390: Caster Semenya & The IAAF, Brunei Backs Down

Throwing Shade #390 May 8, 2019

This week, Erin talks about South African track star Caster Semenya, who lost an arbitration case with the International Association of Athletics Federations deciding whether her naturally high levels of testosterone should disqualify her from competition. Then, Bryan revisits Brunei’s walking back of the death penalty for gay sex (though still illegal) and how we can keep up the pressure to make an even bigger difference.
