This week, Isaac tortures Demetria by forcing her to listen to him talk about baseball. But really, baseball is fun so we should all take joy in her learning about it.

Oh also we’ll cover one of the biggest sporting scandals in American history or whatever. It’s a tale of labor laws, sports gambling, legal shenanigans, and all other things classically American as we all go out to the ball game!
