Reeves Wiedeman (@reeveswiedeman), Contributing Editor at New York Magazine, joined Jeff this week to for a historical and contemporary look at how sports and politics have meshed. Referencing his recent article, Reeves first gave us a detailed look at the historical nature of how “sports and politics” was born in the 1960’s. From there, of course, the discussion veered into this past NFL season where Colin Kaepernick became the focal point of social issues within the African-American and policing community. What does this mean for the sports world and will sports ever be a politics-free zone? Overall, if you’re a fan of history and sports, this a Table Talk show and interview you won’t want to miss.
