Amazingly insightful sports podcast!

Well let me first say, wow! I am very impressed with the detailed history of some of sports’ unsung legends!
So far, 4 casts deep, I am just thrilled with the professionalism and thorough research of each story/stories (secret bonus: just about all of them have more than just one!!)
Every week I am counting down the days until the next one is released!
I love that it is a surprise every week as to who will be next...and he never fails! A pot pourri of sports luminaries and impacters
My favorite episode, is ALL OF THEM!! I just can’t decide!! It’s too bad they don’t let you rate more than 5 stars...this is totally a 7/5 star podcast!
