The Rumor


Critic Rating

An unlikely conversation at a birthday party sends two friends on a madcap quest to find out if a salacious sports rumor is true. As their investigation circles the legacies of baseball Hall of Famer, Cal Ripken, Jr., and Hollywood legend, Kevin Costner, they find themselves re-examining their deepest-held beliefs about belonging, believing, and what makes a hero. While the truth proves more elusive than a well-thrown knuckleball, one thing is certain: their lives will never be the same.

"...if you’re looking for a fun and relatively low-stakes podcast adventure, one that’s propelled forward by occasionally convincing self-doubt of two lifelong sports fans, this is probably a good listen for you."
