‘Long Gone Summer’ Director AJ Schnack on the Summer Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa Changed Baseball

We’re back early this week with a bonus podcast: It’s an interview with the director of ‘Long Gone Summer,’ the newest ESPN Films documentary on Mark McGwire's and Sammy Sosa’s battle for the single-season home run record in the summer of 1998. We ask AJ what made him want to make a film about this moment, the most difficult part of recounting this story, and why these two figures made that home run chase so compelling. Hosts: Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman Guest: AJ Schnack
