Three Questions with a Bears Fan, Episode IV: Quarantined with Sarah Scully of The Recount

| March 23rd, 2020

Sarah Scully and I have shared a home and cats for many years. And because I’m not supposed to have direct human contact with anyone else on the planet currently, she’s our guest this week! Is she an actual Bears fan? Well, yea. She kinda doesn’t have a choice.
