21st Century Trailblazer: Talking Sports & Politics With Ibtihaj Muhammad

image

This week we speak to the only Muslim American woman to ever medal at the Olympics and the first American woman to ever compete while wearing a hijab, Ibtihaj Muhammad. It’s a fascinating insight into what makes her excel. We also have choice words about the ESPN layoffs, our just stand up and just sit down words, Kaepernick watch, and the question for our listeners; are you done with football?
