As sport fans, we subject ourselves to anxiety and depression nearly every week. Why do we do it (especially when victory is more often a relief than a prolonged high)?
This episode explores sport and the reasons why we care so much about sports.
On the episode: Prof. Daniel Wann, Eric Simons, Daniel Perkowski, and Soner Yorgun.

Hear the controversy, definitions, and statistics that build to a perhaps different view of sport.
On the episode: Prof. Maxwell Mehlman, Eric Simons, and Dr. Gylton Da Matta.
In this remix, you’ll hear updated information, restructured content, and a new mix to explain how we parse voices and music in a noisy scene. It’s a new approach to re-podcasting older episodes.
