Episode 94: Pandemic Sport, Convoys, and the Anti-Trans Movement in Sports

In this episode, Johanna, Derek, and Nathan catch up on the last week of sports and politics. Of course, it isn't really your typical 'catch up' on the week of sports podcast. Tune in as we discuss the normalization of the pandemic and the role that sport plays in it, the so-called 'Freedom Convoy' in Canada, and the illogic of the anti-trans movement in sport (and the trend of seeking ally ship with right-wing news organizations).
