Noted Canadian and academic, Nathan Kalman-Lamb (@nkalamb) joins us to discuss the implications of the findings in his book Game Misconduct (https://fernwoodpublishing.ca/book/game-misconduct), being a fan of Vince Carter in Toronto, and the mechanisms creating unjust labor conditions in MiLB and the NCAA. Also, Happy One Year Birthday to us!
Clifton and Adam get the opportunity to spend some time with "Big Picture" Captain of NC FC, Austin da Luz(@austindaluz). Austin is the founder of Playing for Pride (https://www.playingforpride.org/), a foundation for promoting LGBT spaces in sports. We talk about how to build sport spaces welcoming to everyone, as well as the tremendous amount of great women athletes and burner soundcloud accounts!
Clifton finally gets to do his wrestling episode as the WWE travels to Saudi Arabia do the dirty work of selling Mohammad Bin Salman's shitty product. While Vince is doing his carnival barker impression of Thomas Friedman, we're talking with Bryan of Street Fight Radio (@murderbryan)about deciding where to draw the line with the things you love.
Clifton and Adam spend some time with Britni de la Cretaz, the phenomenal freelance journalist covering women's stories in baseball- both on and off the field. In telling her story of finding a place in baseball for herself, we uncover the importance of telling everyone's story, both so we don't lose the people history is trying to erase and so we know the people carving their own spot in sports today. Its an emotional one and also full of hope and fun (and also Pitbull). Enjoy!
C I N E M A This episode we tackle the frenetic, compelling, politically complicated Oliver Stone film, 'Any Given Sunday.' It's probably the best football movie of all time, which probably says more about football movies than Any Given Sunday -- but either way, we're watching a good movie for a change!
We got a bonus interview with Pro Ultimate player Shane of the Seattle Cascades! Shane talks about what its like being a pro athlete, the differences in how ultimate brings women into the sport, and the rewards of a life in sports have for community involvement.

We're back finally and have a rerecorded ep fresh for you! Amy comes on and Clifton finally has a coming out as we talk Serena, women's sports, and the intersections of race and gender leading to bullshit umpiring decisions.
The episode the universe didn't want you to hear! Despite recording issues before, during, and after we are proud to announce this episode brought to you by Friends of Coal and Monsanto! College basketball recruiting, shady NCAA sponsorship deals, and David Foster Wallace slander contained within!

We made it to 20 episodes! For the occasion, friend of the pod and NBA expert Josh (@duecedeuce) to talk eating veggies, Kawhi Leonard's exile to Canada, and using sports as military propaganda. This one has a vigorous hates and love section, so make sure to stick through to the end (aka sorry its 2 hours!)
International man of cycling mystery, Nic Magill hops on for a full episode to talk about cycling dark money, selling gray market narcotics in protein shakes, and we all make a pitch for Tinder to enter the pro cycling circuit.

Southpaws takes a break from sports for a bonus All Black edition. Clifton and special guest Martini Marcus delve into nuanced discussions within the Black community including: church, myths of Black women, homophobia and more!
Its another movie episode! The Southpaws boys head out to the megaplex and see the Pepsi joint, Uncle Drew. This episode is less of a sell on the movie itself, and more a sell on why we should be allowed to direct a sports comedy featuring a litany of NBA stars
This special episode comes with a suggested donation of 1-2 dollars for Clifton's moving fund. Jobs are dicking him around so Nic was generous enough to write up a guide and come talk to Adam about watching the upcoming Tour de France!

In a shocking turn of events, friend of the show Naeiri comes on to talk about what sports are like to people that aren't attracted to buying 15 dollar beers while watching men sweat around on each other. We talk about the necessary compromises that sports fans have to make and the reflection on ourselves we have to be willing to confront that can make sports a cultural force in utopia. Also there's a lot of talking about which soccer stars are most sexy.
Southpaws gets international and phones in Sarah Leach (@HiggsSearcher/@trulytrite) from London! Sarah has been in the stands for the CONIFA World Football Cup, an event organized for unrecognized, contested, or unaffiliated countries and regions to honor their soccer tradition. Note: Please forgive some audio issues involved with latency resulting from cross Atlantic Internet connections!
This week our friend Josh (@JayDoubleDeuce) comes on to talk about letting Lebron live and keeping Jordan in his place. Featuring some very in depth coverage of the Cavs and Lebron, as well as some now rancid Conference Finals predictions, we talk about why people hate Lebron, why the GOAT debate is unenjoyable basketball conversation, and how Jordan isn't as cool as you remember. Take off that Toon Squad jersey, forget about the Decision, and enjoy this weeks breakdown!
Adam graduated and finally came back from staycation to edit! In this ep the Southpaws talk the role of HCBU's historically in sports and culture. All sorts of great arguments to bring back to your Obama loving liberal friends are hashed out, and there's even an inspirational tale at the end!
