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 and Sammy Sosa’s battle for the single-season home run record in the summer of 1998. We ask director AJ Schnack 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.
