Super grateful for this super good podcast

Usually when I write a review I like to quibble a bit about the content after glowing about the podcast in general. Not here. discussions of big sport stories-done. stories about individual athletes-yep. Want to hear discussions of women’s sports-they do that. Cutting edge trends-of course. Intersection between sports and society-you know they do. Get interesting guests with diverse points of view-“boom goes the dynamite”. And as an added bonus: they bring smarts and they bring healing helpings of the funny.

I ran my first marathon this year. So, with all this to recommend it, it is probably no surprised is that hang up and listen played a prominent role on my training. I will be grateful for the funny and thought provoking discussions that got me through some of those tough miles the summer. Thanks for being their.

Fast-forward is your friend here

I enjoy Stefan Fatsis and Mike Pesca, and the discussions are smart and funny, but...this is a Slate production. So, occasionally, you’re going to have to fast-forward through the pointless snark of Nick Greene.

First time reviewer...

...long time listener. Love the podcast! But why doesn’t Stefan’s bioblurb end with “...and the cult minor league baseball classic ‘Wild and Outside’?”

Speaking of sad middle aged men, I’m pretty sure I “liked” one of Stefan’s Tiger Tweets.
