In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca talk about the Steelers-Bengals catastrophe and other happenings on the NFL’s wild card weekend. They are also joined by Neil deMause of the website Field of Schemes to discuss the maneuvering by the St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, and Oakland Raiders to become the next pro football team (or teams) to play in Los Angeles. Finally, they assess the voting for the Baseball Hall of Fame, where Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza got elected and Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, and a lot of other people didn’t.
