Trends Like These: Tony’s, Sex Study, E3, Orlando Reactions

Tracis Macelroy and Brent Black host a weekly chat about everything that's "trending" on the internet. This week they discuss the Tony's and reactions to the Orlando Mass Shooting.

These guys do a great job of informing and entertaining, while they work out their own feelings about things on the air. Subscribe in iTunes here.
