Podcast: Myth Busting With Bomani Jones

The business of college sports has come under fire in recent weeks. Bomani Jones, host of The Morning Jones, checks in with Homerism for a podcast to discuss the farcical notions of amateurism that undergird major college athletics, as well as the potential for reforming the system.

Bomani and I discuss:

  • the truth about the NCAA – and its similarities to the IMF;
  • why fans don't really want to see college athletes get paid;
  • who is profiting from the bizarre economics of college sports; and
  • what effective reform would require.
