On this episode, Tatiana sat down with Grand Rapids Community College Title IX Coordinator and Director of Equal Opportunity Compliance Kimberly DeVries. The two discuss the #Metoo movement and what students should do if they feel like they’re being harassed in any way. President Donald Trump declared a national emergency last week but some states, including Michigan are pushing back against Trump. Jack gives his opinion on the situation and discusses whether or not Trump’s move is a lawful one.

The 2019 Oscars are this Sunday and the gang, specifically Aaron, has Oscars fever. The group discusses who they think will win the big awards on Sunday including best picture and best director. Plus they discuss how the Oscars will run smoothly this year with no host at the helm.

Matthew talks about his column discussing what Major League Baseball needs to do to fix free agency and gives his opinion on where Bryce Harper and Manny Machado will sign. GRCC men’s basketball player Ike Kanu joins Mike, Aaron and Matthew in the studio to talk about everything from his days as a boxer to who he models his game after.

Editor’s Note: At the time of recording, Manny Machado was unsigned in MLB free agency. He has since signed with the San Diego Padres.
