Description

The Intercollegiate podcast critically confronts the issues in college sports that actually matter. Each week, host Daniel Libit interviews experts and knowledgable subjects on the problems, shortcomings and contradictions of America's favorite government-subsidized cartel. Things we care about? Amateurism, corporatism, cronyism, athlete welfare, Title IX, governmental transparency, higher education, politics, criminal justice, and sports journalism. Things we don't care about? Wins and losses.
