This is the episode they should be listening to in school.

Well done, and kudos to Scott, Sherali and Sophia for their honesty.

Listening now.

Was worried, you started out with multiple "Ums and ahhs" but you managed to reel it in.

Sounds good now!

Devil's advocate: What about folks on the Spectrum?!? (Not that I'm even remotely interested
in a career in sports media), but my kind aren't exactly overly-represented in the mainstream
media either!! Besides, we're collectively much too busy hanging (sometimes literally, aah, TOO GRIM!!) around in basements, libraries, and perhaps psych wards to really pay that much attention to
the genders, skin tones, and sexual preferences of all those endless multitudes of 'sports bingo' callers!!! All contrarian ball-busting aside, a lot of important ground was covered in a finite amount of time. Nicely done.
