Ep. 53 – Friday Night Lights Out (A study on concussions & CTE in the NFL)

The three traumatized brains tackle the subject of concussions in football.  The NFL is heading toward a tobacco-industry level denial to cover up the fact that even mild hits can cause brain damage.  Raj repetitively hits Jono with guilt trips for supporting the NFL.  Joe has decreased his NFL fandom, but he is a Browns fan, so no one can blame him.  Jono, a former high school superstar wide receiver of concussions, is an actual data point in this study (also available on iTunes).

The Paper: “Profile of Self-Reported Problems with Executive Functioning in College and Professional Football Players” (Seichepine et al., 2013).
