The Great Gerwig Conspiracy of West Virginia
Kirk Minihane is delighting in the cheating scandal surrounding Alex Cora and the Boston Red Sox. The story has everything: media corruption, watching an old enemy flail, and frauds embarrassing themselves. April Reign, the creator of the #OscarSoWhite movement, joins the show to talk about the lack of racial and gender diversity among the Oscar nominees (00:54:30). Boston Mayor Marty Walsh did an interview yesterday on WBUR, but his safe space was interrupted by a couple of prank callers (01:16:26). No fanboys are more inconsolable over the Red Sox news than Jared Carrabis' crew on the Section 10 podcast. Near the end of the show, Kirk stumbles onto perhaps the greatest conspiracy in American history, and subsequently learns that Blind Mike doesn't know how geography and time zones work (01:50:00).
