How the World of Sports Is Responding to the Murder of Canadian Indigenous Women

How the World of Sports Is Responding to the Murder of Canadian Indigenous Women

Tracie Leost joins the show to talk about indigenous rights and the power of sports.


This week we speak to Indigenous Canadian long-distance runner Tracie Leost about Rosalie Fish, the Washington state runner who wrote the initials MMIW for “missing and murdered indigenous women,” and ran with the red handprint on her face. We talk about the issue of what is being called a “Canadian genocide” against indigenous women.

We also have Choice Words about Robert Mueller and his penchant for protecting the powerful. We’ve got a Just Stand Up Award for Raptors guard Kyle Lowry and a Just Sit Down award for the obnoxious and entitled fan that shoved Lowry at the Finals. All this and more on this week’s show!
