Hello! Welcome to Season 2 of Field Study, a podcast about sports, science and technology by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I’m your host and producer, Matt Moret.
Last season, we shared stories about how science has changed the way fans and teams look at the world of professional sports.
Well, we’re back with a few more. But this time, we’ve placed an even bigger focus on how science has changed the lives of players themselves.
How has public understanding of injuries changed? What are the ethical questions behind the analytics dominating every modern telecast?
This season, you’ll hear from a brand new group of reporters from across the Post-Gazette newsroom. Joining me will be enterprise reporter Bill Brink, technology reporter Lauren Rosenblatt, sports reporter Steve Rotstein, and digital producer Mackenzie Rodrigues.
The second season of Field Study starts rolling out next week, so make sure you subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts. And just like last time, you can find full transcripts through the link in our show notes.
