Episode 05: USWNT vs. USSF Lawsuit
On Episode 05, we bring on a special guest, lawyer and soccer journalist Greg McKay, to chat about the latest events in the USWNT's ongoing lawsuit against the US Soccer Federation. Greg provides a quick overview about the different pieces of the lawsuit, what the latest decisions mean, and why this lawsuit isn't as straight forward as we may think it should be. At the end, we answer a couple listener questions for the first time!  Follow us on Twitter @4StarNationPod to send in any questions or comments. Follow Greg on Twitter (@Greg__McKay) and read his latest about the lawsuit at First Touch Online: https://www.firsttouchonline.com/usa-women-continue-to-fight-for-a-level-playing-field/ Disclaimer: Due to learning how to podcast via video conference, we are aware Bill's sound during the main segment isn't as crystal clear as our past episodes. Please know that this has already been addressed for future episodes. Apologies and thanks for listening!
