Wednesday on “Closer Look with Rose Scott”:

  • 0:00: Rose gives a news brief about how it’s been over two decades since the World Cup was played on North American soil. The tournament will return to North American in 2026 with games hosted in Mexico, Canada and the United States. It’s the first time the World Cup will be hosted by three countries, and the majority of the matches will take place in the U.S. A conversation with Darren Eales, president of Atlanta United FC about the announcement.
  • 9:54: Last week, the contest for the Republican nomination for governor went beyond just the remaining two candidates, Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp. Former gubernatorial candidate Clay Tippins recorded a conversation he had with current candidate, and Lieutenant Governor, Casey Cagle. It was a conversation that took place last month following the primary election, which Tippins recorded on his iPhone. He then gave the audio to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and local TV station WSB. Rose Scott sits down with Tippins to talk about why he made the recording and what he hopes comes out of its release.
  • 29:42: An excerpt from Rose’s conversation with author, educator and minister Dr. Michael Eric Dyson on his latest book “What Truth Sounds Like: RFK, James Baldwin, And Our Unfinished Conversation About Race In America,” which was recorded at Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in front of a live audience.
  • 33:39: Father’s Day is this Sunday. We gather local dads for a conversation on parenting, hopes for their kids, and their journeys through fatherhood. It’s a roundtable discussion with Dan O’Donnel, Daniel Gura, Ridwan Ahmed, Brett Hillesheim, and Sherman Bruster.
