Description

Liars, cheaters, burglars, oh my! Enter the amusing, diabolical, and entertaining world of sports trickery and mayhem. Spencer Hall shares the absurd stories of stolen bats, pirated play calls, renegade cross-country road racers, and promising footballers who, it turns out, were never really footballers at all. A storytelling experience by SB Nation and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
