On this week’s episode of Slate Money, we respond to listener suggestions for an all-sports edition. Host Felix Salmon chats with special guest Mina Kimes of ESPN The Magazine and co-hosts Cathy O'Neil of mathbabe.org and Jordan Weissmann of Slate about the prospect of paying college athletes, the economics of stadiums, and what NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell does to earn such a big salary. And everyone explains to Felix who is playing in the Superbowl this Sunday.
