I came across this show while driving to school and now listen to them every week. I’m not even that sports but their discussions are so interesting and eye opening that it can draw anyone in. Definitely recommend!
The Collision: Sports and Politics
Very rich and engaging discussions of vital, critical, current and contextual topics encompassing sports and politics. A sweet spot! Also highly recommend The Nation’s Edge of Sports with Dave Zirin. Great interviews!
I have been a fan of the show for a while now and was ecstatic over the announcement that it would be delivered in podcast form. I can't think of anyone else who could host this show about sport and politics (two of my favorite topics) with the same level of passion, humanity, humor and insight. Etan and Dave have excellent chemistry and complement each other very well given they both started their professional lives in two different areas of the sports world. The show always has great guests and topics whether it's sports, political/social issues or a political issue in a sports context. They really seem to love what they do as evidenced by Dave's energy which is infectious. I love the show. Keep up the great work, gentlemen.
Thanks for the interesting dialogue and opinions. Makes me think about things differently. Always important.
It's history. It's context. It's looking at today, tomorrow, and yesterday's sports through a clean and clear lens. It's considering the impact of events on the disenfranchised and marginalized. It's a perspective I appreciate and believe to be more important than all your ESPNs, FOXs, and network sports news outlets combined. Real, enlightened talk. The show covers sports issues with an entertaining edge. Check it out!
best sports/politics podcast out there
I love this podcast! Two of my favorites.
These guys are great together - coming at sports with a conscience and legit professional background - both as player (thomas) and broadcasters (both of em).
This podcast is what makes my metro ride more then transit. Love the energy and interviews.
