We're back finally and have a rerecorded ep fresh for you! Amy comes on and Clifton finally has a coming out as we talk Serena, women's sports, and the intersections of race and gender leading to bullshit umpiring decisions.

In this very special episode, we get to talk to Clifton's mom, Tonya, about her experiences being an educator in Chicago Public Schools. We get into mental health stigmas, limitations of the current educational climate, and corruption around athletic programs being more deep than just a search for glory.
The boys are finally back with a late episode after partying for the holidays with Illinois Single Payer Coalition board member, Sean Zolfo. Sean talks with us on what options sport has culturally and economically in a society built on the values of democracy and equality.
Episode 3 and hopefully the last one that sounds like it was recorded with a shoe. Talking the ethics being ignored by the stat head revolution, why Clifton doesn't fit in to the Texas lifestyle, and asking why people think there's such a thing as a good owner.

We're back with an episode on Iverson's chain size, why baseball should embrace their own history that looks more like Malice in the Palace than Field of Dreams, and why even ballers need a good union.
