sports news or discussion of sports news. More sports documentary, if you will.
I'd like to find a podcast which is about sports, but not
sports news, or discussion of recent sports news. What I might call sports documentary, for lack of a better term. Something that looks at sports stories, not necessarily recent, more in depth, and goes beyond just "on-the-field" accomplishments, perhaps with more about the athletes involved, wider societal impact, etc.
This was inspired by a recent rebroadcast
of an episode of the Freakonomics
podcast, in which one segment talks about Bo Jackson's decision not to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when he was drafted by them in 1986. I'm not much interested in day-to-day sports results, or the usual sports radio discussion of current events, but it occurred to me that that's the sort of sports story I'd like to hear more of.
Thinking about it a little more, I realized that what I'm looking for is more or less the podcast equivalent of ESPN's 30 for 30
Either a US-centric podcast or one with a worldwide focus, or anything in between, would be of interest to me. Length is not a major consideration: an episode might be five minutes, or it might be an hour.
So, does something like this exist?
