This week we are honored to speak to gold medalist at the 1964 and 1968 Olympics and the first-ever back-to-back gold medalist in the 100 meters, athlete and lifelong activist Wyomia Tyus. Tyus talks about her experiences in the Olympics and the fight for freedom.

We have Choice Words about the firing of Canadian hockey commentator and bigot Don Cherry. We also have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to Megan Rapinoe for an awesome speech, and the NFL, who are up to their shenanigans as it pertains to Colin Kaepernick. All this and more on this week’s episode!
