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.

Cool interviews with people who are better than me at things

Not knowing much about climbing, much of this was news to me and made all the more interesting by the storytelling itself. Looking forward to hearing the other stories in the trailer after episode one!

Excellent Synthesis of Sports and Philosophy

Gave the first episode a try and was transported into sports and philosophy. The stories were amazing and the production enhanced the stories. I’ve added WHY SPORTS MATTER to my podcast library, which is not large, and will anxiously await the next episode. Not sure how many such stories are out there, but I hope that this team will discover and share them.

Best Podcast Episode Ever

I drive over 50,000 miles a year and I have listened to hundreds of hours of podcasts. The episode on tribalism brought me to tears of appreciation. I have felt hopeless with the state of politics and division in our country. I was able to appreciate both sides of the Kaepernick protest. As a former Division I athlete with multiple final for appearances this episode made me Think about my love for sports in a much different way. It also gave me Hope. I forwarded it to my two favorite right wing Republican friends and said this is us guys. Listening and open to meeting somewhere in the middle.
