Modern Manhood: The Podcast

Episode 6: Boys and Sports

Episode Summary

What is it about sports….and boys? There's a time when a lot of boys start, continue, and play sports. Yet this is not just an activity, it can be an identity, a career, and a means to an end. Sports are a cultural landscape and today we'll tackle how masculinity plays into how sports get played. Through a gender, class, and racial lens. This episode includes the voices of writer Keith Gessen, masculinity scholar Dr Michael Kehler, and researcher Dr Scott Brooks.
