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


High School Football in the Shadow of the Nation's Capital 

This week we speak to Devon Ashby, author of the fascinating new book PG vs MoCo: A Memoir of High School Football in the Shadow of the Nation's Capital. Ashby goes into detail about the talent produced in the larger DMV area, why it is largely under discussed, and the important role that public schools have played in that development process.
We also have “Choice Words” about the fifth anniversary of the day Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the anthem. In addition, we have “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to CM Punk for his iconic return to wrestling in his native Chicago and all CM’s naysayers that don’t have any appreciation for fun and joy that professional wrestling brings to so many people. All this and more on this week’s show!
