- M.L. Elrick (Twitter @elrick/Facebook ML ELRICK/Instagram ml_elrick) breaks news on the biggest story in the world — just by looking at his phone! But first, Shawn Windsor (Twitter @ShawnWindsor) and Marc Fellhauer (Twitter @MarcFell) question whether ML is on the RIGHT meds. Jim Comparoni (Twitter @JimComparoni) of SpartanMag.com dials in to this hornet’s nest.
- THE STRAIGHT DOPE: Jim shares what it was light to ride the lightning — giving us an inside look of his effort to keep up with the latest rumors on the Michigan State football coaching search.
- Marc asks Jim about his process for separating rumors from truth.
- Jim reveals how he gets some of his inside information — then reveals how a kid’s Snapchat conversation turned out to be more accurate than anything reported on the Spartan coaching search.
- ML — in the middle of the damn show! — breaks major news before anyone else on the face of the planet. Even Jim does a double-take!
- Shawn delivers some bad news for Spartan fans. DAMN SHAWN! (Did we mention he lives in ANN ARBOR …?)
- Jim provides some insights on the news gathering process — and how he thinks it’s ok to share some grapevine juice in one spot even if he’ll only serve fine wine on the front page of SpartanMag.com.
- Listen and learn how reporters — and civilians — track charter flights.
- ML BLOWS JIM’S MIND WITH A WORLD EXCLUSIVE REPORT. (Scoopsville! Looks like The Kid’s still got it!)
- THE GREAT DEBATE: Two odd little states play an outsized role in picking the next president of the United States. ML worked in one of those states for nearly 5 years. He vigorously battles Shawn’s effort to ALTER THE COURSE OF HUMAN HISTORY! (Wow!) Oh, Marc weighs in, too.
- GEEK OF THE WEEK: A Major League pitcher turns into a major league bitcher.
- ROOM 7609: The quintessential guest checks in — a band that received no acclaim with a great tune that achieved no acclaim. And did we mention that this week’s solution is the only NuWave tune ever produced in da UP, eh?
