    The Exchange - It's Been Too Long

    in Sports

    Six months.


    A lot can change in six months, and it certainly has. Yet, when the calendar flipped to April and the sports world began to gear up towards the most exciting time of the year, it was damn near impossible to stay dormant another day longer.


    Tonight, The Exchange is back!


    Sumit and Jason have missed the masses, and hopefully the masses feel the same. Oh, and it's the fourth anniversary of the show, so now would be a great time to sort of celebrate.


    The guys are joined by the newest addition to The Sports Fan Journal family and Memphis native Rosalyn Ross as the trio will dive into the upcoming NBA playoffs. They'll talk about teams of intrigue, players of note, the races for 8th in both conferences and DAMMIT, KLAY THOMPSON DID IT AGAIN!

    The Exchange - The Fight and the Fury of Many

    in Sports

    Some will order the event on pay-per-view, some will not. Many will watch through alternative means or go to fight parties. After Saturday, all will look for a new statement on the legacy of the victor, for better or worse.


    On the best Saturday in sports, the high stakes playoff games of the NBA and NHL, the intrigue of baseball, the shoehorned "me too!" end of the NFL Draft and the Kentucky Derby are actually preludes to a historic evening in Las Vegas.


    On a Wednesday edition of The Exchange, Sumit and Jason are joined by The Sports Fan Journal's boxing and MMA columnist Paul Navarro as they will discuss the welterweight megafight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. They will not only dive into their observations of the fight itself, but the controversies around it. With boycott calls as well as the well-sourced Deadspin article regarding Mayweather's history with domestic violence, what will still end up being the most lucrative fight card in boxing history is also one with an omnipotent morality play.


    They will also discuss where the sport has been trending with its increased presence on television thanks Al Haymon's multi-channel Premier Boxing Champions series.

    The Exchange - We Now Join the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Already in Progress

    in Sports

    Why in the world is anyone talking about anything other than, you know, sports actually being played right now? Shoutout to all talking about a third-string quarterback.


    On The Exchange, Jason will be joined by frequent guest and fellow colleague at The Sports Fan Journal, Dillon Friday to talk about the ongoing first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.


    There are plenty of questions to ask as sixteen teams slowly whittle down to eight. Can the Pittsburgh Penguins restore some of their luster against the favorites to win the East in the New York Rangers? Will the Islanders continue the party to close out Nassau Coliseum? What can we make of the most interesting series going between St. Louis and Minnesota? Further, what can we take from the commanding series leads by Montreal and Anaheim, the latter with three brilliant comeback wins against the Winnipeg Jets?

    Health Plan Comparison and Private Exchange Financial Management

    in Business

    On this program, hosts Doug and Brent will first discuss the challenges that consumers and employers face today around escalating health care costs and will look particularly at plan selection tools and analytics. For the second half of the program, they will look at financial management considerations for private health insurance exchanges. 


    In the first segment, Dr. Adrian Rawlinson, chief medical officer of Obeo Health, will join the program to discuss the challenges that consumers and employers face today around escalating health care costs. Consumers are often confused and suspicious when new plan offerings are presented to them. Tasks such as picking a health plan, choosing a provider and understanding medical bills can be a frustrating and bewildering experience. The team at Obeo Health has set out to change that with sophisticated yet simple-to-use tools that highlight the benefits of HSAs, CDHPs and allow consumers to model out-of-pocket expenses. These tools combine Big Data prescriptive analytics with personalized health information to provide unprecedented insight into – and influence over – health care choices and expenses.


    For the second segment, the hosts will welcome Brian Ridder, VP of business development at Benaissance, back to the program. In this interview, Brian and the hosts will discuss Brian's upcoming Private Exchange FORUM workshop, "Optimizing Employee and Employer Needs in a Private Exchange – From Enrollment to Premium Billing."
