68. Christian Braun: Born For The Border Showdown

The Jayhawker Podcast

Junior Christian Braun was born for the Border Showdown, which returns this winter on the basketball court. Although he claims Burlington, Kansas, as his hometown, his mom’s side of the family is so well-known in Missouri that they are in the state’s athletic Hall of Fame. The whole family. But that didn’t stop Braun from rocking the Crimson and Blue growing up. A late bloomer, Braun turned his family’s competitive nature into a successful high school career and a basketball scholarship to play for his dream school. Now in his third season with the team, Braun still pinches himself when he takes the Allen Fieldhouse floor on gamedays. It’s not a dream, and when he looks into the crowd, he sees himself in those fans in the stands.

Guest: Vivek Sharma, Chair of the Tourism Industry Association of BC. Chapter 4: B.C. nightclubs, casinos and concert halls have faced 15 months of sitting either partially closed or outright shuttered amid the pandemic.

Guest: Bridgitte Anderson, President and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade, part of the Premier’s Economic Recovery Task Force. Chapter 5: Minister Ravi Kahlon was one of those present in making the BC reopening plan announcement along with Premier Horgan, Minister Adrian Dix, and Provincial Health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry.  The pandemic caused many to lose their jobs, businesses, and savings, so how will BC’s new restart plan address all those looking to get employed?
