BBB Podcast - Episode 153: RI Brew Fest Review, ESPN News, Super Bowl Preview, and More!

We formally kick off our Clubfoot Jim era by welcoming him to the show. Each of us picked a beer we found memorable from the Rhode Island Brew Fest last week - Jake reviews "Mike's Cream Ale" by Angle Tree Brewing Company (MA), James reviews "Green State Lager" from Zero Gravity (VT), and Will reviews Tiny Truck IPA by Ragged Island (RI). We break down some of the hottest business and pop culture news of the last few days: the Las Vegas mayor encouraging the Oakland A's to stay put instead of jumping ship, a man scaling the MSG Sphere for charitable causes, ESPN's proposal for a new mega-streaming service, and Taylor Swift's legal trouble with the UCF student that tracks her private jet. Just days before the Super Bowl, we fire off some best bets that you can place on the DraftKings Sportsbook, including a bunch of Taylor Swift-related plays.

When Megan Lanham was wrapping up her MBA at MIT, she was pulling double-duty as the Chief Executive Officer of a pharmaceutical recruiting company. Drowning in one of her dreaded data science courses, she couldn't help but think of a real-world example: how could AI and data play into sports betting? After meeting a data scientist at a bar, Rithmm was born - and just a few years later, it's gaining traction as an up-and-coming AI tool to help make smarter sports wagers. Megan joins the show to take us through her early learnings as a college basketball player and coach at the Division I level, and how she applied lessons in sports to running multiple companies. We discuss how Rithmm's AI models work, what data they use to make predictions, and their differentiation between other sports betting apps.
