I’m joined today by Will Leitch, columnist for MLB, contributing editor at NY Magazine, and writer at various impressive outlets around the internet, from the New York Times to Washington Post to NBC News. Will is also the founder of Deadspin.com, so we spend some time talking about that site’s sad end, family life in Corona times, whether or not Will is a true “punk rocker,” The Last Dance documentary, how rich people are ruining the internet, whether sports can actually come back in the near future, why the NFL matters a little more to the general economics of sport, and, of course, the fragility of memory. Check it out here, and some reference links are included below.
