West Virginia native and WNBA star Renee Montgomery joins the show this week, and the timing couldn't be better.
This episode was recorded before Montgomery announced she would step away from the Atlanta Dream this season to help with the social justice movement. We get into her time growing up in St. Albans, the controversy when she and several high school teammates transferred en masse from Capital to South Charleston, playing for a college powerhouse at UConn and her journey so far as a professional -- which includes two world championships. We also get caught up on what Montgomery has been doing to help the protesters in Atlanta. One of our best episodes yet!
West Virginia Power broadcaster David Kahn joins the show this week to get us caught up on what's going on with the Seattle Mariners' South Atlantic League affiliate as baseball is paused due to the pandemic with the possibility of labor strife at the major league level and contraction at the minor league level looming.
