GEISH 122 – American Pharoah & the Triple Crown

Christienna Fryar joins me as we cover Horse Racing for the first time. We talk about the history of horse racing in the United States, before looking at the historic achievement of American Pharoah winning the 2015 Triple Crown.

We end with a look at the polarisation around Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the Year Award for that year, and a critique of narrow identity politics.
