Part 1

:17 - Akron mayor Dan Horrigan called into the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss the most important issues in the country and how they're affecting the Akron area. The mayor first talked about the Coronavirus, then he talked about the death of 18-year-old Nakia Crawford and the recent police reform legislation, both locally in Akron and nationally.

11:13 - Who are Antifa? What is the Boogaloo? Dr. Karl Kaltenthaler from the Bliss Institute at the University of Akron came on to talk about the protests these last few weeks, who may be behind the violent riots and looting, and how to parse out which information is politically biased or not.


Part 2

:17 - Cases are starting to pile up in southern states like Texas and Florida. Should these areas that are getting hit hard require all their citizens to wear masks?

5:45 - Are those aforementioned southern states experiencing a second wave of COVID-19, or is this still the first wave? It's been a while since University of Akron microbiologist Dr. Richard Londraville has been on the show, and he touched on what he's learned about the virus since his last visit.

13:02 - Now that Ohio has reopened much of the state, the farming industry is making a slow rebound. Ty Higgins from the Ohio Farm Bureau talked about the packing plants and how meat is returning to the shelves. He also mentioned the country fairs will be back, albeit at a scaled-down level, and how we'll see a crop surplus come fall.

19:03 - Pro sports are still up in the air. Major League Baseball is in a crisis between its players, the owners, and the commissioner, and the NFL's annual Hall of Fame game may be in jeopardy. And now Kyrie Irving wants to start his own basketball league?
