Summary

[Contains explicit content] The latest Audible Original series, GameBreaker with Keith Olbermann, brings listeners inside the experience of athletes who can teach us lessons far beyond sports. From the runner who rewired her brain's reaction to pain, to the Olympic swimmer whose refusal of rules revolutionised the sport, to the cyclist with the soap tattoo and the burning sense of what's right, the series looks at the personal sacrifice and societal pressures that impact athletes and challenge the way we think about sports.

As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add GameBreaker with Keith Olbermann to your library, you'll get all 10 episodes, each with a runtime of about 32 minutes.

A Binge Listen

Totally riveting. The stories are amazing, and the presentation of each one is so, so masterful. Totally worth your time; your jaw will drop, and you'll spend each episode on the edge of your seat. Each story is told through the perspective of several people who were involved-- family, friends, neighbors, coaches etc, etc-- so you really feel like you're getting the full breadth of it. A couple of the episodes are pretty heavy, but the stories they tell are so, so important.

It was just so good. I'll definitely be going back for a re-listen, A+++++

Top-notch storytelling

Gamebreaker with Keith Olbermann is a fantastic example of top-notch storytelling in the podcast format, which just happens to be about sports. The 10 episodes of the podcast's first season explore subjects as light-hearted as NHL enforcer John Scott and his once-joke, now-feel-good All-Star Game selection to one as serious as the Steubenville rape case, which is treated with an in-depth, three-episode examination. High-quality production and excellent narratives make the episodes a pleasure to listen to. The Gamebreaker staff have done a great job pulling from all over the sporting landscape, presenting stories that will be both familiar and unfamiliar to listeners. I sincerely hope that there is more to come from this promising program!
