Toxic hockey culture strikes again & college basketball’s back, baby!
Content warning: Today’s episode contains mention of sexual assault.
Settle in for a quintessential The GIST of It episode. First up, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz sadly have to start with a hockey WTF — a second player filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Blackhawks alleging the team’s former video coach sexually assaulted him during the 2009-10 season. El and Steph dig into the horrific details, and the disturbing pattern in hockey culture.
Then for part two, it’s over to the hardwood for some good vibes. The new NCAA basketball season tipped off yesterday and El and Steph have all the storylines you need to know as the road to March Madness begins. Hoop yeah.
