Ron, Vanessa and Joel talk Colorado Rockies ridiculousness, summer movies and pop culture with fellow Denver podcaster and writer John Reidy, host of the South Stands Denver Fancast and Pop Autopsy.We discuss the recent CU-Denver study that show no correlation between teen marijuana use and legal dispensaries, the last-second cancellation of Pulse Music Festival, Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, the gentrification of 80205 (Five Points, Whittier, Cole, Clayton, Skyland & City Park), the controversial release of Mayor Hand Cock's right hand man Wayne McDonald, and Stapleton's draconian attack on sidewalk chalk.Joel explains the legend of Hopsquatch, the ancestral precursor to hopscotch, John gives us a club-level view into the mind of Colin Daniels; and we consider the possibility that The Notebook at Film on the Rocks is the best (and worst) outdoor movie of the summer.(Be sure to listen to John and his co-host, Colin Daniels, on Mile High Sports FM 93.7 and AM 1510 for the next two Thursdays, June 28 and July 5, 6:00-8:00 p.m., filling in for Renaud Notaro.)This week's musical break: "Grassy Grave" by Anthony Ruptak, from his new EP, "C'est La Vie"
