There is a new and groundbreaking film about trans youth athletes called Changing the Game. This week on the Edge of Sports podcast, we speak to director Michael Barnett, and Alex Schmider, the film's producer. Everyone should check out the movie, it’s fantastic and inspiring.
We also have “Choice Words” about the looming backlash in the world of sports against the political athlete. In addition, we have “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to Naomi Osaka for her courageous stance in advocating for her mental health at the French Open and the NFL for their racist legal approach called race-norming, a practice they only recently decided to drop. All this and more on this week’s show!
