Bob talks to Dave Zirin, host of SiriusXM’s weekly show “Edge of Sports” about scandals in college sports. The most recent controversy involves the University of North Carolina. A former academic advisor to athletes named Mary Willingham went public and said that some of football and basketball players at the university read between a 4th grade and 8th grade level, and a handful were functionally illiterate. She said one of the Tar Heels’ basketball players she tutored couldn’t read at all.
Then, Bob talks with NPR correspondent Margot Adler about her book Vampires Are Us: Understanding Our Love Affair with the Immortal Dark Side. [Broadcast Date: March 10, 2014]
