NBA BUBBLE EDITION PT.4
In this Episode of NBA Bubble Edition Pt.4 brought in the homie Jesse on Zoom to talk about the NBA boycott and the players roles as activist in this movement for systemic change. This was a really stimulating conversation as we both shared our stories on where we were when the league stood still, why we think player activism matters, and why ultimately the players decided to stay in the bubble.
We also touched on the playoff first round matchups in the latter part of the episode.

Learning about The Bail Project with Anthony Body
In this Off Menu Podcast episode we talk to Anthony Body of The Bail Project. He is a Bail Disruptor from Cleveland, Ohio and helps in securing bail for individuals in pre-trial detention who cannot afford it. The conversation was really inspiring and thought provoking as Mr. Body pointed out the many frailties of our criminal justice system. Some of the topics include how the cash bail system feeds on the poor as well as how Mr. Body was able to maneuver through the justice system himself. Hope you all learn something!
NOTE: We know that this podcast has morphed into a NBA podcast but we're not talking about hoops this week. This week was about The Bail Project and learning about the issues within the cash bail system in America. Sometimes hoop talk can wait.
NBA BUBBLE EDITION PT 3.
In this Episode of NBA Bubble Edition Pt. 3, brought the man Codie back through the Zoom for back to back episodes.

NBA BUBBLE EDITION PT 2.
In this Episode of NBA Bubble Edition Pt. 2, I talked to the homie Codie about what we have seen this far in the NBA restart and if we think its ultimately going to be successful. We also talked about Devin Booker being a Goat, TJ Warren showing why he should not have been traded for cash considerations, and if Lou Williams really only got chicken wings from Magic City. Hope you guys enjoy the pod!
Note: The Bail Project is an organization that we are continuing to highlight as a group that not just talking about change but actively pursuing it. Their mission is to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system ‒ one person at a time. They are fighting for those who are locked behind bars and who can not effectively secure bail to be released from jail.
