30 for 30 Podcasts

30 for 30 Podcasts, from ESPN Films and ESPN Audio, are original audio documentaries from the makers of the acclaimed 30 for 30 film series, featuring stories from the world of sports and beyond. The show offers captivating storytelling for sports fans and general interest listeners alike, going beyond the field to explore how sports, competition, athleticism and adventure affect our lives and our world. Individual documentaries have included stories about NBA activism, NFL video games, polar exploration, Olympic failure and more. Our two critically acclaimed serialized seasons have been devoted to the complicated world of Bikram yoga and the reckoning brought on the NBA by the leaked tape of racist remarks from former Los Angeles Clippers owner, Donald Sterling.

The series has been recognized by the Gracie Awards, the NYF International Radio Awards, the Webby Awards, and the RTDNA Kaleidoscope Awards, as well as included on numerous “best-of” lists from press outlets such as The Atlantic, Vulture, TIME and Entertainment Weekly. Episodes have also been featured on NPR, 99% Invisible, CBC, Slate Podcasts and elsewhere.
