Antoine Fuqua on His New Ali Doc

This week we speak to the director of the Academy Award winning film Training Day, Antoine Fuqua, about his new HBO documentary, “What’s My Name?” about the life of Muhammad Ali, a film produced by LeBron James. 

We also have ‘Choice Words’ on about Donald Trump’s new Fed nominee, who uses sports to spew vile sexism. We also have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to DC area community folks that successfully organized to extend Coach Fofo’s stay, and San Francisco’s top draft pick Nick Bosa. All this and more on this week’s show!
