Houston's Field of Schemes

This week we speak to Neil deMause, co-author of the book Field of Schemes about the toll that publicly funded stadiums has taken on the infrastructure of Houston, & Hurricane Harvey's manifestation of the problem. De Mause is the preeminent scholar in the country on the politics of stadium construction. We also have choice words about the Michael Bennett police brutality situation in Las Vegas, a serious clap back at the new round of anonymous Kaepernick haters, and much more.Neil deMausehttps://www.amazon.com/Field-Schemes-Stadium-Swindle-Private/dp/1567511384Twitter:https://twitter.com/neildemauseZirin, Stand With Michael Bennett Even If It's Uncomfortablehttps://www.thenation.com/article/stand-with-michael-bennett-even-if-its-uncomfortable/—http://www.edgeofsportspodcast.com/ | http://twitter.com/EdgeOfSportsPod | http://fb.com/edgeofsportspod | https://www.instagram.com/edgeofsportspod | email us: edgeofsports@gmail.com | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del The Funky Homosapien | Bodak Yellow - Cardi B | Slippery - Migos | Ghetto Symphony - A$AP Rocky | Renegade - Jay-Z Feat.
