Ben is joined this week by Judy, a rugby player for the Colorado Grey Wolves in the WPL (http://wplrugby.org). They talk about Judy’s “origin story” and the ins and outs of the game of rugby. It’s a subject that Ben has very little knowledge of, but his eagerness to learn inspires Judy to teach him the basics. In the last portion of the show, Ben shares his passion for video games with Judy by showing her trailers for a number of sports games and asking her for feedback. Is there a console and game purchase in Judy’s future?
