This week we talk to former baseball MVP, Dave “The Cobra” Parker about his new book “Cobra: A Life of Baseball and Brotherhood.” We talk to Parker about his career, Roberto Clemente, and even get a vocal performance. Also I’ve got some choice words. I also have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards.

We also have “Choice Words” about the last time there was a movement to get MLB to move the All-Star Game over a decade ago. In addition, we also have “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to everyone that helped push MLB to olympian Sakura Kokumai for bringing attention to anti-Asian bigotry in the United States and Georgia governor Brian Kemp, who continues to feed the public nonsense about the racist anti-voting bill in Georgia. All this and more on this week’s show!
