Why Sports Matter
About the Podcast
Gotham Chopra, Tom Brady, and Michael Strahan bring you “Why Sports Matter”, the first 8-episode narrative series from Religion of Sports. Each week, a new story is built around a larger theme (i.e. mortality, tribalism, authenticity) and told through the first-hand voices of extraordinary people. Whether it’s exploring grief and healing after tragedy or understanding the mindset of athletes who willingly face death, we search for purpose and meaning — without shying away from nuance, or the salient political and social issues of our time.
