In episode #5, we have an exclusive interview with Team Birr's John Benton and skip Todd Birr. Team Birr was successful in appealing to be included in the upcoming U.S. Olympic Trials after a recent U.S. Curling Association Judiciary Hearing Panel sided with Team Birr in a 2-1 vote (on Sept. 21, 2017).

Birr and Benton talked about the long appeal process before the USCA, the crux of their argument in why they should've originally been selected for the Olympic Trials, overwhelming support from the curling community, new team member Hunter Clawson and now preparing to compete at the Trials in Omaha.
