Injustice on the Ice (the 2002 Olympics Figure Skating Scandal)
In our inaugural episode, Rachna tells an icy tale of Olympic deception. When the Russians beat the favored Canadians in the Pairs Figure Skating competition at the 2002 Olympics, one of the judge’s judgment seems less than judicious. Will there be justice? Pour yourself a glass of chardonnay, cuddle up with your favorite mobster, and take a listen.

Marathon Madness (The Rosie Ruiz Story)
About The Show
Fox Sports host and comic Rachel Bonnetta (“Lock It In”, “@Buzzer”) and comedy writer Rachna Fruchbom (“Fresh Off the Boat”, “Parks and Recreation”) are here to share their love for two things: sports and DRAMA. Sure, they obsessively root for Cleveland (the Browns and the Cavaliers, respectively), but they get even more excited by those crazy moments in sports that become almost legendary. We all know the sensationalistic scandals about cheating, gambling and sex, but Rachel and Rachna want to discover the humanity behind the headlines. That’s why they started Hall of Shame -- every week Rachel and Rachna will take each other through some of the biggest scandals in sports, from the thrill of Dock Ellis’ acid fueled no-hitter on acid to the agony of Rosie Ruiz’s fake Boston Marathon win. With humor and a healthy dose of perspective, they get to the bottom of what exactly went down, why these stories matter, and how they’re still relevant today. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel more invested in sports than you ever thought possible.
