Radical Sports

Radio Bandung floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee when it comes to sports talk. We explore the world of sports from a radical angle with Dave Zirin, author of What's My Name, Fool?: Sports and Resistance in the United States. Check out his website and weekly smackdown, the "Edge of Sports", http://www.edgeofsports.com/. From black power salutes in the '68 Olympics to NBA and MLB all-stars against the US war in Iraq, our discussion will run the gamut of cultural politics and corporate economics in and around the game. It's more than about who wins and loses, fun and games; sports is also about the big issues of our time: race, class, gender, and sexuality. Ali boomayey!
