This month, Bryan Lowder is away, so hosts Christina Cauterucci and Jules Gill-Peterson are joined by the podcast’s founding co-host Brandon Tensley to talk about some new representations of LGBTQ people involved in the wide world of sports. First, they debate whether the new Amazon Prime take on A League of Their Own, starring and co-created by Abbi Jacobson, might possibly be too queer. Then they discuss the making of Stay on Board: The Leo Baker Story, the new Netflix documentary about a transgender pro skateboarder, with Nicola Marsh, who directed the movie, along with Giovanni Reda, and executive producer Alex Schmider. Finally, they add some new items to the gay agenda.

Items discussed in the show:

Race Deconstructed, Brandon’s newsletter at CNN

A League of Their Own, on Amazon Prime

Stay on Board: The Leo Baker Story, on Netflix

Slate’s coverage of the Yummers debacle

The 2022 NLGJA Convention in Chicago
