- Information floods in on what went wrong with Detroit pumping stations, then the crew reveals the student athlete they will sponsor. MSU rower Kaleena Kneiss immediately joins Shawn and Marc in pummeling ML into submission on her compensation package. Joey Zuver just sits and watches and tries to keep the internet from going down.
- THE STRAIGHT DOPE: Detroit News reporter Beth LeBlanc dials in to discuss her recent report revealing that pumps needed to prevent flooding did not have back-up generators. And that’s just part of the unpreparedness she exposed!
- Now that Marc and Shawn have won the debate over whether students athletes should profit off their name, image and likeness, ML introduces Kaleena Kneiss, a member of the Michigan State University rowing team. Negotiations over her compensation commence, and Butchery owner Dave Hubbard enters the fray to sweeten the deal.
