On the Nov. 30 episode of WRIR's audio news digest, we talk about the Redskins / Bon Secours deal with Kim Gray of the Richmond School Board and City Councilman Bruce Tyler. Is it really a touchdown for the city? We also speak with Jacquie O'Connor and James Ricks of the Henley Street Theatre company about Richmond's vibrant theater scene and Henley's upcoming stage productions.
As if that weren't enough, we talk with Amazonia (and her handler Eva Roche), one of the competitors involved with RAWFL - Richmond Arm Wrestling for Ladies. Ringside announcer Harry Kollatz Jr. also joins us.
