April 05, 2014 04:30 AM PDT
We induct the latest class of Hip-Hop legends into the Section 357 Show Hip-Hop Hall of Fame, and like the previous classes, we highlight a list of performers who left an indelible impact on the culture. The nominees included a few new names as well as some holdovers from previous ballots: 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Salt-n-Pepa, Dr. Dre, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z, and Hype Williams. Additionally, we honor our history and cast a nod to one of Hip-Hop's pioneering groups in our Veteran's Committee Selection.
This round's class was not without a bit of a shakeup: After much impassioned debate, complete with verbal body blows and contentious claims, the selection committee could only come to a unanimous decision on TWO nominees, rather than the customary four. This definitely made for some interesting deliberations, however this willingness to deviate from the norm only reaffirms our belief in the strength of our selection process.

February 05, 2014 09:48 AM PST
Our favorite fitness expert, Holly Lowe Jones, stops by to talk about the important issues surrounding Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) in sports and society. We’ve all been taught to “Just Say ‘No’ to Drugs”, but is it finally time to say, 'Yes'? The answer isn’t so clear-cut.
We cover a wide spectrum of issues, including legality, money, access to drugs, testing oversight, league cover-ups, regulatory agencies, morality, competition and health effects, bioengineering, and whether fans (that means you) really even care if their favorite athletes take certain drugs to enhance their performance. This is Sports Without Borders…
