Ep 144: Reckoning with the Life and Death of Kobe Bryant (TW)

For this very important episode Amira, Jessica, Brenda, Lindsay and Shireen talk about the untimely deaths of nine passengers in a helicopter crash which included Kobe Brant and his daughter Gigi. The BIAD crew speaks of how the news affected them and how they reflected on it. [17:28] For the second segment, the team talks about the legacies and possibilities of women's basketball, and the memories of Gianna, Peyton and Alyssa. They discuss where we go from here, and what we can do for youth and women's sports. [32:46] Finally, the gang talks about the media treatment (the good and the horrible) of these deaths, how the media speaks about survivors of rape, and how it polices Black grief. [54:52] Of course, you’ll hear the Burn Pile, [1:07:51] the Bad Ass Woman of the Week segment, starring the incredible Captain of the Canadian Women's National Team Christine Sinclair, [1:09:58] and what is good in our worlds.
