PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — What’s good people! So, somehow, we made it to 50 Episodes — FIDDY! — of the People’s Podcast. But this one is going in a completely different direction from the rest of them.
For the first 49 shows, most of them have had some kind of intro or compelling hook or fun tag. This one’s a stone cold commentary that goes back to my roots. It’s threefold. I’m defending my friend (Jemele Hill). I’m defending my chosen profession (journalism) and I’m defending my people from the silly scourge of “#StickToSports.” The idea that “sports is an escape from everyday life” is a laughable lie. The thought that we have to “keep politics out of sports” rings hollow when most of the major sports stories of the last 100 years have been “political” in nature — Jackie Robinson, Muhammad Ali, John Carlos & Tommie Smith, The 1972 Munich Olympic massacre, The 1980 Miracle On Ice, etc. — and have shaped the face of sport around the world. To say otherwise is intellectually dishonest and disingenuous.
So here’s Episode 50. A commentary that refuses to #StickToSports.
A New Episode drops every week — usually on Thursday or Friday.
Coming up on Episode No. 50 of JSC Radio:
- I express my support for Jemele Hill.
- We call out the fallacy of “Stick To Sports” and look at the history of “politics” in sports.
- How “Freedom of Speech” goes both ways in terms of political discourse.
- How journalists in 2017 are adjusting to the new era of attempted censorship.
- I thank all of you for supporting these first 50 shows.
