Grey Johnson (BoxRec.com)
Presented by Gratwick. Grey jumps in the ring with Ernie to go Inside The Distance on his love of boxing and how he made a career out of the sport. Grey shares his thoughts on the recent Wrestlemania and the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin. As someone who grew up in Massachusetts without a lot of friends his age, Grey found friendship and community in the world of boxing. Many people in the boxing world know the name Grey Johnson, but they’re not familiar with him personally so it affords him a bit of anonymity he enjoys. The hardest challenge for BoxRec.com is often verifying the legitimacy of foreign fights, something that social media and live-streaming have made a bit easier. Grey shares a little bit about how he got involved with the Boston Boxing Series and what it was like being a scorekeeper for the New Hampshire boxing commission. That gave him a unique perspective on how these smaller states can compete with the big 3 for major events and even smaller boxing events. The big question, is boxing a dying sport or is that only amongst the white fans? Join the show live in the Gratwick Discord every Monday night. Boxing's Official Record Keeper

Dave Levinthal: From Tonanwanda News to Senior Washington DC Political Correspondent
Ernie’s debut episode features guest Dave Levinthal, senior political correspondent for Insider. The two discuss Daves journey from a small town paper where he and Ernie became friends all the way to his rise to senior political correspondent for the most powerful city in the world. Dave recalls how he cut his teeth early in his career and how breaking a big WWF story for the Daily Orange was all made possible thanks to a serendipitous conversation with a naked Rock (Dwayne Johnson). In New Hampshire Dave discovered his competitive advantage. The biggest story hes ever been a part of is a series of articles called Conflicted Congress and the biggest story he couldn’t print was a sex scandal of an extremely powerful politician that he fell just short of hard confirmation. Dave gives advice on how to find the positives when working in a political cesspool. Dave originally considered sports journalism but wanted to remain a fan so the next best thing was being a referee for politics. Dave keeps his DMs open and that has led to some very crazy messages. Ernie and Dave wrap up talking Bills fandom and trading Van Miller stories. Listen or engage with Inside the Distance live every Monday at 6pm pacific by joining the Gratwick Discord Server.
