"She's the chief marketing officer at the women's sports foundation. Thanks for joining us. this grant. It seems to me could be monumental for an athlete. hoping to get to the games Who's eligible for this. So around the eligibility it's really just female. Athletes have one more children under the age of eighteen or female athletes who are expecting to welcome child into their family and twenty twenty one. so it's really broad. We want to help as many women as possible and the applicants need to be us citizens or legal residents and we mentioned that nine mothers have already received the grant. What can you use this money for. What can an athlete spend. You know the expenses around motherhood are they can vary right so it could be everything from Child care You know paying child giver You know if they need some kind of service to watch their children while they're traveling There was a decision made that nursing. Mothers could bring your children which were really about And so you know. Those that are nursing are able to bring their children to tokyo but many will have to go to tokyo alone while someone is back in the states watching their children so it can be used for that it can be used for formula really used for any type of expense that a mother would have in raising her children so people may remember that allyson felix. Who's partnering with the women's sports foundation on this grant a track and field athlete Cut ties with nike. Because she said in an op ed for the times in two thousand nineteen that they penalized her for being a mother. Can you tell me about why this grant was created. So the women's sports foundation was founded in nineteen seventy four. I believe king who's really one of the biggest game changers of our time And we have this history of being voice an ally and advocate for girls and women in sports and working around issues of gender equity and equality and we really take a holistic approach to supporting athletes. So starting the child care fund with athletic was another important step in how we can help athletes along their journey. We're really committed to helping. Mom athletes strive for peak performance in their careers while also balancing the challenges of motherhood and so this grant was really inspired by allyson felix. And her story. She's a nine time olympic medalist and chocolate filled and also mom to cameron And she takes both of those jobs very seriously. She's going off to tokyo to compete in her fifth olympics. And at like many mothers whether you're an athlete or you know you're working in business or you're a nurse or or teacher no matter where you are you want knew that You can do your job successfully while also keeping your family. Happy safe healthy. And so it's the same for all mom athletes. They have the same kinds of concerns. And we really felt like it was important to elevate this issue and Looking at allison again. We were really inspired by her using her platform And more athletes are more women in general are talking more openly about the realities of childcare and needing to address the challenges of balancing their family life with their career life so we thought that this was a step. we could take That would really help a lot of women we we did. Get news from the The international olympic committee that nursing mothers. We'll be able to bring their infants to the tokyo games. Children were not allowed simply because of concerns over covert. I wonder what other kinds of things do. You think might be needed in the future to support Mothers with kids who also want to compete. You know there are a great organizations alongside. The sports foundation like and mother Which is the advocacy organization founded by athletes. Who are working on things In addition to giving grants like us they're also working on programming like you know having nursing stations Or places where you know. Athletes can change changing tables things. That seem pretty simple but that we know that parents even now when they might go to a sports stadium or they may go into an office. You know how are those needs being met How are they even given the time to step away off the field if you will be able to take care of their children and have those moments where they can interact with their family. So i think there's a number of things that the games could be thinking about in the future. I think one of the most important aspects is actually talking to the athletes themselves. Something at the women's sports foundation will be doing later. This fall along with.

Oh, thank you. And now I'm over 90 in my yellow bells have become too much for me to control. And I want to take them out. How do I do that? That's my longest question.

You could just cut him off at the ground once a year and let him just grow back up for the whole year, and they'll come back and be pretty. And if you just want to cut him one time a year, they'll be fine. Could I cut him when the best time to cut him? You know, because they're still they're pretty right now.

Black Gun Ownership Rises Amid Pandemic, Protests For Racial Justice
"A record number of Americans have purchased guns this year including Black Americans from K. N. UNC in northern Colorado Lee. Patterson reports that incidents of violence against people of color have pushed some to purchase guns for the very first time and warning to our listeners. There are sounds of gunfire in this story. What type of gun is? So this is a Smith and Wesson nine millimeter shield cat trailer bought her handgun this past spring these as she practices at an indoor range with her husband like it's no big deal. But talking through her mask trailer describes how she felt the first time she pulled the trigger is beyond terrified shaking. Hands were sweaty. Trailer is a democratic political consultant who lives in Colorado. At first, she was nervous cleaning and shooting her new gun. And she had a bad experience, the first range she went to she says people were staring she felt unwelcome. Still regardless of the anxiety I had around. All those things. I got into this because I feel like it was necessarily trailer I started thinking about buying a gun when she saw empty grocery store shelves at the beginning of the pandemic. Then she watched racial justice protests unfold across the country. She started thinking about pushback from people who disagree with those efforts if it looks like communities, of Color and people that support communities of color are rising up against white supremacy that could be a problem for us is. It's probably time probably time for them to buy guns a thought that many other Americans have also had in. August. Alone people bought one point eight million firearms according to industry estimates a trade group called the National Shooting Sports Foundation reports the gun sales to customers have grown more percentage wise than for any other racial or ethnic group. With. Her New gun trailer wants to feel like she has a chance during a home invasion or an encounter with police. What we as the family had to determine is, how do we WANNA die? Instead of look at it that way. DO WE WANNA die not being prepared or at least trying to protect ourselves. That's how you weigh that as part of becoming a new gun owner trailer joined the National African American Gun Association Philip Smith is the founder nationally across the board from all over every state. We have people joining all times a day night. You know I I thought something was wrong with computer. Smith was watching membership numbers rise after the death of George Floyd may but black people have been using guns for hunting and protection for a long time historian say that Harriet Tubman carried firearms so did the Black Panthers in the nineteen sixties these days according to a Gallup poll released last year nineteen percent of black people own guns. Smith says his members are not monolithic. Some women join because they've been sexually assaulted some women join because they wanNA teach you some men join because they want to just get really good at self defense people are joining now for different. Reasons some want to support the National African American Gun Association Financially Smith says for others it's more spiritual I. Think people were looking for a home a place where you can kind of event you can belong where you felt your mind having a relief of some sort Bruce Tomlin a truck driver who lives in New Mexico describes his decision to buy a gun response to stress. I'll just say amounting society He felt that way after watching cellphone video showing the death of Ahmad arbitrary a black man who was shot while jogging through neighborhood in Georgia earlier this year don't. Go around arm the rest of my life. That's because he's been feeling under attack for years after the two thousand, twelve killings of Trayvon Martin, for example, and after the mass shooting at a black church in Charleston in two thousand, fifteen by a white supremacist goes like I can just be mine them all business. And if somebody who's a racist, just decide to roll up on me gun meet down. As is decided that like if I go out I'M GONNA go out shooting back. But now that he's an actual gun owner, it's not so straightforward day to day of feel like I can defend myself better defend my loved ones. But I usually get comfortable having it sometime he does not want to kill or injure anyone open carry makes them nervous I would never take my gone to the grocery store and carry around inside or anything like that. But on the other hand I could be in a situation where needed still out in the car or whatever I just like knowing that I have it gun ownership is complicated for Tomlin especially because he's black if he was stopped by police says, he probably wouldn't tell them that he had a gun. And catch trailer says the same thing giving the example of philander casteel he was shot during a traffic stop for years ago in Minnesota after telling an officer that he had a firearm, his car casteel did have a permit to carry it. Cat Trailer believes that gun cost him his life we're not given a fair shake when these conversations are happening automatically worsen tensions are assumed just because we're black, we're gun owners for both of these new black gun owners.

"What to make of what we saw from Boston in Los Angeles on some level. And how it all played out for that? Once again, we are delighted to be joined by our outstanding major league baseball analyst and newest hall of Famer national softball hall of Famer Jessica Mendoza, congratulations. Just thank you. I feel super. Like way later, I think people need to understand it. We'll get into the game. But you're going into softball hall of fame two thousand nine hundred and class. That's what Oklahoma City is where the hall of fame is for those that may not know about Jess and her softball career again one Golden Four silver. No eight in the Olympics. Three time world champ free time World Cup champ. Two time Pan American gold medalist two thousand six years. Name USA softball athlete of the year. Two thousand eight Women's Sports Foundation sportswoman of the air all by the way at Stanford. She was a four time first team all American and at some portions of that Mike shared the outfield with. Yeah. Tha teammate with our current teammate now here at ESPN Ramona Shelburne got starts up and down roster here. Yes. You are just a start at the softball thing. Wow. That's a great resume. Congratulations. I I was. Give me a bad. Now. I don't know. It's going to be just listen, just so, you know, we need hall of fame analysis. So here we go. Let's dive in is this the greatest Red Sox team in the history of this franchise. Yes. And John Henry said it actually at the very end that this was the head. It's easy obviously to say it now and without having all of the history and bringing up every single team. But I look at what this team did. And all facets of it. I mean, there's teams in the Red Sox pass where they had stars. And they had certain elements where they have one or two pitchers that came through or one or two hitters, but this team I mean, just Steve Pearce to Mitch more than I mean, not even a stars. And then their biggest weakness in their bullpen turning into their strength. I mean, not only one hundred and eight wins, which that alone makes them the best regular season. But then actually do that in the postseason. You guys know you cover sports, how hard is it for the best team all season long to go on and ultimately win on the biggest stage is you just don't see it happen. And then for a guy like gave it price who was Owen ten. And then all of a sudden is he wins. The last four starts he wins. Three of those last three. What has been the biggest difference? Just watching him pitch when he was all intend to watching him pitching. What he's doing now. He was so humbled guys. I mean even talking to him on the back end of the season knowing coming into the postseason. I mean, battling the demons and he changed stuff. He moved on the rubber he mechanically tweak things, then he started throwing a pitch that he didn't really throw all season long in his changeup is velocity got more. And that was something to do with the Drenica, and he started throwing the Paul ninety four miles an hour even ninety five I ninety five since he was with Tampa. But the most important thing was the change up off of it. Because he moved on the rubber to the first base side. He was able to get more pitches to run away from the bats of these rights. That is something that you just don't see mid to late season. But for him. I think he just was so humbled especially even early in the postseason. Remember that awful game against the Yankees to start the postseason. You felt like the narrative was going to continue talking to Jessica Mendoza national softball Famer and major league baseball analyst for us here at ESPN and just going into the weekend. We talked about what? It had to change for the dodgers. And clearly what didn't all the talk about. Dave Roberts moves in your mind. What was the biggest failing on the dodgers side when they went back home and tried to make series out of us. You know, I go back to the rich hill decision. I felt like we have the same conversation last year against the Astros when he pulled him too early. Then you hear the narrative of this miscommunication. Right. So it's almost even worse because then you find out that Dave Roberts wanted him. But he thought that rich wanted to come out because of what he had said gotta know your players, and I understand that miscommunication happens, but he needed to stay in that game. And ultimately, I felt like that was the changer. Right. They go and win that eighteen and a game they come back Saturday night. And they're ahead. Four nothing in there. Dude is dealing Richhill needed to stay in that game. And I felt like for once Dave Roberts was going on that instinct to keep them in. But wanted to communicate Richhill Hansen the ball. He takes that. As all, right. I guess you don't want to stay in Richhill. Did when you hear all that it almost makes it worse. Is that the communication wasn't there it from the report to hear just at rich hill? Told Dave Roberts in the dugout in the six start. Watching me I'm starting to pretend a little bit. Keep an eye on me. So did that doesn't in your mind justify the move of Dave Roberts after he walked a batter and struck out a better to take him out. So rich hell said keep an eye on me. And then what he told FOX pregame was what he meant by that not that he was fatigue. But keep an eye on me because my stuff is actually it's it's still going. So watch this watch what I'm doing. So what was understood as keep an eye on me? I I'm not really feeling it Richhill said pre game on Sunday. The actually what I meant was keeping an eye on me because I'm still dealing. I mean, that's to me like crazy that that was misunderstood is keep an eye on you to come out. And then Richhill saw him coming out. And just assumed. All right. I'm Don when Dave Roberts said, no, no, I was actually just coming to communicate because he said to keep an eye on them. Wow. That that is that that does put that in a completely. So as Jessica Mendoza's with us newly minted hall of Famer how much of this World Series loss. Do you put on the manager removes at Dave didn't did not do especially those first two games in Boston where he sat all his home run hitters? Yeah. I mean, I don't think it's all in Dave Roberts because the dodgers. It's a combination of people that make those decisions, you know, the the day and age of the manager sitting there and being the only one that makes and writes up the lineup the decides who's coming in and coming out those are gone. I mean, Dave it's a combination of Dave Roberts in the front office. So it's the numbers it's everything the analytics now brings into this. And it's a team, and I do love that it is so many people because in a lot of ways that brings in every facet of the game. But for Dave Roberts to be the sole one to take the blame when maximum see and Cody Bellinger and jock. Peterson sat those first two games. I think that would be wrong because ultimately it's a combination of people that includes the front office. Just what do we do? Now when we talk about assigning blame with Clayton Kershaw is legacy again, really underperforming in another situation. Like we've seen where do you place him? Now how much of that conversation justified at this point. So what I talked about with David price. Right. Moving on the rubber throwing his change up. More figuring out a way to evolve and adapt and be humbled Clayton Kershaw and my heart. Oh my gosh. My heart goes out to him just because guys he wants it. So darn bad. It's clear the demons that he battles. But flat out. He does not change. He continues to throw his fastball in on righties. He continues to have a secondary pitches. A slider that goes in to righties the occasional curb all but he doesn't have a pitch that runs away. So the two seam fastball changeup pitch that will run the other direction. Right. So every pitchy. Throws you can understand it goes left to right. He means something that goes right to left, and that's just part of him. Getting this point example, one is once you stop throwing ninety four to ninety six you have to figure out a way to pitch differently in Clayton Kershaw. Just so stubborn. He hasn't done it. So. Kershaw's two years and sixty eight mill left on his deal. He can opt out he has three days. So just if he realizes he can call a hall of Famer and asked for some advice. Clayton Kershaw now calls you and says, Jessica, what do you think that I should do? What would you tell them? You know, what I thought about this and thought about this, and I'm from LA? I, you know, I want him personally to stay in LA. But then a part of me thinks like if he could go home to Texas, right? If he could just start a new and just get rid of some of these demons that will stay with him. And you know, they'll always be there. But maybe there is something to being in LA something to being the face of that franchise that he completely loves and takes on during the regular season. But in the postseason, it all falls on his shoulders. I just don't seeing him opt out just because I feel like there's a part of him that wants to continue that stubbornness to prove in this uniform. I can be the ultimate pitcher in October that you want me to be but home for him is Texas. And as a part of me that wonders if if he wants to go back home, well, listen at six straight years this team with him have been in the postseason. They haven't gotten the ultimate prize. Sometimes maybe just a change of scenery might be. The best for everybody around. We'll see what happens. Jessica, thanks for being with us. Congratulations on the hall of fame it. Oh. By the way, if you if you feel like you feeling old you're on the right show. Jessica Mendoza was did a great job for us all during that postseason. And again, so our horizon as you read, it was just horrible resume and deserve it into the hall of fame. What interesting point about Richhill again of keep an eye on me. You think it's you know, I'm fatiguing, but it's keep an eye on deal. And that's pretty interesting part of. That's also I mean, that's a that's an ambiguous statement. If you're rich, it is I agree going into the seventh inning one of the most important things you can do as a players communicate. Well, with your coaches, so listen, there's a lot of issues that we discuss in the postmortem of the dodgers going forward. They say a picture is worth a thousand words pictures with a thousand words how much is a certain noise worth. We'll discuss it next..

"Editing powers of our ESPN. W folks always makes me feel like the Kool aid man, like I want to run through a wall and go leave the summit and put into action. All of the things that people are talking about all of the complaints that we want to lead to change all of the moments of success and steps forward that we wanna keep going in that direction. And over the three days of programming and panels, I always leave feeling super energized. But what I noticed at the beginning of this summit and last year as well is that there was a two year span a couple years ago where Lawrence until e who's the ESPN w founder also newly named senior VP of marketing for ESPN when she got up there for two years in a row a couple years ago, she said, as she introduced. The video and talked about the year. This is the year of the women, and it was about these incredible strides being made both on the field and off it in in the audio and broadcast booth in front offices and see sweets and the next year after whatever your was she came back and said, you know, last year I said it was the year of the woman, but this year is really the year of the woman look at these incredible accomplishments and it was it was felt like this sort of these incredible high points for women as we continue to fight for respect in equality and opportunity in sport. And unfortunately it didn't feel like that last year and it's certainly didn't feel like at this year and Aretha Franklin's respect was the appropriate song and some of what Laura talked about in a lot of what came up in the panels and conversations was less about feeling as a -ccomplish as we have in the past and more about feeling like we've been reminded of the glass ceiling as if for the year. Is leading up to us. We were walking up giant flight of stairs and feeling like with each floor that we reached. We were getting better. And this year and last year feels like we hit the ceiling and I don't wanna feel hopeless, and I don't wanna feel negative. I wanna be able to still acknowledge all of the incredible compliments step forward that are being made. But there's a part of me that does feel like when our words became actions, that's when pushback became stronger and stronger, and whether that's asking for equity from our sports foundations and our leagues or demanding accountability for sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace or asking for representation at the highest levels, that's when it feels like there's a power above us that are saying the party's over it was cute, and it was fine when you wanted to March or rally or speak. Or gathered together and feel empowered. But now that you're trying to put that into action, we're done. We're putting a stop to this and that's kind of the vibe I felt as I entered this, your summit, it was much less inspired and energized than in previous years and much more feeling just overwhelmed and exhausted and angry. And so it was really good to be around all these powerful women and to be reminded that I have to avoid fear or anger leading to apathy right that if you get so angry and overwhelmed, you feel like you wanna give up and there's no time for that. We all have to still be a part of the changes that are gonna make things better for everybody here now and everybody that comes after us. And so one of the first things I wanna play for you is NBA executive director, Michelle Roberts, and LeBron James longtime business partner and right hand man, maverick Carter both talking about fear and how they let it motivate them instead of slow them down. Let's start with Michelle Roberts. I'm talking to my niece about this starting on my youngest starting college, and he actually said to me, I am afraid. And I said, you know. There was a time when. I would watch lawyers walk into a courtroom again. I can't help and harken back to mile life who seemed so casual nonchalant, and they were about to pick a jury in a in a homicide. And it was as if they're about to five here shoes and every single time I walked into a court, I used to be terrified, not for me, but for the client. And I'm gonna make sure that that I got the best result and it occurred to me..

"They wanna play more. Whereas the girls are primarily involved for social reasons which is fantastic and what we should be encouraging like, how do you combine the two being part of a social group is hugely. To sports and being comfortable in the social group that you are playing with is also super important to in sports. And I think it works better when it is single gendered. This is not an argument against co Ed sports at all levels, call it sports work, ultimate frisbee co, Ed sports work, but I think the participants have to be at a stage in life where they can appreciate why they're on the field on what they're doing out there and that there's a reason for having a coed team. Right? And I think you know, society rewards men both financially and socially far more for athletic accomplishment than it does women. I think this is part of what advocates are trying to combat when they're advocating for girls to be on code. Sports teams is to try to create a world in which it is desirable for women to be strong and fast and be good at sports. And I think that's part of why boys might be more motivated than girls young age which you've observed. But for me, I mean. One of the organizations I spoke to the Women's Sports Foundation told me that they had researched that said, girls who play sports with boys are more resilient. I ask them to show me the research and they weren't able to find it. But I even if that's true, I imagined that a lot of that resilience comes from playing in an a, a sexist environment, which is kind of what you were saying, Josh. You know, that's not to say, you know, I think I sort of ended my piece reflecting on the other girls on my team in wondering where they are, and if they've found it similarly empowering or if they came out of it thinking, you know, sports aren't for me because I was on this team with few women where our coaches kind of treated us like we weren't there. I'm looking forward to the oral history of the Muller man goes back and finds all of her classmates. I would also like to find the boy whose to fight knocked out in. I was a couple years before the molar men where you on a soccer team or the Buller midnight plays. I kick a soccer volunteer boy's mouth and his tooth fell out. I wonder if he respects women so much. No, she's like a VPN Planned Parenthood or something. We were honored to have a molar woman legends on the show this week and Christina folks that enjoy hearing your voice. It's exciting that you.

"I started coaching my daughter when she was in kindergarten, we had like five girls on the team, and the rest were all boys. A couple of girls quit immediately after kindergarten because they didn't like it. And then in second grade, when we had the opportunity to have an all girls team, there's finally an all girls league. I got like eighty percent of the second grade to sign up and play soccer. So and including the girls that had quit because I didn't like it when it was co Ed and they hadn't expressed at the time that they quit that it was because of boys or that they see it on the field, particularly if you're not an athlete and a lot of their studies, and there are. Beliefs that pre before puberty that girls and boys aren't physically that different and that they should be encouraged to compete against in with one another at those ages, which is, I think a position that you point out in your piece, Christina, the Women's Sports Foundation advocates, and there are other groups that advocate this as well. My experience was the opposite was that it was clear that the girls that were not super athletic did not want to compete at the in the same way. They did not have the same Gretchen. They did not want to hog the ball. They did not want to be as a motive and domineering on the field and that playing with the boys definitely was a turnoff and that once I got all girls together, it was a much happier and more productive athletic experience for everybody. Yeah, I kind of went into this piece thinking not an exactly knowing what I was going to think, but kind of expecting that I would come out thinking that you know there. Is a way to do co Ed sports really well, and that girls and boys are equal at a young age and that perhaps the league I was in just should have been more thoughtful. I mean, first of all, the coaches should not have named us man, but also maybe that the league should have been more thoughtful and put and made sure there wasn't just two or three girls on every team because that's sort of a recipe for them to be isolated marginalized..
