Dr. Elizabeth Strom joins us this episode to talk about the Tampa Bay Rays' new stadium project announced in late January. She has a unique insight - first, she has covered the Rays' years-long quest for a stadium upgrade for DRaysBay.com, the Rays blog on SBNation since 2016. She is also an associate professor in the School of Public Affairs at the University of South Florida in Tampa. where she researches in housing issues as well as urban politics & policy. She provides a fascinating look into how public-private stadium projects are evolving to serve their teams, fans and communities.
In part 2, Rex rates Rolling Stone magazine's top ten heavy metal songs of all time - five of which are either Black Sabbath songs from 1970 or songs by Black Sabbath adjacent artists with none released after 1988.
