So good!

Have been really, really in to both the the football and the tennis stories--and I don't generally have any interest in tennis. Engaging, satisfying listening.

Great storytelling!

I love these Wondery podcasts. Nice rhythm, perfect for my commute and I love his sports rivalry series. Would you consider doing something broader like the Yankees v. Red Sox or Florida State v. Florida? Would love to know how these types of all-time perpetual rivalries got started? Keep it up!!
