Episode 107: Augusta
Masters week so we're talking Augusta, Georgia! Joining Tron and Randy to discuss his home town is the man affectionately known as McSchvantz on our message board, The Refuge. A native of Augusta, McSchvantz gives us his perspective on the city, including what it was like every April when the tournament rolled around. We ask him about the Savannah River Site, Augusta's rivalry with Aiken, the Pro Disc Golf Scene, and much more. Enjoy!
Episode 106: H-Town
Our Houston guest is ESPN's Bomani Jones. Bomani spent a large chunk of his childhood in Houston and talks about what that was like. He compares Houston to other places he's lived and what makes it unique. Also, Randy asks about his background in Economics, teaching college, and they get into some basketball-related subjects, specifically around James Harden. Fun fact too, Bomani blocked Tron on twitter years ago--we read the tweet and ask him if he'll reconsider. Check out Bomani's podcast, 'The Right Time with Bomani Jones', as well as across a number of ESPN platforms. Enjoy!
Episode 105: A Conversation with Wright Thompson

Sunny SoCal! TC and Randy welcome Travis Rodgers on this week. Travis currently works for ESPN 710 in LA. Prior to that he had his own show, Travis Rodgers NOW, and prior to that was a producer on the Jim Rome Show for nearly 15 years. Travis grew up in the greater Los Angeles area before attending UC Santa Barbara on a baseball scholarship.
