Excellent - worth your time.

This isn't the first time the Steroid Era and Home Run Chase have been dissected, but this is probably the most balanced review of the dynamics at play. The host presented a well-researched, professionally produced deep dive into the subject. She included dozens of interviews will ballplayers and officials, even the politicians that tried to hold baseball accountable before Congress. This is impressive work, and a "must listen" for anyone who followed McGwire during his 1998 season.

Awesome! Lived through this and it was great to be taken back to it and hear more.


ROS Presents is home to Religion of Sports’ most ambitious and engaging audio storytelling, existing at the intersection of sports and society.

We are now in our fourth season with Counterattack, which follows the journey of Sinead Farrelly from hometown soccer star to league whistleblower to comeback kid. Sinead’s experiences in professional soccer and her brave decision to speak out ignited the revolution taking place in professional women’s soccer today. She and her fellow players are continuing a long tradition of sisterhood in women’s soccer. They are changing the game and forging a new path forward—for themselves, for their league, and for the next generation of little girls with big soccer dreams.

Our first season, Crushed, presented a fresh take on legacy the home run race of ’98 and baseball’s steroid era.

Season 2, the award-winning series False Idol, examined the murder of Reeva Steenkamp and the myths surrounding her killer, Oscar Pistorius.

Season 3, Roughhousing, took listeners inside America’s locker rooms to explore hazing in high school sports today — why we do it, what it says about us, and whether change is possible.
