The Politics of the 2018 World Cup

Jun 18, 08:00 AM

This week we speak to former US Olympic soccer player and the author of Power Games: A Political History of the Olympics, Jules Boykoff about the politics of the World Cup as well as the games themselves.

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about why NFL owners have decided to punish those who protest during the anthem. We also have a ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ award for Devante Smith-Pelley and Draymond Green respectively. All that and more!
