Nike & the Modern Neoliberal University

Nov 12, 2018, 09:00 AM

This week we speak to Joshua Hunt, author of the new book University of Nike. He talks to us about the development of the multinational corporation, its relationship with the University of Oregon, and it’s connection to much of what we say today, including what is taking place at the University of Maryland. 

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the World Cup, the Olympics and Brazil’s recent elections. We got ‘Just Stand Up’ and Just Sit Down’ awards to Athletes For Impact and the Dallas Cowboys owner, as well as a special Kaepernick Watch and more!
