On the show today, the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone magazine, contributing editor Janet Reitman has a profile of the accused Boston bomber, Jahar Tsarnaev. But what’s been getting more attention than the article is the magazine’s decision to put Tsarnaev on the cover, and their choice of photo. And recently ESPN reporter Pedro Gomez made headlines when opted to ask interview questions to some players in Spanish. His decision, despite the fact that he translated the answer, became an issue with many baseball fans. We’ll talk to Gomez and Adrian Burgos Jr, professor of history at the University of Illinois and author of, "Playing America's Game: Baseball, Latinos, and the Color Line." And we'll find out what video gamers have in common with pro athletes and how to find the perfect peach.
