In this rather searing episode, Derek and Nathan sit down with former San Francisco 49er and Wisconsin Badger Chris Borland to discuss the football industrial complex. Chris explains why he decided to retire at the very beginning of an exceptionally promising NFL career, how the Care Consortium is profoundly understating the danger of football in concussion research, and what makes college football so fundamentally exploitative.
You can find Chris' full testimony before Congress on the prevalence of concussions in college football here. You can also follow Chris on Twitter to keep up with everything he is working on!
