"Sports is Like Fire"- A Talk with Dave Zirin



Progressive sports writer Dave Zirin joins me on Our Social Landscape to hit on a few hot button topics in the sports world today. Zirin is the sports editor of The Nation magazine, author of 11 books on the politics and history of sport, and a frequent contributor to television and radio shows nationally. Included are discussions on the history of sport as a social construct, race, the Olympics, politics, and sports activism.
