In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca talk to ESPN’s Jane McManus about covering the NFL’s response to domestic violence, the NFL’s failure to address its past problems with domestic abuse, and how to give women a stronger voice in sports. They discuss the cases of Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and U.S. women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo, asking how the media and sports institutions should treat them. Finally, they are joined by Grantland writer Ben Lindbergh to discuss the baseball pennant races, review the Oakland A’s collapse, and examine playoff myths.
