Great podcast, bad audio

Go Woj, go!
Rachel Nichols does the white power symbol with her hand at the start of most games. It broke my heart the first time I saw it at the preseason Nets game. It is hard to watch her since then. Every time I see at the beginning of games and she gives her monologue, her right hand holds the mic and the left hand goes to the symbol. It is soul crushing to see. It devastated my children and I. That is horrible thing to do to children, to allow it to continue.
I hope that she goes and restarts somewhere else so she can rebuild the trust in her, to come back to do what she seemed liked she wanted to do at some point. It clearly has become something else to her. Let her do that something else away from our sons and daughters.
