Joe Nocera, long-time writer for the New York Times, discusses his book Indentured: The Inside Story of the Rebellions Against the NCAA. The book was sparked by a Times story he wrote in 2011, "Let's Start Paying the Players."

The program was recorded in April 2016 at the University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum.
