ESPN writer Mechelle Voepel and Pat Borzi of MinnPost.com join the show to talk about the dominance of the Minnesota Lynx, the best team in sports right now. Finally, director Adam Hootnick discusses his new film, What Carter Lost, about the combustive intersection of race, education, football, and crime at a Texas high school in 1988.
