Dave Overlund and I have similar backgrounds. We both grew up as big sports fans in Minnesota and pursued a career in sports broadcasting while studying at St. Cloud State University. Dave has stayed on that path, working in radio in St. Cloud for several years.

Dave joined me for this conversation to discuss that fiasco now that nearly two months have passed. Plus we talk about St. Cloud itself, a city with changing demographics including many from Somalia.

Kobe Bryant died a few days before the recording so we spend a few minutes sharing our perspectives on him and the aftermath of his death.
