Ep #127: Sports and censorship in China The GIST of It

    • Sports

We're diving deep into why the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) is taking a stand on behalf of women’s tennis star Peng Shuai. The story involves issues of censorship in China as well as allegations of sexual assault, so please take care while listening. 


After discussing the news in the tennis world, we touch briefly on our thoughts regarding sports and the environment. The UN’s summit on climate change, COP26, has just come to an end, and we’re interested in the role sports plays in this changing world.
