Talking Gay Marriage, Bar Sales and The NBA Draft.
Welcome to the This Is Dallas podcast, where our weekly focus is the City of Dallas and all interesting things happening around it. Wanna subscribe to it on iTunes? You can do so right here. Also, peep the archives here.
This week, professional radio talker Mike Marshall and I start things off on a big, happy note, talking the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage and Dallas' awesome, immediate embrace of that ruling — especially in the face of statewide opposition.
From there, our minds perhaps naturally progress to another kind celebration — drinking, specifically. That allows us the chance to discuss this story from last week on the impressive bar sales from around town.
Finally, I pick Mike's mind on the Mavericks' NBA Draft picks and try to defend the team's second-round selection of Indian center Satnam Singh.
But that's not all we talk about — not by a longshot. Also up for discussion?
• Did I have a seizure?
• Why are people so into picnic tables?
• Why was Tyler Seguin really mean to me that one time?
• What ever happened with Casey Kasem's dead body?
• How's the pro basketball scene in China these days?
• Where does Chandler Parson live?
All that, plus we listen to some killer tracks from our favorite albums from the first half of 2015, including songs from Andy Pickett, Sad Cops and Plain Jane Francis & Tony Q.
So just hit the damn play button, OK?
