Episode 5: Food Insecurity and College Athletics

In this episode, Nathan goes solo and sits down with Dr. Christine Baker-Smith, the Managing Director and Director of Research at the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice in Philadelphia and member of the Department of Education at Temple University to discuss the pervasiveness of homelessness and food insecurity among undergraduate students in the United States, including college athletes. They take a close look at the results of a brand new report released in the last few days by Dr. Baker-Smith and her colleagues at the Hope Center entitled “Hungry to Win: A First Look at Food and Housing Insecurity Among Student-Athletes” and consider what the results mean for athletes such as college football players already stretched far too thin by the demands of school and their athletic work.
