Ep #65: The Masters: the good, the bad and the ugly — 2021 Edition

April 7, 2021

This week co-hosts Ellen and Steph give “the gist” on everything you need to know about the Masters. From the good — like what makes the tournament so special and who’s favored to win — to the bad — like the current voting controversy in Georgia and the Masters’ ugly sexist and racist past — Ellen and Steph, in addition to transphobia in the NWHL, cover it all. Tune in, won’t you?

One last thing before you listen: It’s almost tee time for the Masters and we want you to get in on the action! We’ve partnered with our pals at FanDuel (again!) on a GISTer-exclusive fantasy contest. Play here.
