Ep #211: The rumor mill strikes again: Ime Udoka’s suspension and the Spanish women’s soccer standoff
September 27, 2022
On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz deep dive into two important stories where the initial reporting missed the mark. Starting with the NBA, El and Steph discuss the Boston Celtics’ season-long suspension of head coach Ime Udoka, specifically the media’s mishandling of this complicated situation.
Then the gals go international to discuss the Spanish women’s national soccer team’s ongoing standoff with their federation. While the federation tries to shift blame, the players are setting the record straight and pushing for a safe, fair training environment. As they should.
