This is our Part 2 interview with WFAA ABC 8 Mavericks reporter Irvin Castellanos (@TwittIrv). This episode is a little late but we talk about Mark Cuban not playing the national anthem and then playing it once the NBA found out about it. We also talked some baseball since he grew up a Texas Rangers fan and I grew up an LA Dodgers fan; which leads to a discussion on the MLB Word Series bubble that was held in Texas because of COVID-19. Also, since Irvin co-hosts his own Simpsons podcast (Eat My Shorts: A Simpsons Podcast), he tells me what his favorite Simpsons episode is (spoiler: it involves sports!) Lastly, I finish the podcast with the second-ever Molotov MVP segment, where I decide to pick co-Molotov MVPs: Oregon women's college basketball star Sedona Prince (@sedonaprince_) and former NBA player and University of Wisconsin men's college basketball player Nigel Hayes (@NIGEL_HAYES). This past week, both players (March 17 and March 19) called out the NCAA's hypocrisy and corruption. Prince exposed the NCAA's gender bias when she tweeted a video of a very empty and basic weight room set up at the NCAA women's basketball tournament. Prince then gave her followers a glimpse of the men's tournament weight room which was fully stocked and looked like an actual weight room. On March 17, Nigel Hayes was quoted in the UK's The Guardian. The article, 'I signed my life to rich white guys': athletes on the racial dynamics of college sports," was written by our End of Sport Podcast comrades Nathan Kalman-Lamb, Derek Silva, and Johanna Mellis. Nigel Hayes rightfully called out the NCAA exploitation of Black Athletes in college sports.

ep 9: "Eyes of Texas" & Jerry Jones hits the "Jackpot" while Texans Freeze w/ WFAA Mavs Reporter Irvin Castellanos (Part 1)
Sports As A Weapon Podcast
In today's episode, I'm joined by Irvin Castellanos (@TwittIrv), who covers the Dallas Mavericks for Dallas ABC-affiliate WFAA 8. He is also the co-host of the Eat My Shorts: A Simpsons Podcast (@eatmyshortspod). First, we get into crazy Texas Governor Greg Abbott ending the statewide mask mandate that goes into effect on March 10, 2021. Then, Irvin and I breakdown The Texas Tribune's investigative report from last week (3/1/2021). The bombshell report revealed racist, angry emails from wealthy University of Texas boosters; who threatened to pull back their financial support of the university because the football team didn't sing the "Eyes of Texas" after a game last season.Next, we discuss Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hitting the "Jackpot" while Texans froze to death, and talked some NBA, Dallas Mavericks and the NBA All-Star weekend (which will be over when you hear this episode lol). To end the podcast, I introduce a new recurring podcast segment I call the "Molotov MVP." This is Part 1 of 2 with Irvin. Part 2 should be dropping later this week.

We welcome first-time special guest Cole Battle (esteemed policy wonk and political pundit), who joins us to finally crack open a big fat spray-tanned topic we always skirt around but never really dive into--The U.S. in the present day as a result of its fraudulent and dumb president.We attempt to answer the bewildering question of "how did we get here?" by recounting some of the major events of the last presidential election. We also lay out some of the major players in the sordid story and the roles they've played in conning America, discuss the Mueller report and the man behind this mysterious and looming investigation, and look at our nightmare president's constant attacks on the fourth estate (I wanted to come across like a real professional so I wrote "fourth estate").Tune in tomorrow for the conclusion!
