Gotham Chopra, Tom Brady, and Michael Strahan bring you “Why Sports Matter”, the first narrative series from Religion of Sports. Each week, a new story is built around a larger theme (i.e. mortality, tribalism, authenticity) and told through the first-hand voices of extraordinary people. Whether it's exploring grief and healing after tragedy or understanding the mindset of athletes who willingly face death, we search for purpose and meaning -- without shying away from nuance, or the salient political and social issues of our time.

Love

I don't follow sports but I couldn't stop listening to this. The stories are extraordinary and you leave each episode thinking a little differently. It sticks with you. Highly recommend

You Need to Hear Why Sport Matters

This podcast exemplifies the positive opportunities that sport can bring to the world. The interviews examine the complexities that sport is dealing with in society and how sport is truly making a difference. If you love inspiring and meaningful stories that are around sports you need to listen to this podcast. Well done to the WSM team.

Very relatable

I just listened to the first episode about mountain climbing and its dangers. I`m no mountain climber but as an athlete, i completely relate. It also helps the listener get a better understanding of some of the forces that drive them to play their sport regardless of the difficulties or the risks along the way.
