Anne puts down almost every NBA city on today’s show as she and I draft the franchises we’d like to own. We also discuss leaving mom behind at the gas station on a family vacation and the HBO show White Lotus Season 2, Episode 2. This episode was recorded on November 13, 2022.
Be sure to scroll down for images and video from the Torg family outing to see Linville Falls right after the remnants of Hurricane Nicole rolled through. After our visit to the falls, we stopped off at the quaint Old Hampton store for some live music and BBQ.

In order to check out the falls after Hurricane Nicole, we parked at the Linville Falls visitor center off of the Blue Ridge Parkway near mile marker 316. Check out this website for more details on how to visit the falls.
Here’s a list of the cast and characters from HBO’s White Lotus Season 2.
Coach David Kent divides his time working as the head basketball scout for Insider Exposure and also the Finest Basketball Club (FBC) Carolina Elite travel team. I met David when he started writing about and working with one of our players at Watauga High School in Boone, North Carolina: Kate Sears. Kate attended some Insider Exposure showcases and that led to her playing for a Carolina Elite Under Armour sponsored team. This past summer of 2022, I coached a Carolina Elite team that both of my daughters played for. As an assistant coach in the girls program at Watauga, I’ll travel with our team to compete in the Cherokee Invitational December 20-22, 2022. The event will be held at the Cherokee Resort and Convention Center. Coach Kent and I opened the conversation talking about some of his responsibilities with Carolina Elite and Insider Exposure.

Like me, both of my guests on today’s episode are lecturers in the Rhetoric and Composition program at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. At App State, we have what is called The Vertical Writing Curriculum, which is a series of four required writing courses for students. The first-year course is called RC 1000 Expository Writing and the second year course is called RC 2001 Writing Across the Curriculum. Each of my guests coordinates one of those required courses.
Ben Good coordinates the RC 1000 Expository Writing courses
