Olympic trials continue & a celebration of Title IX

Hey there!

On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-host Steph Rotz and guest host Lauren Tuiskula discuss two big upcoming events: the 2024 Paris Olympics and the anniversary of the passage of Title IX, the landmark U.S. civil rights law.

First up, Steph and Lauren chat through the ongoing U.S. Olympic swimming trials and this weekend’s track & field trials, where some Olympic hopeful’s dreams will come true.

Then in part two, the gals dig into Title IX ahead of the 52nd anniversary this Sunday, June 23rd. The law has been crucial in leveling the playing field for women in sports, but there are still areas where it falls short.
