In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and guest panelist John Swansburg talk about the amazing run of New York Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and why we’re so fascinated by the dancing, darting pitch. They’re also joined by Neena Chaudhry of the National Women’s Law Center to discuss the past and future of Title IX. Finally, they assess the Dream Team upon the 20th anniversary of “the greatest team ever assembled in the history of team sports.”
