The GIST of It

Ep #115: The NWSL’s institutional betrayal

October 5, 2021

How many wild things can happen in one week in the NWSL? Let us count the ways…

With another head coach out, a commissioner resigned, and three ongoing investigations into the botched handling of some truly terrible abuse allegations, the NWSL has had quite the week, so hosts Steph and Ellen are going through the timeline of events as they happened and then giving their own thoughts on all the awfulness. 

*Content warning: this episode mentions sexual abuse and harassment, so if you can’t listen today, just sit this one out, take a self-care day and we’ll see you back here on Thursday.
