Ep #105: Naomi Osaka, mental health and gender equality in tennis The GIST of It

    • Sports

Today, Ellen and Steph chat about Naomi Osaka’s continued push for mental health as her US Open run begins, as well as the disparity in media coverage in one of the most gender equal sports. Then, we’re bringing back our WTF moment to give you an update on the Trevor Bauer situation in baseball. 


Warning before you listen: the WTF moment at the end of the episode deals with sexual abuse, so if you can’t listen, we’ll see you back here on Friday. Take care of yourself.


Today’s episode is sponsored by our friends at Scotiabank. While we’ll be tuning into the 2021 IIHF Women’s World Championship tonight, we’re going to miss watching all the competition. But, lucky for us, we can keep supporting the growth of women’s hockey with Scotiabank. Scotiabank is committed to opening the game to all players and promoting inclusion initiatives throughout the year. Check out their website scotiabankhockeyclub.com to see exciting ways to support women’s hockey long after the final whistle tonight.
