THE BIG TIME How the 1970s Transformed Sports in America

by | Read by Sean Runnette

Contemporary Culture • 17.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Sean Runnette is comfortable with the athletes' names, the jargon, and the general tone of this audiobook. He's a good fit for MacCambridge's conversational style. The 1970s were a decade of fundamental change in American society, and nowhere was this more apparent than in the world of professional sports. At just under 18 hours, THE BIG TIME is sprawling--some long sections could have been safely excised--and Sean Runnette's sleepy pace makes it seem longer. Through the stories of key figures like Billie Jean King, Muhammad Ali, and Hank Aaron, listeners of a certain vintage will occasionally be shocked by how different sports culture was just 50 years ago.
