Podcast Du Jour
Nearly every day of the week, Outsports has a new podcast for your enjoyment. Today we have an encore of Cyd Zeigler’s Five Rings To Rule Them All with his guest, pioneering transgender pro golfer Mianne Bagger. She’s been retired for several years, and still wrestles with formulating what might be the “perfect” trans inclusion policy in sports, the concept that participation in professional sports is a “right,” and her place in the current conversation on these topics. Mianna talks with Cyd candidly about her trailblazing history and her hope of finding solutions. Click here to listen.
