Episode 6: Athletes or gods? (Examining Our Double Standards When It Comes to Athletes and Celebrities)

May 15, 2017

Hey WAT listeners! This episode is about sports and morality. Kyle and Ryan are huge football fans, so we thought we'd dive into an interesting phenomenom of sports: when athletes do wrong and are still allowed to play. The guys chat about how we tend to idolize our favorite athletes and whether those athletes are role models or not. They also discuss social value systems and unfair application of punishment. Then they ask whether they should keep supporting a culture that doesn't always match their values. Join the conversation on twitter @wat_podcast or Facebook. Thanks for listening!
