Here is a podcast on the reasons for sports subsidies and the impact of sports subsidies. Professor Lawrence White (George Mason University) interviews Brad Humphreys and Dennis Coates about their research. At times the discussion can be a little technical and it might be best suited for those with some background in economics. However, sports economists will enjoy the discussion. Both of these economists contribute to the blog thesportseconomist.com.
