How the NCAA Gaslights America

How the NCAA Gaslights America

Sports economist Andy Schwarz joins the show to talk NCAA, the FBI case, and alternatives.


This week we speak to economist Andy Schwarz about his Deadspin article “The NCAA Is Gaslighting You.” Schwarz’s piece looks at case in Oakland as well as the ongoing FBI case. We also talk about the Historical Basketball League, a potential college athletic alternative to the NCAA.

We also have Choice Words about how sports could look in a different, more just world. Plus, we have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to a high-school football team in Maryland and Charles Johnson, principal owner of the San Francisco Giants, a brand-new Kaepernick Watch, and more!
