Film Buff Fran is back for another edition of Movie Club! On this episode we discuss "Foxcatcher," the 2014 film on the tragic story of wrestlers Dave and Mark Schultz, who coached and trained at John du Pont's Foxcatcher Farms. Steve Carell stars as du Pont, Channing Tatum plays Mark Schultz, and Mark Ruffalo plays Dave Schultz in this highly-nominated film. Did we think as highly of it?
We're on the shooting range this week with Rio 2016 Olympic gold medalist Ginny Thrasher. Ginny won gold in the 10m air rifle, and she also competes in three-position 50m small-bore rifle. Ginny talks with us about the physical and mental demands of shooting, the funky shooting jacket and shoes, and how she travels with her rifles. Plus, a look at Atlanta's football stadiums and lots of Tokyo 2020 news. Hope you're ready to Cheer-io!

Ginny also copes with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and as May is Mental Health Awareness Month, she tells us how OCD manifests for her and the work she does to better manage it.
