This week we speak to author Andrew Maraniss about his new book Games of Deception about the 1936 US Olympic Basketball team’s foray into the Hitler-hosted Berlin Olympics.

We have ‘Choice Words’ about the Nationals visit to the White House. We also have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to Mary Cain, the track athlete that came forward to speak in detail about her alleged abuse by a Nike coach, and Ryan Anderson and Kurt Suzuki, on the heels of their visit to the White House. All this and more on this week’s episode!
