Episode 237: Tennis Power Plays with Lindsay Gibbs

December 3rd, 2019

NCR is delighted to welcome back Lindsay Gibbs, creator of Power Plays, for a wide-ranging discussion of sexism in sports, anchored (obviously in tennis).

Ben and Lindsay start with the massive symbolic importance of the mega millions on offer to the WTA Top 8 in Shenzhen, what that signals for women's sports, but also how that signal might be muddled by the relative lack of coverage or attendance at the event.

We also compare the WTA to the LPGA, talk about how athlete activism can be built, and much more.
