Professor Maureen Weston Interviewed on "How Sports Betting Hit the Mainstream in America" -- New York Times Podcast
Professor Maureen A. Weston is interviewed in the New York Times podcast, The Daily, on "How Sports Betting Hit the Mainstream in America." The episode investigates the risks and rewards of the fastest expansion of legalized gambling in US history. Professor Weston provides background on the history of sports betting and the emergence of digital, online, and casino sports gambling in over 30 states since the US Supreme Court's 2018 decision in Murphy v. NCAA. The decision held that the Professional & Amateur Sports Act was unconstitutional, which freed states to authorize and tax sports gambling.
