Episode #236

On this week’s Moyers & Company, Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation — the magazine’s first sports editor in the publication's 148 year history — joins Bill Moyers to talk about the collision of sports and politics. As Zirin points out, "there's always so much happening in the world of sports, and there's always so many different ways in which sports, not just reflects our lives, but actually shapes our lives — shapes our understanding of things like racism, sexism, homophobia. It shapes our understanding of our country, of corporations and what's happening to our cities. In so many different ways, sports stories are stories of American life in the 21st century."
