All Episodes

We may follow sports because we are interested in scores, stats and standings. But we care about sports because of the authentic human experience that lives at the heart of the games, teams and traditions we love. They are the reason why sports is the only true Reality TV. The drama is unscripted, the emotions genuine, the challenges real. And the more unexpected the story the better. In Season One of the Out Of Left Field Podcast, we will explore the many ways the sports world has been affected by the stoppage of play brought on by a virus. The games may have stopped for now, but the way we care about games and the people who play them remains uninterrupted and undiminished.
