Usually on the second Monday of the month I’d be joined by Evan Smith from Discover Newport, because Evan is on vacation this week, I had a full show to talk about whatever need to be talked about (or what I wanted to talk about).

The show started off with a conversation about locally made gear that the 2016 USA Olympic Athletes received, we quickly and abruptly changed course to chat about the controversy about the proposed new fire/rescue boat, finally we were joined by Nick Lima to chat about the end of the Newport Gulls 2016 season.
