August 7, 2020

Co-hosts Aaron Arruda and Chris Mycoskie begin with a recap of the week's news, including the explosion in Beirut (3:00), President Trump threatening to ban TikTok (5:55), Mike Golic's run on ESPN Radio ending (8:46), and Mulan coming directly to Disney Plus (13:05).

This week's guest is Chris Halicke, who covers Major League Baseball and the Texas Rangers beat for Sports Illustrated (21:11). While fans are banned from attending MLB games right now, he's one of the privileged few who get to be inside the ballpark (28:30). We've already seen the Marlins and Cardinals suffer COVID-19 outbreaks in their clubhouses, so what is his level of optimism for the season being played to completion (35:30)?

August 1, 2020

While Chris Mycoskie was upset about Cory Kluber and Jose Leclerc suffering injuries for his beloved Texas Rangers, it turns out a different affliction would affect the show more directly. Aaron Arruda ruptured his Achilles tendon this week while playing pickleball

 

After going over the play-by-play of that pain, Chris talks about the massive amount of debt he overcame with the help of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University course (8:05).

 

This week's guest is Shawn Lane from Financial Renovation Solutions, Inc. He works to better people's lives, in part by helping them improve their credit scores (19:52).

Ep. 5: Major League BotBall

Ep. 5: Major League BotBall

July 17, 2020

Aaron Arruda and Chris Mycoskie start with a lengthy discussion on the biggest news items of the week, including the Washington NFL team finally dropping its controversial nickname (3:30), President Trump serving as a pitchman for Goya Foods after some called for a boycott (14:24), a massive Twitter hack that compromised verified accounts (20:29), and the return of the Ford Bronco (26:24).

Aaron and Chris welcome in three guests from the Major League BotBall community (34:50): Eric Garment, Mark Colley, and Justin Rocke. With the real MLB shutting down in March, Gerrit Hall had an idea to simulate each team’s 162-game season and stream games on Twitch. What makes this different and special is the fact that MLBotBall uses live broadcasters. Some are pros like Justin and Chris, others are aspiring to do it as a career, while a good number have little or no experience. They just love baseball. Plus, there’s an active community with fans serving as their favorite ballclubs’ general managers.

The actual MLB season begins next week, but there won’t be fans in the stands. That means no road trips to ballgames (1:22:57). And for a lot of people, this has been a summer without vacations due to COVID-19. It put a halt to Chris and his wife Cassie’s journey to visit all 50 states (1:29:55).

June 26, 2020

This week’s episode begins with technology expert Aaron examining the ways it has changed our lives during the pandemic. Zoom has been the home of a lot of big events for Chris lately, including his grandfather’s funeral (4:44).  

ESPN and Stadium basketball analyst Tim Scarborough joins us for a conversation (8:59). Chris and Tim were scheduled to call games at the Conference USA tournament before COVID-19 forced its cancelation. Now, Tim’s gearing up for TBT - The Basketball Tournament on ESPN, July 4-14 (13:11). He also gives us his perspective on social justice issues on the week three men were indicted in the death of Ahmaud Arbery in Atlanta (16:58). As the NBA prepares to restart, Tim believes players have a great forum to speak out and help enact positive change (18:53).

To close the show, Chris and Aaron discuss attitudes towards food during COVID-19 isolation (25:38). Aaron has been heavily into smoking meat (34:13). Is using a pellet grill cheating?

Aaron Arruda and Chris Mycoskie begin with what they’ve learned in 2020.

The Ticket's Bob Sturm is the show’s first guest (9:35). He talks about the higher purpose he’s found to his great job as a sports radio host (16:58) and how his faith can be boiled down to “What Would Jesus Do?” (26:10). We address Steve Chapman’s column, which calls for the Texas Rangers baseball team to change its name (47:25). Plus, Chris throws out a hypothetical question about the Washington Redskins and whether Robert Griffin III could have forced that team’s name to be altered in 2012 (1:11:45).
