In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Josh Levin and Stefan Fatsis are joined by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey for a conversation about his new basketball musical, Small Ball. ESPN’s Bill Barnwell also comes on the show to explain why NFL teams are so bad at evaluating quarterbacks, and Mike Schur, the creator of Parks and Recreation and The Good Place, explains his infatuation with Dan Le Batard, the host of a sports radio show that is only very occasionally about sports.


Here are links to some of the articles and other items mentioned on the show:
