Awesome podcast

Love your work - especially the two NBA rivalries. How about some other international ones like Celtics v Rangers, Arsenal v Tottenham, England v Australia (The Ashes)?
Thx

Feelin like a plastic bag ,

Engaging even for non-sports fans

I know next to nothing about sports (and even less about American sports culture) but Sports Wars is so engaging and informative that that doesn’t matter. Always excited to listen to the latest update.
