Chris Mosier is a hall-of-fame triathlete, and six-time member of Team USA, the first transgender man to represent the United States in international competition. Here he speaks to us about the right wing attacks on trans kids, especially the attacks on their access to organized sports, and why we should all take up this fight.
We also have “Choice Words” about New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s decision to refuse Donald Trump’s Medal of Honor. In addition, we have “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to Kyrie Irving for refusing to play in a pandemic and Olympic athlete Klete Keller for refusing to accept the results of a democracy and joining fascists in storming the US Capitol. All this and more on this week’s show!
