Sports podcasts

30 for 30

Even if you’re not a diehard sports fan, there is so much to love about 30 for 30. This is ESPN’s podcast and they sink a whole pile of resources into making it pretty special.

Typically, 30 for 30 coveries the stories in sports. It delves into human behavior and psychology. There are either meaty episodes of an hour plus that are standalone stories, or even several-part series covering a particular story.

Some of our favorite past 30 for 30s include: Bikram, a sometimes dark exploration of yoga in America; All In, the story of the early 2000s poker boom; The King of Crenshaw, the story of basketball player Nipsey Hussle’s life, death and legacy.

BBC 5 Live is an excellent place to go for sporting content, particularly for British-centric sports. The Players is just one of many great examples of podcasts that you just need to check out.
