The SI Vault Podcast takes you through sports history with a dive into the archives of Sports Illustrated. Host Ted Keith speaks with legendary athletes as well as the writers who produced some of the most memorable pieces in the magazine’s 61-year history, and every week will include a reading of a classic SI story.
In this week's episode, host Ted Keith talks with SI senior writer Phil Taylor about his feature “Toy Story,” from the January 29, 1996 issue of Sports Illustrated chronicling the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan as they embarked on one of the greatest seasons in team sports history. Then, after talking Jordan stories, the comparisons to the Golden State Warriors and the team's current undefeated season and much more, Keith will bring the listeners back in time by reading Taylor's story in full.
