Dec 31, 2015, 02:57 PM

“Life moves pretty fast…if you don’t stop and look around once in a while…you could miss it.” Wise words from Ferris Bueller animate the year’s final episode, where we revisit our favorite Edge of Sports guests of 2015. You’ll hear from musicians Chuck D and John Legend, Orioles owner John Angelos, NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith, journalist Jeanne Marie Laskas and NBA Champion Samaki Walker, the first NBA player to ply his trade in Syria. Also, Dave delivers his film review of ‘Concussion’ and gives his inaugural “State of the Sports Union.” We have big plans for the new year, starting with a trip to LA and an interview with NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. --Please send your questions and interview topics to edgeofsports@slate.com or tweet Dave at http://twitter.com/edgeofsports. Thanks for listening, and have a safe & happy New Year.1:00 - Chuck D, 5:30 - John Legend, 13:40 - John Angelos, 19:30 - DeMaurice Smith, 22:30 - Jeanne Marie Laskas27:16 - Dave ‘Concussion’ review: http://www.thenation.com/article/why-the-movie-concussion-spells-trouble-for-the-nfl-and-moral-angst-for-the-rest-of-us/, 34:24 - State of the Sports Union, “Women Roar”: http://www.thenation.com/article/women-roar-the-story-of-the-year-at-the-intersection-of-sports-and-politics/39:50 - Samaki WalkerMusic: Stoopkid - Day Bow Bow https://soundcloud.com/stoopkidbeats.
