Talking Sports With Legendary New York Times Sports Columnist Robert Lipsyte

Robert Lipsyte was a long-time sports reporter and columnist for the New York Times.  He later served as the ombudsman for ESPN and is the author of more than 20 books.  One of Lipsyte's best-selling teen-age novels, "One Fat Summer," was recently made into a film with Donald Sutherland called "Measure of a Man."

We chat about Lipsyte's amazing career and some of the athletes he covered and got to know well, like Muhammad Ali, as well as his relationships with fellow sports journalists like Bob Costas and Howard Cosell.  We also dig into a wide variety of sports issues, from the new NIL era in college sports, to football and brain trauma, to pro sports involvement in China, to the increased attention given to the mental health of athletes in recent years.
