Hope Solo Wants Soccer Justice

Hope Solo Wants Soccer Justice

The legendary women’s soccer player joins the show to talk equal pay.


This week we speak to legendary goalkeeper Hope Solo about her 20-year career in USA Soccer and what she would do if she were in charge of the federation. We get into issues concerning equal pay and the pushback Hope says she got when she attempted to bring these issues to light.

We also have Choice Words about Kyrie Irving and his comments humanizing Palestinians. In addition, we also have a nice remembrance of all-time political athlete and Olympian Lee Evans after his recent passing. All this and more on this week’s show!
