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


When Women’s Soccer Started A Cultural Revolution

This week we speak to Rob Goldman, author of the new book, The Sisterhood: The 99ers and the Rise of U.S. Women's Soccer. This book looks at the US Women’s 1999 World Cup team, how they came together, personalities on the team, and their lasting impact on sport in the world.

We also have “Choice Words” about what’s happening in China with Peng Shuai, who has disappeared in the country after leveling an accusation against a powerful official in the country. We also got “Just Stand Up” and “Sit Your Ass Down” awards for the truly despicable people cheering on the Rittenhouse acquittal and the athletes that made it their mission to speak out about an Oklahoma death penalty case. Don’t miss another great edition of Jake’s Takes as well. All this and more on this week’s show!
