For Tuesday’s edition of the Hang Up and Listen Slate Plus bonus segment, hosts Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca revisit the first-ever episode of Hang Up and Listen. Listen as they replay clips dating back to seven years ago—when the world of sports was entirely different.* What did they discuss on the first episode? How has the show changed since then? What sports advertisement still irks the hosts? And are the same athletes still relevant?
