Joe talks with James Robinson, PhD candidate in History at Northeastern University, whose dissertation uncovers the forgotten narrative of working-class and leftist athleticism in the 20th century. Unions, it turns out, did more than just fight for wages and better working conditions—they also hosted sporting events and even had their own teams. Could this bright example of history repeat itself in the future?
