About this Episode

1919 World Series losers, the Chicago White Sox, colloquially known today as the Black Sox, historically threw the series. This is their story. We try to puzzle out who was up to what, but as with any good conspiracy, we are left wondering who was truly at fault. We definitely feel for the players, and do some quick math on what was really at stake, and we talk the problematic nature of professional sports. It's fun!

Also - sorry about the car alarm - living in Oakland is an adventure!
