This episode’s guest is not only a restaurateur, but also the founder and host of Kentucky Sports Radio, Matt Jones. He is the co-author, along with Chris Tomlin, of the New York Times Bestselling book Mitch, Please, which is not only a tour of all 120 Kentucky counties, but a critique of Kentucky’s longtime United States Senator Mitch McConnell, as well as an autobiographical recounting of Jones’s decision of whether or not to challenge the Senate Majority Leader.

Matt and I take a deep dive into his book, discuss frustrations with the political process, and also three recurring characters in the narrative: New York Senator Chuck Schumer, Senate candidate Amy McGrath, and a mysterious figure we only know as The Tracker.

Plus, we discuss how restaurants such as his sports bar KSBar are doing during the current shutdown, prospects for reopening restaurants, the great East-West restaurant divide that he discovered during his tour of Kentucky, and, of course, whether or not sports will come back soon.
