Sports Media’s Dance With Misogyny

Sports Media’s Dance With Misogyny

Julie DiCaro joins the show to talk about her new book on misogyny in sports media.


This week we talk to the author of the new book, Sidelined: Sidelined: Sports, Culture, and Being a Woman in America, by Julie DiCaro. Julie talks about her process of writing the book, personally dealing with misogyny in sports media and why it’s important to talk about.

We also have Choice Words about the most important story in sports media you are not hearing about. In addition, we also have “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to, respectively, Jeremy Lin for his bringing awareness to the spike of anti-Asian hate crimes in the United States and the NCAA, who continues to be one of the biggest villains in all of sports. All this and more on this week’s show!
