In today’s podcast, Dan Shafer of The Recombobulation Area (and respected member of Milwaukee Bucks Twitter) joins Kyle and Adam to discuss the Milwaukee Bucks strike in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha. They dive into the machinations of the strike, its ripple effect not just across the bubble but across all sports, and how the team came together to create meaningful change during a time of such heightened emotion.
Dan has been covering the Wisconsin State Legislature’s inaction as well as anybody throughout this year, and he breaks down the series of actions (or inactions) that led us to the point of Tony Evers impending special session scheduled for Monday. From a series of police reform bills from WI Senator LaTonya Johnson that have sat on the shelf for years to the Republican leadership’s continued choice to gavel in and gavel out of special sessions with no debate, Dan walks through what we can likely expect in the latest session.
Lastly, we all provide a brief rundown of what to expect in Milwaukee’s second round series against the Miami Heat.
