The best non-sports sports podcast

I'm as far as they come from a sports fan, but I love Harry's storytelling and the (*ahem*) narrative he's able to weave. From the (baseball) Giants leaving NYC to the actual karate within The Karate Kid, the host's dynamic interviews and genuine charm make this podcast a pleasure to listen to and a joy to see it waiting in my Unlistened Episodes.

Interesting Topics

Please figure out the music, the interludes and song selection are very odd and distracting, rather than complementing the stories. The volume is extremely unbalanced as well, as the music is much louder than the speech segments. This podcast is impossible to listen to in the car and I wouldn’t dare use headphones either.
