A Binge Listen

Totally riveting. The stories are amazing, and the presentation of each one is so, so masterful. Totally worth your time; your jaw will drop, and you'll spend each episode on the edge of your seat. Each story is told through the perspective of several people who were involved-- family, friends, neighbors, coaches etc, etc-- so you really feel like you're getting the full breadth of it. A couple of the episodes are pretty heavy, but the stories they tell are so, so important.

It was just so good. I'll definitely be going back for a re-listen, A+++++

Top-notch storytelling

Gamebreaker with Keith Olbermann is a fantastic example of top-notch storytelling in the podcast format, which just happens to be about sports. The 10 episodes of the podcast's first season explore subjects as light-hearted as NHL enforcer John Scott and his once-joke, now-feel-good All-Star Game selection to one as serious as the Steubenville rape case, which is treated with an in-depth, three-episode examination. High-quality production and excellent narratives make the episodes a pleasure to listen to. The Gamebreaker staff have done a great job pulling from all over the sporting landscape, presenting stories that will be both familiar and unfamiliar to listeners. I sincerely hope that there is more to come from this promising program!
