– How has the notion of a “classic” album changed in the current single/mixtape culture?
– Is there money to be made in celebrating these anniversaries?

Segment 3:
– Is Fantasy Football stealing the thunder of the Madden video game?
– How has Madden changed its marketing approach? Does it make any sense?
– Can EA Sports realistically improve the Madden video game franchise?
– How important is gambling to this discussion?
