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


From Auschwitz To The NBA

This week we speak to Dan Grunfeld, author of the new book By the Grace of the Game: The Holocaust, a Basketball Legacy, and an Unprecedented American Dream. He talks about his family’s journey from Auschwitz to the NBA.

We have Choice Words about the GOP’s selective interest in women’s sports. We're giving Just Stand Up awards to the great Cinderella stories taking place during both the men and women’s tournament and Just Sit Down awards to the NCAA for being its awful, normal self. All this and more on this week’s show!
