Whether you love him or hate him or are somehow completely indifferent, you've probably spent at least some of the last 20 years thinking about Tom Brady. Brady has altered friendships, families and communities. He's changed the trajectory of careers and reputations, enabled fairy tale dreams to be both realized and dashed. 'Man In the Arena' is a new 10-part series from ESPN and Religion of Sports that looks at those two decades of Brady through the eyes of the fans and the haters, those in the arena and those outside. Host Gotham Chopra grapples with these big themes, while grounding the podcast in his personal relationship with Tom and his journey from a Brady fan to Tom's friend. This episode looks at how the NFL and Tom Brady are viewed by the “other” football—AKA soccer. Can American football ever speak the language of international sport, become truly global, expand its appeal across the pond... and even beyond? Or is there something about the game that makes it... too American? And what can football tell us about who we are as a country? Guests: Harry Kane, Roger Bennett (Men In Blazers), Brendan Hunt (co-creator Ted Lasso) Listen on Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/3FgQalz), Spotify (https://spoti.fi/3c6q4oB), or search “Man In the Arena" wherever you're listening now.
