Aron Bender is joined by Jim Linahan who is ... hilarious! Lanafans know what I'm talking about! I found Jim by way of the KTLA Weekend Morning News. I don't watch KTLA on Saturday and Sunday mornings, I watch Jim watch KTLA Saturday and Sunday mornings by way of his Instagram stories https://www.instagram.com/jimlanahan/. Jim's a podcast host (Jim Lanahan & Friends, linked below), a certified life coach, a producer and manager. He's also the caregiver for his mom who had a stroke in 2017. We talk about his relationship with his mom growing up, since he came out, and since her stroke, his abusive father, his diabetes, Jim's favorite Broadway and movie musicals, he ranks his top 3 iced coffees, and what he thinks should happen to anyone who orders a vanilla Frosty at Wendy's instead of the classic chocolate Frosty. Such a fun, insightful convo! Thanks, Jim!

Aron Bender talks with LZ Granderson of Sedano, LZ & Kap weekday afternoons 4-7 on ESPN LA 710, the LA Times Sports & Culture Columnist, and can be seen on ABC News and other platforms. We talk about the guilty verdicts in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the differences between justice and accountability, growing up in Detroit, how he manages trauma, struggling with his racial and sexual identity, impostor syndrome, the role God has played in his life even if LZ wasn’t listening, and an unexpected deep dive into the tennis world. I'm so grateful for this conversation. Thank you, LZ!
