This week we speak to the co-author of the new book Futbolera: A History of Women and Sports in Latin America, Brenda Elsey. We talk about the development of soccer in Latin America among women, the challenges that came with that.

We also have a special ‘Choice Words’ update on the case of Braeden Bradforth, the freshman football player that died during an intensive workout. We also have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to Reggie Bush for speaking out about the new Alabama abortion ban and a plea that more athletes speak up on this issue. All this and more on this week’s show!
