Yes this review is a lot about me, but I’m glad the issues here being addressed, because they still haunt us, as a nation.
I was 12 years old when Len Bias died. “Tall for my age”, of course I played b-ball. Living in New England, my dad and I were avid Celtics fans, and were CRUSHED when Bias died.
My dad was a Reagan supporter - me, not so much. I have often used basketball as a bridge to explain social issues to my dad, and it has led him to make a lot of changes. I mean, I WORKED on him with this, and it still brings us together.
This podcast brings the issues of the 1980’s together with the popularization of basketball in ways that make sense. My dad will love it too. :)
