The Greatest

The Greatest

The Greatest is a podcast that takes every sports fan’s favorite pastime of discussing, debating, or even all out arguing, who or what are the best of anything relating to sports. From players, teams, games, seasons to even movies (It’s “White Men Can’t Jump” obvi), hosts Megan Gailey and C.J. Toledano, both die-hard sports fans and more importantly married to each other, will cover it all. It’s like if the hosts of Pardon The Interruption also had to raise children together.

For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
