Introducing: Lost in Sports | The AND1 Mixtapes
From Religion of Sports and PRX, Lost in Sports is a new sports mystery podcast where host Ben Baskin takes on some of the biggest questions in sports and some you never thought to ask. In the second episode of the premiere season, Ben untangles the complicated origins of the AND1 Mixtapes. In 1999 a small apparel company named AND1 released a VHS tape of streetball highlights set to a hip hop soundtrack that quickly became a worldwide craze. AND1 was soon hosting games all over the world, and the players were international celebrities. But then, just as quickly as it rose, it all disappeared.
