Edge of SportsDave Zirin, The Nation’s first sports editor in its 152+ years of publication and host of The Nation’s ‘Edge of Sports’ podcast, is available for select interviews from Silver Spring, MD, and via Skype:

The Fragile, Toxic Masculinity of Donald Trump: These athletes are doing a lot more than sitting or kneeling or raising a fist during the anthem,” says Zirin. “They are offering up an alternative model for unity, justice, and even manhood. They are showing that what makes an adult is whom you can help, not whom you can cuss, and certainly not whom you can destroy for shameless and divisive political gain.”

His comments about NFL players reveal just how divisive and narcissistic the president really is.


Dave Zirin, The Nation’s sports editor, is the author of eight books on the politics of sports, most recently, Brazil’s Dance with the Devil: The World Cup, The Olympics, and the Fight for Democracy.

Named one of UTNE Reader’s “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Our World,” Zirin is a frequent guest on ESPN, MSNBC, and Democracy Now!

He also hosts his own weekly Sirius XM show, Edge of Sports Radio, and co-hosts The Collision: Where Sports and Politics Collidewith former NBA player Etan Thomas (both available as podcasts). You can find all his work or contact him through his website EdgeofSports.com. Follow him on twitter @EdgeofSports.
