This week we talk to NFL Network journalist Steve Wyche about the night he interviewed Colin Kaepernick after noticing that he was sitting during the national anthem. Wyche talks about the mechanics of that fateful day, and what it all means five years later.

We also have Choice Words about the Tokyo Paralympics and Japan’s struggle with coronavirus surrounding all of this. In addition, we have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to the same person—Sha’carri Richardson, respectively for her willingness to stand up to the haters after her performance in Eugene and the shade she threw at US track and field legend Allyson Felix. All this and more on this week’s show!
