Too Much Testosterone? The Discrimination Women Face in International Sports

This week, we speak to anthropologist and ethicist Katrina Karkazis about regulations passed down from the IAAF dealing with testosterone testing of women. We talk about how they came about, the lack of scientific process in their formulation, and it’s impact on women of color, predominantly in the Global South.

During Choice Words, we’ll look at how some ex NFL cheerleaders are fighting back against the leagues policy towards them. Our ‘Just Stand Up’ Award goes to a bunch of athletes taking a stand against bigotry and Donald Trump, and our ‘Sit Your Ass Down!’ award goes to an NBA fan base. As always, we've got a Kaepernick watch and more on this week's show!
