In his just released book, Pirates in the Robosphere, Ryan Ferris has no idea what lies ahead when he wins an invitation to a summer robotics camp. He and his new friends work on their animal bots, meet some amazing people, and create their share of mischief and music along the way. Little do they know their adventure is just beginning. As classmates, this group of six boys and girls go on to share experiences they could never have imagined. But the most incredible experience of all proves to be the most dangerous. When the friends learn that one of their greatest teachers is in life-threatening peril half a world away, they must rise to meet a challenge that will test them as never before. Even with the help of their bots and some super smart colleagues from nearby Weatherall University and an air base in Nevada, they feel totally unprepared. Can the friends and their bots rise to the occasion when it matters most?
LIsten is as Dan discusses his book, robotics for kids, and much more.

The guys dig into the Pittsburgh Pirates to start the show, as injuries to Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker have hamstrung the team for the time being. Can they expect to keep up their pace without two of their most important players? Who has impressed the most in their absence? Should expectations be adjusted for this team? Also, the Steelers begin their preseason this weekend against the Giants. What are some things to look for in the exhibition season? Matt, Larry and Zac then close the program with their Final Thoughts before signing off.
The MLB non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone, and for the second consecutive year the Pittsburgh Pirates have decided to stand pat. City of Champions co-editors Matt Gajtka, Zac Weiss and Larry Snyder discuss what the Bucs' inactivity means to their postseason chances on the latest episode of Three Rivers...One Show on CoC Radio. Can Neal Huntington find a way to add through the waiver trade process? What was it about this year's trade market that left the Pirates out in the cold? Also, the guys address the start of Steelers training camp and a couple bits of news that have emerged from Latrobe.

City of Champions editor Matt Gajtka welcomes staff writers Larry Snyder and Zac Weiss for another edition of Burgh Brew, a highly-caffeinated dose of Pittsburgh sports talk. This week's episode looks into the volatile prospects of the Pirates, who - despite being in fourth place in the NL Central - could be considered the favorites to win the division at the all-star break. Matt, Larry and Zac wonder what the Bucs can afford to improve and which aspects of their game could carry them to a pennant. Also, the guys analyze the Penguins' offseason and ask if they need to do anything else before training camp begins in the fall. Will Sidney Crosby be fully healthy in time for Game 1?
The Washington Nationals trailed the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 after seven but rallied to tie it up on an Adam LaRoche home run in the eighth then won it on a walk-off double by Wilson Ramos in the ninth. 4-3 final.
