I enjoyed this month’s program, though I was hoping you’d cover the culture of sports a little more, as you’ve covered the culture of tourism and of budget cutbacks. The yoga piece was informative and the dramatic reading on historical baseball was pretty funny as read by Mr. Bieri. I was also interested in the piece on drug testing, but the story seemed to embrace the moral outlook of its interview subjects.
