Where sports and politics collide, hosted by Nation magazine Sports Editor Dave Zirin


Howard Bryant & Full Dissidence

This week we talk to sportswriter Howard Bryant about his new book, Full Dissidence: Notes From an Uneven Playing Field. It is a searing look at race, power, and the real world beyond the sports world.

We have "Choice Words" about the Super Bowl and the spectacle that was. We got "Just Stand Up" and “Just Sit Down” awards to boxer Gary Russell Jr. for inspiring youth in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area, and Pete Rose, who’s still making a shameless play for Coopertown entry. All that and more on Edge of Sports!

This Year’s Super Bowl Was Blatantly Propagandistic
