Athletes this year have had a tremendous impact on the election and on national conversations around equal pay, social and racial justice, and more. From the U.S. women's soccer team fighting for equal pay to LeBron James' More Than a Vote organization registering and turning people out to vote, there are so many inspiring athletes who are standing up and using their platforms for good. Among them is Atlanta Dream player Renee Montgomery, a WNBA champion who opted out of the 2020 season in the wake of the George Floyd murder to focus on social justice initiatives. Renee joins Pete to talk about the intersection between politics and sports, the expectation for athletes to stay quiet on social issues, and what happened when her team's co-owner publicly opposed the Black Lives Matter movement.
