NFL Player Says It Loud and Proud: ‘I Consider Myself a Berniecrat’

NFL Player Says It Loud and Proud: ‘I Consider Myself a Berniecrat’

Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson joins the show to talk politics, Bernie Sanders, and more.


This week we chop it up with LA Chargers running back Justin Jackson, who has become a bit of a lightning rod on social media in recent months. Jackson discusses media bias against progressive politics, militarism, the 2016 election, and why he supports Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

We have Choice Words about the Australian Open and the impact of Climate Change down under. We also have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to freedom fighter and Olympian John Carlos and the security office that issued an arrest to wide receiver Odell Beckham. Enjoy!

The Australian Open Is the Tip of a Melting Iceberg
