This week, DJ talks to a retiree from the Post-Dispatch, Fred Lindecke, who played a big roll in getting referendums passed requiring public votes to approve financing     Coalition Against Public Funding of Stadiums.

Lindecke appeared on Collateral Damage in 2015 and returns to discuss the aftermath of the Rams leaving town, the proposed soccer stadium, and the city funding upgrades to the Scottrade Center, where the Blues play.

Here's a rough breakdown of how the conversation went: 

 3:00-6:30 - How the referendums got passed and "A stupid judge's decision"

 6:30-15:00 - The Rams and the proposed soccer stadium

15:00-23:00 - Funding renovations to the Scottrade Center and its implications

23:00-25:00 - What's next and a timetable for pending lawsuits

25:00- end - Reflecting on the state of media and Fred's time at the Post

Tune-in to our follow-up to this conversation with Alderwoman Cara Spencer who is questioning the constitutionality of $67.5 million in public funds being used to pay for renovations to the Scottrade Center
