In this week’s special live edition of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca talk about the latest developments in the Jonathan Martin/Richie Incognito imbroglio and whether the culture of hyper-masculine macho tough-guy warrior bullshit is to blame. They also discuss New York’s sports radio 66, WFAN and the state of sports talk in 2013. Finally, they welcome Bob Costas for a conversation about his broadcasting career, role as NBC’s Olympics host, and his recent Sunday Night Football commentaries on gun control and the not-so-awesome nickname of the Washington football team. Costas also answered an audience member’s question about whether he’d advise parents to let their sons play football.
