More on: American football

The podcast episodes touch on various aspects of American football, particularly the National Football League (NFL), as a lens into American culture and society.

For example, Episode 209: Football delves into issues such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), discrimination and exploitation within the NFL, and the league's ties to the military-industrial complex.

Other episodes, like Notes App and Sports Rivalries, use college football rivalries to explore the human tendency to create 'outsiders' and the cruelty that can emerge, as well as the role of sports fandom in uniting and dividing people.

The episodes also cover lighter topics related to football, such as the bizarre incident of an NFL star losing his Super Bowl ring in chili.
