We are off this week but don’t worry: our friends at the Latino Media Collective are guest hosting!

While the boys have their fun at the World Cup in Russia, the LMC dedicates this episode to the secret history of Mexican women’s fútbol and the bright future it has ahead following the success of Liga MX Femenil.

We speak with Joshua Nadel, an associate professor in the History Department at North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. It’s a story of perseverance in the face of sexism, homophobia, lack of support and institutional discrimination.
