Sports are as American as apple pie, yet even they have become a part of the political landscape. For decades, presidents have appeared at sporting events, and championship teams and gold medal winners have been invited to visit the White House. This wasn't always the case and you may be surprised to know that Richard Nixon was a pivotal figure in the nexus between American politics and sports. In this episode, we interview Nicholas Evan Sarantakes on his book, Fan in Chief: Richard Nixon and American Sports.
