Episode 33: Chaotic Cavs, Coaching Crisis, and Cleveland Coffee

For our 33rd episode, we have a (temporary) change: we altered the “beer of the week” to “brew of the week”. What does that mean, exactly? Well, we don’t feature a beer; instead, we feature coffee. Give the episode a listen to learn which coffee shop we feature!

The Brew of the Week ties right into our first topic, which is our Top Five Cleveland coffee shops. Don’t worry — there are no Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts on this list, Clevelanders and hipsters.

After that we discuss our poll of the week (did you vote in the 2018 midterm elections?). Dan and Jordan each give a few thoughts on voting and why they believe it’s important. There isn’t any ideological or party preferences, just mainly on the importance of voting.

Next up is sports, where we chat about the fallout from the firings of Hue Jackson and Todd Haley and how resilient and strong Baker Mayfield has been through it all. Despite all the chaos, Dan and Jordan see a silver lining behind it all. The Cavs, however, are a different story. While they seem a bit more promising, they are unable to close out close games. Kevin Love is out for a month. JR wants a trade. The list goes on, but at least we don’t have to worry about the Warriors anymore…

We conclude with a preview of some fun events coming to Cleveland this month.
