Last night’s show got a little more passionate then usual. My guest Mark Gunn? He was calm and rational. I was the one getting a little revved up. Gunn, coming from an earlier negotiating session that day, unfortunately did not have a strike settlement to announce but we did discuss the issues and where things are as of now. Viewers got to ask good questions and we showed snippets of clips that supported the writer’s point of view.

In case you want to see more of those clips they are here:
