Sports gambling is a popular trend, and during Super Bowl season, the stakes are high.  But what could this common form of gambling do to our mental health and our social lives? What happens when it leads down a path of addiction? On the latest episode of the “Connect the Dots” podcast, we hear from Dr. Timothy Fong, the co-director of the UCLA Gambling Studies program, as well as sports radio pioneer (and former gambling addict) Craig Carton and law professor Marc Edelman to learn about the ins and outs of sports gambling and the work that’s being done to humanize those struggling with gambling addiction. This episode was written and produced by Tim Scheld and Dempsey Pillott; edited, mixed mastered by Mallory Somera; hosted by Mack Rosenberg.
