CATEGORY: Society & Culture
Season One of The Edge is a six-part documentary podcast, presented by Cadence13 and Prologue Projects, following best-selling Astroball author Ben Reiter as he investigates the cheating scandal that tarnished the Houston Astros’ World Series 2017 win. Through original interviews with key figures in the scandal, Reiter gets to the bottom of what happened, who’s to blame, and why the scandal enraged the sports world more than any other in recent memory. He also answers the biggest question of all: What drove the most forward-thinking organization in the history of sports not just to the edge … but over it?
