Robert Kraft: A Different Perspective

This week we speak to Melissa Gira Grant, author of Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work about Robert Kraft’s arrest and the agendas that lurk behind charges of “human sex trafficking.”  

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about mental health in the NBA and we got ‘Just Stand Up’ awards for the U.S. women’s soccer team union and Kareem Abdul Jabbar as well as a ‘Just Sit Down’ award to NBA referees. All that and more on this week’s Edge of Sports Podcast!
