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)? LINKS:Sports Illustrated Inside the Rangers: https://www.si.com/mlb/rangers/ ...North Texas Nine podcast: https://apple.co/2XDrPCT ...Michelle Lesco eats five pounds of mayo in three minutes: https://youtu.be/Oiwfl9IrZbk   
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). LINKS:Financial Renovation Solutions, Inc.: https://frscredit.com/ ...Robinhood app: https://robinhood.com/us/en/   
This week’s guests are Dr. Vonni Gant and Dameon Madison from The AND Campaign. Have you ever felt too progressive for conservatives, but too conservative for progressives? The AND Campaign encourages everyone to engage in the political process with both love and truth while making all decisions from a Biblical framework.  LINKS:The AND Campaign: https://andcampaign.org/ …Compassion AND Conviction book on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ZUB9UC
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).LINKS:RezScore: https://rezscore.com/ …Major League BotBall: https://mlbotball.com/ …MLBotBall Broadcasts on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/mlbotball …Chris and Cassie’s 50-State Journey: https://tinyurl.com/candc50st
