Must listen to episode 5 Tyson vs hollyfield

Ted Atlas was brilliant and the moderator let him talk. The most insightful informative interview ever in any sport. This should win awards for sports journalism.

Money!

Dan Rubenstein is awesome! Type of dude you want to just hangout with and talk sports, but without the fist to cuffs at the end. I digress.

I consider myself a sports fanatic, but then again, which sports fan doesn’t? Anyways, these guys have their stuff together, Wondery has a variety of podcast that are well made and very informative.

Sports Wars is no different, they have numerous sources and outlets, including autobiographies where these guys actually do their research.

Every episode will have you hooked. I’m not big on Tennis (I guess I’m not that big of a sports fanatic) but Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer had me hooked from beginning to end.

I’ve listened to most of these episodes numerous times, on the road or hanging out at home.

Give it a try. You will be hooked! Start with Season 1. Grandpa...I mean Brett Favre v. Aaron Rodgers.

Dan! You’re the Man!

Mediocre

The podcast is somewhat entertaining but the way things are presented could be improved. I can’t stand the “voice overs” used when people are having hypothetical conversations that with no proof have actually happened. I love Wondery but this one doesn’t hit the mark for me.
