Our Editor's Take

Crime in Sports is a show that explores fascinating true crime stories involving athletes. Despite the serious title and theme, Crime in Sports features two comedians as hosts. James Pietragallo and Jimmie Whisman both bring charm and hilarity to the podcast. The unique wit of the hosts makes the show compelling. No matter the crime, this podcast balances seriousness with a healthy dose of humor. The result is a hilarious yet informative show.

It has plenty of real, thorough research, as any worthwhile true crime show should. The Crime in Sports podcast also brings levity and laughter in quantity. This helps it get noticed in a saturated genre. Fans of sports and crime shows alike will find intrigue in the stories discussed. The topics range from discussions of NBA crime to the most dangerous men in the Mafia. This show provides lots of details.

Of course, the Crime in Sports podcast features high-profile stories. One episode examines former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez. The NFL superstar ended up in prison for murder and later committed suicide. But the program also talks about more obscure athletes. Like Ron Lyle. He did time for murder at a young age. Then he later became a professional boxer who fought Muhammad Ali for boxing's heavyweight title.
