Regardless of whether or not you like Bill Simmons he has a very interesting discussion with one of the premier individuals studying brain trauma. It's a good listen.
I couldn't figure out how to link directly to the podcast but his home page which I have linked below has it currently (as of 3/10) listed third. It is a conversation with former wrestler and current PHD student Chris Nowinski.
Personally I think it is great Mitchell is doing this. The only way we are going to figure out more about this is if we start to monitor it. The podcast makes an excellent point. In Little League Baseball pitch counts are strictly monitored because there is a legitimate fear kids can destroy their arms/shoulders/elbows. Yet there is no account in any sport that monitors head hits in youths. We're more concerned about arm health than brain health?
