On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz are diving into a story we’ve covered extensively on the pod — the latest surrounding Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who is now facing 24 (and potentially soon to be 26) civil sexual misconduct lawsuits. El and Steph break down the most recent news and look ahead to how the NFL might respond.*
Then after the break, we’re returning to the sports story that dominated headlines last week — the ongoing feud between the PGA and the controversial LIV Golf tour. The U.S. Open tees off today and will feature golfers from both sides of the divide, meaning there’s about to be major drama on the links. Spicy.
*Content warning: Today’s episode does include mention of sexual assault. Please take care while listening.
