Today’s Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 178, originally published in October 2013.
Daniel Flynn is the former Executive Director of Accuracy in Academia and Editor of the weblog FlynnFiles. He’s the author of the new book, “The War on Football: Saving America’s Game.”
In this interview, Flynn responds to Malcolm Gladwell’s thesis that football should be banned because players have a greater risk of dying young. Flynn’s research leads him to believe that football is safer than skateboarding and theme parks.
Flynn also gives us some insight into the lawsuits in youth football and whether football or baseball is really America’s game.
The topics then switch gears to how low Obama’s approval ratings have gone down this summer. Flynn thinks the left hates America and actually has a conservative history.
