The Women’s World Cup latest & NFL running backs’ financial woes
On today’s episode of The GIST of It, host Ellen Hyslop and guest host Jessica Aldos are kicking it fútbol and football style! First, they chat through the early days of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup play, as well as the record attendance and viewership the tourney is already bringing to the pitch — plus how that could be leveraged to level the World Cup playing field.
Then after the break, the gals pivot to the pigskin, where NFL running backs are making headlines for a pay gap of their own. In what is arguably the most undervalued position on the gridiron, top players are considering sitting out the 2023 season unless they receive a fair contract. It’s giving hot labor summer.
