Ep. 326 Good Clothes: The New Fashion Icons of Sports
March 05, 2014 12:17 PM PST
These days it's hard to ignore that fashion has become an integral part of many athletes' brand appeal, with some stars generating as much conversation about their personal attire as their game performance. We chat with fashion expert Heather Zeller of AGlamSlam.com to get the latest on how many players have been able to establish themselves as credible fixtures in the fashion industry, how some leagues have capitalized on the popularity of sports-related fashion, and what trends to expect in the coming seasons at a post-game press conference near you.

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.

January 14, 2014 01:51 PM PST
Is making the Hall of Fame really all that it's cracked up to be? It depends on who you ask. In this episode we debate the merits of the Hall of Fame versus winning championships and making unheard of wealth, plus we break down how Hall of Fame voting can sometimes get in the way of truly rewarding the players that deserve to be there.

January 10, 2014 05:32 PM PST
From uncensored sports channels to helmet cameras, we discuss both the fan and league sides of the argument for more access to your favorite players and sports. Is the future of sports viewing already here? If it is, will it be coming to a screen near you anytime soon? It’s clear that the technology isn’t too far away, but does it make financial sense for a league to implement new changes? What would YOU be willing to pay for an all-access sports viewing experience?
We also dig deeper into the 24-hour online media inspired coverage of athletes and the “scandals” in their lives, something we’ve dubbed the “TMZ Effect”. How much do you want to know about athletes in the public eye? Beyond that, how much do you need to know? We know off-field drama can affect the field of play, but is there any way to change how the media goes about it? We discuss.
