Where have you gone, Mr Awesome? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you
—- Paul Simon, probably

Scott decides to podcast instead of following the US Election returns, and taps his good friend Laura Smith of Canada to assist. Our heroes discuss Gryffindor’s history-making win in Saratoga, the psychology of being Captain My Captain’s owner, more turf route races than Laura’s comfortable with, and much more.


Scott apologizes for not including Laura in the Nathan intro, offers to earn his MR AWESOME nickname given to him by his fans, not himself, no matter what Ashley and Nena say
Ashley and Nena are both on assignment/in the penalty box
