Why Sports Matter

A Society and Culture podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
Gotham Chopra, Tom Brady, and Michael Strahan bring you “Why Sports Matter”, the first narrative series from Religion of Sports. Each week, a new story is built around a larger theme (i.e. mortality, tribalism, authenticity) and told through the first-hand voices of extraordinary people. Whether it's exploring grief and healing after tragedy or understanding the mindset of athletes who willingly face death, we search for purpose and meaning -- without shying away from nuance, or the salient political and social issues of our time.
