Where sports and politics collide, hosted by Nation magazine Sports Editor Dave Zirin


Big-Time Sports in the Big Apple

This week, we speak to author Sean Deveney about his new book Fun City, which chronicles New York City in the 1960's -- an era of Broadway Joe Namath, the Amazin' Mets and some very interesting politics.Also, we have some choice words about the morality of watching professional football.  We've got a classroom-warming Just Stand Up Award for former NFL linebacker, Aaron Maybin, and USA Gymnastics...please Just Sit Down. As always, we give you a Kaepernick Watch and so much more!Sean Deveney, AuthorFollow on Twitter @SeanDeveney— | | | email us: | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del the Funky Homosapien | Welcome to New York City -Cam'ron | Orinoco Flow - Enya | Make the Money - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis | Man in the Box - Alice In Chains | Concrete Schoolyard - Jurassic 5 | Wake Me Up - Remy Ma Ft.
