I figured some of you guys might find this interesting. It's the story of BALCO, and in turn the origins of the Golden Snitch. Scroll down to the "BALCO" episodes, start with the earliest and work your way forward.

I need to remember to listen to this podcast.

Content overload has bogged me down lately. Too many things to listen to these days between Sirius, podcasts, audio books, and spotify.

The nice thing about American Scandal is the pacing of it is quick and the episodes are fairly short.

Right on, thanks man.

I just subscribed on my phone. I'm heading out on a decent length road trip this weekend, so I have some good windshield time coming up where I can catch up on some listening.

Which also reminds me, I've been wanting to get moving on another audio book. I think you were posting in the "books you're reading" thread....have you heard of Desert Solitaire? If I remember correctly, you are into non-fiction like I am. Anyway, this book is all about the Moab area, which is where I'm heading. Seems to be the appropriate time ;)

Just subscribed. I followed the BALCO stuff a bit because I am a baseball fan. This sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing!

It was funny how quickly the rumors of Peyton's use were snuffed. Naive people don't realize that it is completely normal for atheletes with multi-million dollar contracts/endorsements to use PED's. If a shite sport like bicycling is rampant with PEDs, with little (relatively) money at stake, why wouldn't they be juicin? Duh.

I’m finally working on listening to the AS Balco episodes. Interesting so far. Some of the reenactments are are meh, but overall I like it.

I give them credit for attempted production value. Has to be tough to voice act when it's just one guy, but their stories are great and for some reason I love the caper music. Their series' on the Exon Valdez and Iran Contra are exceptional.

As you mentioned earlier in the thread, I like the quick format. Made it through 3 episodes so far. The other seasons sound interesting too, will have to check those out.
