This week we speak to acclaimed sportswriters Jessica Luther and Kavitha Davidson about their new book Loving Sports When They Don't Love You Back: Dilemmas Of The Modern Fan. It’s a tremendous book that really speaks to the current moment in a myriad of ways.

We also have some ‘Choice Words’ about the NFL’s push to avoid a players’ strike and what that could mean for player power. In addition, we have a “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul for his incredible performance on the court as well as his role as president of NBPA and the Miami Heat for their incredibly tone deaf approach to fighting police violence and systemic injustice. All this and more on this week’s show!
