Episode 18: Edgy Times with Dave Zirin

In this episode, Nathan is joined by Dave Zirin to examine recent events at the intersection of the pandemic, uprisings against white supremacy, and the world of sport in light of the recent history of Black athlete activism. Dave Zirin is sports editor at The Nation, host of The Edge of Sports podcast, and author of a mind boggling ten books on the politics of sport, including, with recent guest Michael Bennett, Things That Make White People Uncomfortable; What’s My Name, Fool? Sports and Resistance in the United States; Welcome to the Terrordome: The Pain, Politics, and Promise of Sports; Brazil’s Dance with the Devil: The World Cup, The Olympics, and the Fight for Democracy; and, most recently, Jim Brown: Last Man Standing.
The conversation reflects on what we can glean from developments in a range of sporting contexts and then turns to Dave's personal relationship to sport and his career and place in the sport media complex as a rare and uncompromising critical voice.
