    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.   America's collective adoration of the underdog means that people love to hate Tom Brady. In the world of sports, hatred is inevitable, so why are haters always gonna hate? And in the context of sports, could hate be a positive thing? What might it take to change one fan's mind?    Listen on Apple Podcasts (, Spotify (, or search 'Man In the Arena' wherever you're listening now.
