Liberty, Justice and Ball Podcast


Liberty, Justice and Ball explores the intersection of basketball and social justice. 

Hosted by a unique team from Springfield College, where basketball was invented, Kris Rhim and Marty Dobrow bring their varying perspectives as a 21-year-old Black student and 60-year-old white professor respectively. They share a passion for hoops and social justice and will be exploring the experiences and viewpoints of Hall of Famers tied to both topics.
