We talk with Rapinoe about her latest venture, as well as strolling down memory lane with her successes and failures on the pitch, a memory of watching her sister, Megan Rapinoe, play in the World Cup that brought a tear to her eye, as well as how Megan spilled the beans about Rachel being gay.

    3 Strikes, You're Out #28: To Baseball or Not To Baseball with Adam Sokol

    3 Strikes, You're Out #28: To Baseball or Not To Baseball with Adam Sokol

    Baseball might be on the path to restarting! But in the shadow of a worldwide pandemic, is this a good thing? I'm joined by comedian and Tiger fan Adam Sokol (NY Times) and we decide...maybe not yet. Owners and players are currently negotiating a payment plan that they'd kinda sorta already agreed on in March and that's never cool. Plus there's...you know...that pandemic that I mentioned two sentences ago. Stay with me here, people...
    Fortunately, there are still some fun baseball things to talk about like Miguel Cabrera's hitting genius and everlasting puffiness. And the Korea Baseball Organization. I positively bubble over with KBO love at the end of this one. Go Wyverns!

    Welcome back to LPFPod and thanks for your support. This week we are diving into the sport of lacrosse as I chat with two people from the LGBTQ+Ally lacrosse group, the Rainbow Rexes Lax. I spoke with Edmund Connolly and Tilly Powell. During out conversation we speak about how they both got involved in the sport, the founding of the Rainbow Rexes Lax group and where they want to go. We also talk about the very important campaign by 56 Dean Street and their campaign to reduce the rate of infection of HIV during this global pandemic. Love that the Rainbow Rexes took this campaign on and are talking about HIV.

Fun, informative and heartfelt

Interviews with interesting sports related individuals who also happen to be part of the LGBTQ+ community. Fun to hear the behind the scenes stories of their lives and to truly show we are all the same.
