Bob Costas on Covering Kaepernick and the Olympics
Iconic NBC broadcaster Bob Costas speaks about balancing the real world and the sports world, when politics rip through the games we often turn to for escape. We also have some ‘choice words’ about white athletes and the movement for Black Lives and we take and respond to messages left on the Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE.) The ‘Just Stand Up’ award goes to the young people with the courage to kneel. This week’s show is dedicated to Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott.
