Throwing Shade #356 September 12, 2018

This week, Erin dips into the decision by the World Surf League to award equal prize money to male and female athletes and why other sports leagues should take note. Then, Bryan discusses a motion by a group of 16 states asking the Supreme Court to limit protections against LGBTQ workplace discrimination. Guest Trixie Mattel returns to chat about singing brides, being fired for absurd reasons, and Ted Cruz’s anti-tofu, anti-California rhetoric.
