    Sports Palooza: Outside magazine's Brian Alexander & the Future of the Olympics

    in Sports

    Our guest today is Brian Alexander is a writer and author based in California. A frequent contributor to NBCNews and Outside magazine, his work has appeared in The New York Times, The New York Times magazine, Wired, Esquire, The Los Angeles Times magazine, and many others. His most recent book is The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex, and the Science of Attraction, written with neuroscientist Larry Young. Follow him on Twitter at@BrianRAlexander. He is also a frequent contributor to Outside magazine. 


    The jury is still out as to who will host the 2024 Olympic Games, and while two cities have already dropped out of the running, balking at the financial drain of hosting, Los Angeles remains in the quest. But is it worth it? 
    OUTSIDE Magazine, America’s leading active lifestyle brand, argues no. In fact, while we’re at it, let’s forget about hosting the Olympics in the United States at all—not just in 2024, but forever. Should we? 


    We also talk about the Oscars and sports films and, of course, the NFL playoffs. JOIN US!

    Previewing the NBA Trade Deadline

    in Basketball

    Houston Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff called his team “broken” recently, and with the team currently out of the playoffs Dwight Howard could be on the move.


    However, trading Howard may not be as easy as it sounds in theory as colleague Ben DuBose explained in a SheridanHoops column.


    Trades talks are heating up with less than a week until the trade deadline on February 18.


    Another player who may be dealt at the deadline is Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris who has wanted out since the summer when the team dealt his brother, Marcus, to the Detroit Pistons.


    With that in mind, Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops.com joined Sportsnet 590 The Fan radio to discuss the latest on trade rumblings around the league and what the Rockets will do with Dwight Howard.

    SATURDAY HIGH NOON


     


    What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county.  A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."


    So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; as implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his cronies in the state legislature.


    Program Summary: Feb. 13, 2016


    Hear Doug Annstaedt, executive director of the Kansas Press Association on open meeting law reforms before the Kansas state legilature.


    2nd Hour - Hear the latest (released for distribution 20 Feb. 2015) from investigative reporter, Tony Gosling & "Old Labour" Martin Summer as they host from Bristol's community radio station the "Friday Drivetime" show.
