This week we speak to Shireen Ahmed from the "Burn It All Down" podcast and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about a prospective law in France that would ban the wearing of the hijab or any headscarves on the field of play.

We also have “Choice Words” about the Brian Flores lawsuit accusing the NFL of systemic racism in their hiring practices. Plus, “Just Stand Up and “Just Sit Down” awards to Brian Flores for his incredible courage into taking this course of action and his NFL coaching colleagues who would rather sit on the sideline than speak up on this issue. All this and more on this week’s show!
