Scott Fujita, Gabe Kapler and Brendon Ayanbadejo get together for an all-out discussion.

This podcast contains explicit language that fits within the context of the discussion.

It’s a topic that has been talked about plenty, but never quite like this.  This week on “Unconventional Wisdom,” Scott Fujita, Brendon Ayanbadejo, and Gabe Kapler get together to get to the bottom of how sports and drugs really coexist. Just how prevalent is PED use in NFL and MLB locker rooms?  How do different athletes determine what’s “fair” in the world of modern medicine?  And where has the media missed the mark in their coverage of drug use in sports?

Beyond all the stories, the guys open up on the way in which PED use creates resentments among peers, and poses problems for professional sports moving forward.  It’s a conversation that the sports world has been grappling with since the dawn of the “steroid era,” but these three bring a fresh perspective to an issue where so many tend to jump to conclusions.  Three men, with three long careers, and three very different perspectives on how athletes should manage their bodies.  It all adds up to one very interesting conversation.
