Ep #217: Under fire: Iranian protests & Elnaz Rebaki, plus quick hits
October 20, 2022
On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz dive into the story of Iranian climber Elnaz Rekabi, who competed without a hijab last weekend. Her decision was seen as a powerful statement amid the ongoing protests in Iran, but given the country’s history of human rights abuses, many are fearing for her safety.
Then after the break, El and Steph have a rapid fire segment covering disgraced Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder, the latest bullsh!t from Hockey Canada and, in positive news, an NWSL semis preview.
