    The Sports Kiki Ep. 70: The freedom of being openly gay and working in sports

    The Sports Kiki Ep. 70: The freedom of being openly gay and working in sports

    Happy Saturday! On this week's show, Alex talks about an Outsports panel he moderated about being young and openly LGBTQ and working in sports. Every participant had a similar story: They were afraid coming out would harm their careers, but when they did, it was the best feeling ever.

    In addition, Alex talks about why this year's Pride Nights are especially festive, and why kink belongs at Pride. Follow Alex on Twitter @AlexReimer1.

    3SYO #78: The Cubs Are Wiser with Adam Mamawala

    3SYO #78: The Cubs Are Wiser with Adam Mamawala

    This was looking to be a rough week for the Chicago Cubs with seven games on the west coast against teams with the two best records in the league. But they weathered the storm and held their own thanks to discovering baseball's newest market inefficiency...
    Wisdom.
    Patrick Wisdom, to be precise. Today, I'm joined by friend of the pod Adam Mamawala for a crossover episode with the Away Games Podcast and we're talking about the kind of Wisdom that has lifted the Cubs through their most difficult stretch. Specifically: if you hit eight home runs in your first 15 games, you are very wise.
    We also break down Anthony Rizzo holding steady through a home run drought and still putting up very good production, Kris Bryant remembering that he's one of the best damn players in MLB, and Javy Báez being a genius even on days when he doesn't get a hit. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say it might be a good idea to lock up one or three of these guys to a long term deal and pay them what they're worth. Which is why I don't own the Cubs. Sigh.
    Stick around to the end as we also reflect on the Giants taking the field against the Cubs in rainbow Pride caps! It was a sensational look and a genuinely significant moment for LGBTQ representation on the field in MLB.

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.
