The coverage of the Semenya case was startlingly bad

The episode about the so called Semenya ruling violated all standards of good journalism. Only supporters of the iaaf were interviewed and their scientifically incorrect assertions about testosterone were allowed to stand unchallenged. Moreover, the issues of race, national origin and lgbt identity were ignored. No matter where you come down on this issue, this podcast was biased and condescending to the very real questions raised by Semenya and the experts who have demonstrated serious problems with the iaaf position.

Gold medalist, Kikkan Randall, discusses the “C” word!

Such insightful and meaningful questions, presented in a genuine and compassionate tone, easily connects to a listener’s own realities. Bravo!
