Episode 108: On Racism in Canadian Sport with Ian Kennedy

On today’s episode, Derek is joined by Ian Kennedy, critical sports journalist and writer for The Hockey News and Yahoo Sports, and author of On Account of Darkness: Shining Light on Race and Sport (Tidewater Press). This wide-ranging discussion covers On Account of Darkness and what it can tell us about racism in sport through the lens of athlete’s experiences, Ian’s work as a critical sports journalist (and the corresponding pushback), and we’ll get his thoughts on abuse in Canadian sport and the growing calls for a judicial inquiry
