Sometimes the news stories that inspire my ODN segments can be a bit obscure. This week is one of those times. I was listening to NPR's "Planet Money" and they did a story on the takeover of Grupo Modelo (the maker of Corona beer) by Anheuser-Busch. Not long after I heard one of Revngeek's always-funny "Real Azerothian Heroes" segments. And soon after that I had my story idea.
Sometimes multiple news events combine into one ODN story idea. This week's story is a mashup of the Pope's resignation, the conspicuous absence of Sylvanas Windrunner from Pandaria, Marco Rubio's thirst during his reply to the State of the Union address, the Weather Channel naming winter storms, and our guild leader's devotion to "My Little Pony". Let me tell you, it was tough cutting it all down to 90 seconds!
