To celebrate Ken Jennings' return to the Jeopardy stage, we're re-airing his episode, which happens to be one of our favorites! In 2004, Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings won 74 games in a row, making him the record holder for longest winning streak. In 2020 he slayed Jeopardy's Greatest of All Time tournament and he will be sharing Jeopardy hosting duties through the end of the year, alternating with past YLM guest Mayim Bialik. In this episode, Ken shares how he became obsessed with trivia, Alex Trebek's shockingly sugary breakfast choice and, a huge barbecue lover, tells us why he doesn't want to be known as a "Barbecue guy." He also clues us in to the regional food of Utah: Jell-O! We learn the history of Jell-O with Lynne Belluscio, executive director of the Jell-O Gallery in LeRoy, New York.

Jessica from season one of Love is Blind is engaged to her hot LA doctor bf. Jeopardy is still in search of a full time host to follow Alex Trebek, but Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialek will finish out the year as hosts. The Emmys weren't fully restricted to Zoom this year, but Seth Rogen's presentation of an award made it seem like they weren't super COVID safe. Ted Lasso took home a lot of the comedy category of the Emmy awards. Vee went “Yikes!” to the full terrifying story of Gabby Petito and her death. She also went yikes to the fact that a young white woman's story tends to get more press than that of the many missing women of color and indigineous nations. This week on the beach was decently boring except for the tropical storm that led the lovebirds to the hotel for a few days.

Welcome to the Bill Bradley Collective, where this week we present yet another of our award-winning Dollop-style in-season bonus installments, as Ed unveils the remarkably strange but true story of one Morris “Moe” Berg. Located directly at the three-way intersection of baseball mediocrity, higher education and international espionage, Ed's chronology of Berg's life and times render his Collective brethren floored well before even the halfway mark. Join us for the narrative of baseball's fourth greatest non-Gentile catcher, an adult life that commences with a pair of Ivy League degrees, followed by a professional baseball career that though otherwise feeble somehow spans nearly two decades across the AL, NL and Japan, before reaching his life's apex mountain in “retirement,” both as the Ken Jennings of the radio age and as an agent of the CIA-predecessor Office of Strategic Services involved in increasingly consequential and delicate situations in Eastern Europe. Labeled “difficult” by direct kin, fluent in seven languages but unable to hit in any of them, for a time confused with a celebrity comedic ignoramus sharing the same forename, and later portrayed on film by Phoebe Buffay's husband, Moe Berg's life was one of achievement academically, athletically and in service to his country, while also providing we, the Bill Bradley Collective, with a great bit of posthumous humor this week. Berg homered six (6!) times over the span of a fifteen-year MLB career, and yet it takes Ed a mere forty minutes to hit Moe's story out of the park.

If you visit any toy store in your local mall today, you'll find an endless variety of games to play. Some of them are timeless classics like Monopoly, Parcheesi, Sorry, Yahtzee, and Uno. Others are newer, but no less popular. And games are making a comeback. Record sales are being reported and game manufacturers are saying Family Game Night is a new trend in our culture, perhaps motivated by the isolation of COVID quarantining. Now, when I was a kid, we played a lot of games, too, but most of them were outside and they didn't cost a dime. Games like Run-Sheep-Run, I Spy, Tag, and Mother-May-I? We'd entertain ourselves for hours with the joy and innocence of simple games played with our friends. To be honest, I probably wouldn't play most of these games today. Let's just say they're for a younger crowd. But I do enjoy some games. I'm just careful what games I choose to play and who I play them with. Like, I definitely wouldn't play Trivial Pursuit with Ken Jennings! Now, whether they realize it or not, many people are playing games with God every day. They live their life just like it's some sort of fun activity, with no consequence for their bad choices or ultimate penalty for breaking the rules. They play the game the way they want to play it, smugly thinking that the dice and cards are always stacked in their favor, and nothing can stand in their way to victory. Well, that's what I'll be talking about on this podcast. I'll be addressing the topic of people and the games they play as I look at: Playing Hide-and-Seek with God. Stay with me, because that's coming up on today's episode of Living Lite Today.
