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


Wrestling’s Radical Champion

"The Product" David Starr is a pro wrestler who is fighting to change the very economic foundation of his sport while also raising political critiques of Israel, corporate power, and Trump-era racism. We speak to the outspoken athlete this week.

We also have ‘Choice Words’ on about the Boston Red Sox' white delegation (“The White Sox”) to the White House. We also have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to Portland TrailBlazers guard Damian ‘Dame Dollar’ Lillard and Tiger Eldrick Woods, and a special Kaepernick Watch. All this and more on this week’s show!
