Welcome in to Episode 51 of The Weekly Brew podcast. It has been a sad, challenging week in America, with Alton Sterling and Philando Castile dying at the hands of police in Louisiana and Minnesota and Micah Johnson shooting and killing five police officers in Dallas shortly thereafter.
Kevin, Austin and Jeremy examine the recent shootings and, in particular, the advent of Facebook Live video and the impact of social media on the way America experiences and responds to violent tragedies.
Fortunately, sports still go on and act as a much-needed respite during times of tribulation. Ryan Dunsmore, managing editor of SB Nation’s The Crawfish Boxes, joins us to talk about the Astros, who have been one of the best teams in the MLB since May. He shares some insight into what’s fueled the turnaround and whether Dallas Keuchel has finally turned the corner, returning to his Cy Young form.
