    Super Bowl 56

    It's our annual Super Bowl episode - but this one comes in stages. The day after John and our show's producer recorded it, former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores filed a lawsuit against the NFL alleging racial discrimination, sham interviews for coaching positions, and more. We recorded a second time to include that in the show, plus we also feature part of an earlier Going Deep episode where John and Marcia explained why coaching in the pros is far more difficult than in college.

    Concussions In Contact Sports: A Solvable Problem

    Concussions In Contact Sports: A Solvable Problem

    In this episode of Going Deep, our hosts go back to an issue they've spent much of their recent years discussing - concussions in contact sports. They catch up with two engineers - Eric Nauman and Tom Talavadge - whom they first met while John was coaching at Purdue University. They've talked with Eric and Tom before about their work on microconcussions, and they get the latest on what the pair have discovered in their research, and how it can be applied to sports like football.

Good, thought provoking content

Very good discussion around some important issues in the world of sports that tend to be an eye-opening look behind the curtain. I Appreciate their discussions and the guests they bring to the show.

Show for curious individuals; don’t need to be sports fans

I just listened to an episode of the show on Blue Ridge public radio. I am not a sports fan in any sense of the word, but I am curious on a variety of topics that involve athletes. Especially things like how college athletes have to pay for free and the damage repeated concussions can do to football players. The shopped talk about a variety of topics with authenticity, heart, and years of experience. I am mediately subscribe to this podcast after hearing the interview, and I can’t wait to listen to all of the past and future episodes. Keep up the good work, Shoops!
