SORT BY Relevancy
I’m here every Thursday at 11am CST to talk about the hot sports topics of the week and to bring you interviews and guests that go beyond the headlines and typical highlights and scores. Of course this is a sports show so we’ll talk about what’s happening on the field and court…but here you’ll get a different perspective and unique voice on everything that is sports.
Tune in for a preview of the Houston Texans training camp. It’s that time of year and the Texans will soon be a household name. At least on HBO Sports as they are the “Hard Knocks” team for 2015. Our NFL team is gearing up for the season and so are we!
We’re keeping our eyes on the Houston Astros. Will they make a deal before the MLB trade deadline? How good can this team be? Are they really ready for the post season? We’ll talk about it and have a special baseball guest to help us navigate the conversation.
All of this and more on Chalk Talk… sports talk for women and anyone who wants to be informed and entertained!

Today we are talking with Chris Sturdevant who recently returned from a trip in North Korea
Has you know North Korea is probably the most Secretive Country on the face of the planet and Chris had the chance to participate in an international Track meet, Visit the USS Pueblo and see other sights while there. I heard about Chris via Armando F. Sanchez’s series on Cold War Spying and could not pass up the chance to have this show.
Below is a Channel 4 Milwaukee news interview and provides context on Chris’s visit to North Korea.
By Steve Chamraz. CREATED Apr 24, 2015 - UPDATED: Apr 24, 2015
MILWAUKEE - It's one of the few places Americans supposedly cannot go, but Chris Sturdevant ran through the streets of North Korea earlier this month as a welcome tourist.
"The people of North Korea are very warm, they're very genuine, they are very welcoming," Sturdevant said of his brief trip to the capital city of Pyongyang.
The librarian and competitive runner ventured into the communist nation as part of a running tour group. Some ran in the Pyongyang marathon, Sturdevant raced the 10K, finishing second in his group.

We are honored to reach the president of NAS , Mr. Allen Omoruyi Sonny. He leads approximately 1000 Nigerians living in Japan. When he was asked “Who is sponsoring the organization?” he answered “ourselves” candidly suggesting the hardship of living in Japan as Nigerians. As an organization to support women and children in Nigeria, SWACIN is glad to know the Nigerian organization in Japan to say the least, as we have searched them throughout Japan past two years! He has graduated from University of Bennin, Nigeria, earned BSC (Mathematics) After working for Ministry of Education in Nigeria for years, he got married to a Japanese woman, and now runs personal computer sales business. He says, his organization, “National Association of Seadogs (NAS) is a registered Nigerian charitable and humanitarian organization, founded by a Nigerian playwright and poet, Wole Soyinka and six other students in 1952. Mr. Soyinka was awarded the 1986 Nobel Prize in Literature, the first African to be honored. It began as a University Campus group but has grown into an international organization with branches in 36 states of Nigeria overseas including Japan, South Africa, UK, Republic of Ireland, USA, The Netherland and Canada. NAS is dedicated to humanitarian and charitable endeavors within Nigeria and whatever society the members find themselves.”

Jeju Island welcomes more than a million tourists to its beaches, resorts and UNESCO Natural World Heritage sites every month. The number has grown dramatically every year, from 5 million in 2005 to more than 12 million last year, driven by the economic confidence of a powerful domestic middle class and the package tours of China's nouveaux riche. The effect of the increase in visitors on the environmental and social stability of this island of 500,000 is dramatic and ongoing. Ann Bush is a writer, teacher and activist from Berkley, California. Her work for The Jeju Weekly magazine has brought an articulate and insightful outsider’s take on the art, history and culture of the island. In this interview she discusses the value and dangers of tourism's economic benefits and the sanctity of cultural solidarity in the face of massive change.

"Hey You Guys!!"
We're sharing our travel tales and adventures because we've traveled and adventured!
Gus and Adam are Danimator's work pals from Storm8 and they hit Japan recently ... but for the second time (possibly more).
What happened? Where did they go? Did they see any giant robots?
"It's a Gundam!"
Biff had an awesome family camping adventure and that always sparks campfire conversations.
Danimator may have advice on how to build a better camp fire ... because YouTube. But Biff has knives, so ... maybe not?
Danimator drove to Seattle for a wedding and he hit Astoria on the way home ... and since it's been 30 years since The Goonies hit theaters ... so ... there's that.
In other words, we're doing what we do best. Ramble on about awesome geeky stuff with friends!
"It's out time! It's OUR TIME down HERE!!"
