In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca talk about Kentucky’s undefeated run, NCAA tournament snubs, and the new ESPN documentary on college basketball’s greatest villain ever, Christian Laettner. They also discuss the ludicrous amount of player movement during the NFL’s free agency period, and Bruce Arthur joins the show to assess the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and how the franchise became a disaster on ice.
