This week we speak to Britni de la Cretaz and Lyndsey D’Arcangelo, authors of the new book Hail Mary: The Rise and Fall of the National Women’s Football League. This book is incredible and unearths an entire history that most of us were never familiar with.

We also have Choice Words about the new Netflix special, Colin in Black and White. We also got Just Stand Up and Sit Your Ass Down awards for, respectively, the perpetually underappreciated Dusty Baker and Roger Goodell/the Atlanta Anachronisms baseball team. Don’t miss another edition of Jake’s Takes as well. All this and more on this week’s show!
