“This is Your Brain on Sports” is a weekly podcast from Sports Illustrated in which SI executive editor Jon Wertheim and Tufts University psychology professor Sam Sommers explore the intersection of sports and human nature—what the world of sports has to teach us about who we are, what we care about and the forces that shape our behavior.

On this week’s episode, Sommers and Wertheim recap all of the year’s Brain on Sports episodes and reflect on some of their top guests and interviews. Listeners will hear from athletes, economists, psychologists and more, including Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne, Holly Holm after her win over Ronda Rousey, superman Cameron Hughes, Dan Ariely, former NFL player Tony Gonzalez and more.
