Greetings Sports Fans and Athletic Supporters:
Come join us Under the Bleachers for Episode 10 - Don’t Let the Door Hit You. First, we want to acknowledge this small milestone - 10 Episodes is going to feel like a small accomplishment this time next year, but the first few weeks of anything are often the hardest so we want to celebrate hitting the 10 Episode mark and we want to thank everyone that has supported the show as it is getting off the ground.
This week it’s Gabe’s turn to pick the topics and he chose:
For Our Discussion of All Things Queer: Trouble at the Ellen Show;
For Our Discussion of All Things Sports: Hot Mics and Homophobes;
And, For Our Discussion of the Intersection of Sports and Queer: Gay Super Athlete Coree Auseem-Woltering.
After that you will get to hear Laura and Gabe’s interview with Team DC partner organization SMYAL.
