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).
