Sports and politics have always been intertwined. Sports are where joy and freedom, competition and cooperation, collide, where human beings exceed our physical and psychological limitations, where racial, gender, and class hierarchies can be smashed in society-changing ways. But sports are also the arena where jingoistic nationalism is forged, where militarism and state violence are glorified, where oppressive norms about race, gender, class, and ability are upheld and fortified, where bodies are broken and dreams are shattered for the sake of profit and entertainment. No one has probed the intersection of sports and politics in the US more thoroughly and passionately than Dave Zirin, and TRNN is proud to announce the launch of an all new weekly YouTube show: EDGE OF SPORTS with Dave Zirin.
Starting June 7th, tune in every Wednesday at 7:00 PM ET for new episodes of EDGE OF SPORTS with Dave Zirin, premiering right here on the TRNN YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe to our channel, turn on notifications so you never miss a show, and get ready to bring the ruckus!
Studio Production / Post-Production: Thomas Hedges
Music by: Eze Jackson & Carlos Guillen
