Mike and the Mad Dog chronicles the rise and fall of the titular radio show, celebrating the New York sports scene that fostered Francesa and Russo’s success and pointedly exploring the conflicts, shortcomings, and controversies that led to the pairing’s demise after 19 years together on the air.

Former colleagues, writers, broadcasters, and sports heavyweights like Alex Rodriguez and Brian Cashman weigh in as part of this incredible story. You don’t have to be a sports fan to appreciate the value of this documentary – it is real and raw like so many things in our lives.

It is an honest and funny portrayal of the sports media at its very best.
