Episode 52: Duranting & Raving (with Greg Howard)

With John off on tour, Stefan and Justin are joined by David Carr Fellow and New York Times Magazine writer Greg Howard to discuss Kevin Durant signing with the Warriors, the tackiness of Golden State's recruiting pitch, and what his departure means for Russell Westbrook. Then things get serious, with a frank discussion on how classist power structures at the amateur level create racial tension and disparity in traditionally white sports, and why "transcending race" is a lie. PLUS: lots of P.K. Subban feelings, Stefan's experiences in professional political trolling, and why Edmonton fans deserve to suffer.
