    in Sports

    On this episode of Talking In Circles we discuss the life and career of the late Steve Byrnes. Byrnes, the former NASCAR Broadcaster lost his life due to a battle with cancer on Tuesday. 


    Also NASCAR has said they are open to an exemption for injured driver Kyle Busch. Busch has been hurt since his opening week accident at Daytona International Speedway. Is this the right decision? 


    David Ragan appears to be headed to the No. 55 at Kansas Speedway in two weeks. Can Ragan make Chase in this ride? 


    Also NASCAR Whelen Modified Tommy Barrett, Jr was arrested and charged with a DUI. That led his Our Motorsports team to suspend him from the race at Stafford Speedway this weekend. Was this the right move by the team? Or another Kurt Busch situation. 


    Mike Wallace had triple bypass surgery last week meaning he will not race in next weekend's NASCAR Xfinity Series race. He will be replaced by his brother Kenny Wallace in the No.26 JGL Racing Toyota. 


    Johanna Long will run the No. 03 this weekend at Richmond. How will she do?

    Joan Rivers honored by Bob Mackie at Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards

    in Current Events

    In this episode, the legendary fashion designer Bob Mackie honored Joan Rivers with a special tribute for her legacy of activism on behalf of those living with HIV and AIDS.  Reported Advocate.com in 10 Celebrity Icons of HIV Activism, "Joan Rivers was many things: a comedic legend, a feminist trailblazer, an uproarious fashion critic, and an unconventional but devoted mother and grandmother. But with all the zings, sling,s and punch lines that made up the persona of Joan Rivers, she was also a relentless HIV activist with a lion’s heart. Rivers began her advocacy work decades ago when she first started volunteering with God’s Love We Deliver, a nonprofit organization delivering food to HIV and AIDS patients in New York City. In 2009, when she won Celebrity Apprentice, she gave all of her earnings from the show to the organization. Her prize money bought 56,000 meals."
