Ep. 111 Ethan Strauss//The Victory Machine

Today our guest is Ethan Strauss, a basketball reporter for The Athletic and the author of The Victory Machine: The Making and Unmaking of the Warriors Dynasty. The book is a workplace drama about one of basketball’s greatest teams, but this episode is more than sports talk. We get into Ethan’s love of subculture narratives, being a reporter versus an author, and the “sadness of success”. This is an episode for both lovers of the game and the page.

The Stacks Book Club selection for May is The Giver by Lois Lowry, we will discuss the book with Sue Thomas on May 27th.
