It’s March in Grand Rapids which means Gilda’s LaughFest is officially upon us. With so many comedians in town, the topic of offensive comedy has been brought to light. The guys will discuss the direction in which stand up comedy is heading and if younger millennials will still support comedians whose material can be perceived as a bit off color.

The Grand Rapids Community College men’s and women’s basketball teams both lost in the National Junior College Athletic Association Region XII last week which was hosted in GRCC’s Gerald R. Ford Fieldhouse. The guys break down the seasons for each team and highlight the players who earned All-Conference and All-Tournament honors. Mike, Aaron and Matthew are also diving into the latest news out of the NFL including the Antonio Brown trade to the Raiders and the biggest free agency winners and losers so far this off season.
