Ep #242: Harvard women’s hockey abuse & Women’s World Cup sportswashing
Happy Groundhog Day!
Content warning: Today’s episode contains brief mention of racism and verbal and emotional abuse.
No, you’re not reliving the same day again — co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz are back with yet another WTF-filled episode of The GIST of It. The first relates to a topic oft-discussed on the pod: toxic hockey culture. Longtime Harvard women’s coach Katey Stone is facing allegations of abusive behavior and racist language.
The second pertains to another hot button topic: sportswashing. Saudi Arabia will reportedly sponsor July’s Women’s World Cup leaving teams and fans alike outraged given the nation’s appalling human rights record.
Thanks for tuning in and getting fired up with us!
