Bringing Home The Gold:
What's To Love And Hate About The Olympics
with
Dave Zirin

Dave Zarin, writes about the politics of the world's favorite pastime, sports. He's been named one of UTNE Readers "50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Our World". He's the winner of Sport in Society and Northeastern University School of Journalism's 2011 'Excellence in Sports Journalism' Award. Most recently he collaborated with Olympic icon Dr. John Carlos in writing the book, The John Carlos Story, he's published Bad Sports: How Owners are Ruining the Games We Love, A People's History of Sports in the United States, and Welcome to the Terrordome: The Pain, Politics, and Promise of Sports. Actually he's the best darn sports-writer in the United States. Zirin joins Building Bridges to scrape away at the gold surface and reveal some serious Olympic tarnish.
