Score! Only A Game made the list. Esquire Magazine released its list of the top 15 best sports podcasts of 2019. Esquire editors wrote: "NPR's weekly sports magazine, Only A Game, delves into unknown narratives of sports history, ranging anywhere from anecdotes of athletes' personal lives to obscure histories like the creation of Pickleball. Think 30 for 30 meets This American Life, or The Moth if the open mic were at the ESPYs. You get the point. It's sports-but-make-it-NPR, vocal fry and all."
Click here for the full list. Listen to Only A Game on WBUR Saturdays at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and the podcast anytime on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
