Episode #645

We don’t pay much attention to sports around here, but when a significant cultural icon like Muhammad Ali dies, that’s worth taking notice of. Due to his impact on a wide swath of society, there are a lot of songs about Ali or that drop his name. And then there are the other songs about boxing. We’ve got a good helping of both today. We’ve also got some great new music and a couple of exciting shows to talk about, both near and far away!
