Ep 112: Chris Paul is a Rocket! (w/@EricTrillman_)

Rocket

This is really happening

Welcome to episode 112: Chris Paul is a Rocket!

Chicken Social contributor Eric Trillman joined us to talk the latest and greatest in this year’s NBA offseason and answer some key questions: Does Houston adding Chris Paul make them good enough to beat Golden State? Will Paul George stay in Oklahoma City for more than a year? And, is anything else crazy going to happen?

Obes and Cha then look at an extremely troubling story involving the NCAA: Mo Bamba, a top 10 high school basketball player, was ratted out to the NCAA for accepting illegal benefits…by his own brother. What’s going on here?

Last, but not least, Kansas Secretary of State and Trump Election Integrity Committee vice-chair Kris Kobach is mobilizing what appears to be a large-scale data grab for state voter information. What’s the end game here?

All that and more, this week on the Chicken Social.

Ep 111: Twitter, Killing Jobs Since 2006 (w/@ReasonsAre)

Twitter

There are worse god-given talents to have…

Welcome to episode 111: Twitter, Killing Jobs Since 2006 (w/@ReasonsAre)

This week, Obes and Cha are joined by Matt from the Reasons Are Several podcast. Matt shared his opinion on whether or not you should delete your Twitter account when you become famous and becomes the first non-Chicken Social host to participate in a Chicken Medley.

We noticed that Chadwick Boseman is playing Thurgood Marshall in a new biopic so we tried figure out: a) why Mr. Boseman is getting all the work and b) why we’re ignoring colorism in these black biopics.

Last but certainly not least, we wonder aloud why Booger McFarland is talking out of both sides of his mouth. How could Cam Newton be a great leader last year and a terrible one the next? And why does he think reigning Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson should switch to playing wide receiver?

All that and more, this week on the Chicken Social.

Ep 110: Secret Trumpcare and Other Foolishness (w/@KashannKilson)

Trumpcare

“I did it all by myself” -Donald Trump

Welcome to episode 110: Secret Trumpcare and Other Foolishness

Chicken Social political contributor Kashann Kilson joins the show to look at the week that was in politics including: Jeff Sessions not answering any questions in front of the Senate, the GOP committing what *seems* to be political suicide by going so hard to pass Trumpcare and, Trump is under investigation. Yup, he sure is.

Obes and Cha then take a look at the Cleveland Cavaliers quest to make the two of us prophets by trading for Paul George or Jimmy Butler.

Last, but certainly not least, we discuss the Wisconsin gerrymandering case that has made its way to the Supreme Court. Is this the end of gerrymandering?

Ep. 109: Who Can Beat Golden State? (w/ @LyndsayALee)

Golden State

Kevin Durant – Champion

Welcome to episode 109: Who Can Beat Golden State? (w/ @LyndsayALee)

On this week’s episode, Lyndsay Lee, former ESPN television producer and Rivals.com head of social media, joins us to discuss ESPN’s new feature “The Shop”. We talked to her about Lebron James’ contention that Tom Brady couldn’t be the best athlete of all time and try to decide who might be. We also discussed the difference between being good at something versus being passionate about it as we try to figure out how, as Draymond Green states, there are a lot of NBA players who don’t know how to play basketball.

Next, Cha and Obes look back at the NBA Finals to try to figure out what moves teams could make to beat the Golden State Warriors.

Finally, we discuss, among other things, how all of this year’s playoffs could’ve been avoided if OKC wouldn’t have panic-traded James Harden to Houston.

Welcome back to the Chicken Social for Episode 108: Kyrie Needs to Do More

This week, the boys are back at it to discuss President Trump pulling the US out of the Paris Climate Accords to figure out what the dumbass’ end game is. What does that move mean?

We then try to figure out why it is that Lebron’s teams in his last two stops have been so inept without him despite having such great talent on the roster.

We also jump through our favorite topics of the day in the Chicken Medley, including 10 students who have to find a new place to go to school in the fall after being “un-accepted” from Harvard. Why?
