Spit Balling is a quirky and eclectic sports podcast with a radical ethos. Redacted Magazine editors Mack Liederman and Jane Shin Agler consider the world around the games we play. Using multidisciplinary perspectives, they’ll talk about the artsy, academic and deeply human aspects of consuming sports.
In its first episode, Mack and Jane put on their political science hats to talk about how sports connects — and exploits — the entire globe. They talk about the NBA’s morally thorny relationship with China, the extractive impact of baseball barnstorming in the 20th century, and what Lonzo Ball may talk about on a first date.
