One of the things that I've started to become wise to in the past year or so is the staggering amount of work and time that professional athletes give back to their communities, and this week I'm really excited that we brought on former Ohio State lineman and current Green Bay Packer Corey Linsley to not just wax poetic about the NFL, but also talk about his work with the Wisconsin branch of Court Appointed Special Advocates.
CASA volunteers work with children who are under the protection of the court system, and help serve as mentors and advocates for a population that desperately needs that. Corey and his wife Anna have been working with CASA in Green Bay to help improve the lives of kids, and if you're interested, I highly recommend looking up your local CASA organization. The Ohio CASA website is here, and by contacting them you can find out if there are opportunities where you live to change the life of a child in need. The Linsleys are doing great work, and I encourage you to join them.
Also in the Dubcast, we talk about Ohio State men's basketball and their upcoming matchup with Purdue, and get into some Ask Us Anything (which you can do via Twitter or e-mail). Don't forget to rate and subscribe on iTunes!
0:00 Basketball keeps moseying along. Another comeback win, another Keita ass kicking, and another chance to reassert control of the Big Ten.
20:44 Aside from helping kids, Corey also gets into how football has changed in recent years, and what magic juice makes Ohio State produce so many great linemen.
35:05 And we wrap things up with Ask Us Anything, where we assemble an all-Ohio musical dream team. Never sleep on Devo.
