Part 1- Yesterday's Super Bowl featured - for the first time - black starting quarterbacks for both teams.   In honor of that,  we are rebroadcasting an interview with sportswriter Jason Reid talking about his book "Rise of the Black Quarterback: What It Means for America."  Reid was interviewed by NPR's Morning Edition a few days before the Super Bowl.   Part 2-  In light of Tom Brady's recent retirement announcement (his second). we replay a portion of a conversation with Casey Sherman, author of "12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady's Fight for Redemption."  The book chronicles Brady comeback after the so-called "Deflategate" controversy.
