The Dream Tapes

iHeartRadio and Diversion Podcasts launch "The Dream Team Tapes," a new podcast featuring audio from players of the greatest sports team ever assembled, the 1992 U.S. Men's Olympic Basketball Team. The series will debut with the first two episodes which feature Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and Karl Malone on May 18. The podcast is hosted by longtime Sports Illustrated writer and author Jack McCallum, who covered the "Dream Team" at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.

"We're overjoyed to debut Diversion Podcasts with a show as engaging and well-timed as "The Dream Team Tapes," with writing talent as reputable as Jack McCallum, and with a partner as strong as iHeartRadio," said Diversion Podcasts CEO Scott Waxman. "It's an incredible way to kick off our new network."

"iHeart is thrilled to partner with Diversion Podcasts on a series that will offer audiences an opportunity to listen to never-before-heard audio from the greatest NBA players of all time, with riveting stories told from the perspective of renowned sportswriter and author Jack McCallum, who was there with them through every step of their journey to Olympic gold," added iHeartPodcast Network Lead Executive Producer of Sports Sean Titone.

McCallum is the author of 10 books, including the New York Times bestseller "Dream Team." He also is a recipient of the Curt Gowdy Media Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame for excellence in basketball writing.

"I captured this incredible audio material with the guys from The Dream Team," said McCallum. "Diversion worked with me to create what I hope will be a really entertaining podcast about a great time in hoops. And, with iHeartRadio, we now have the perfect partner to reach fans young and old."
