Podcast: Aaron White from Stonewall Kickball

Spring is in full swing and the podcast gets a little sporty with guest Aaron White from Stonewall Sports Pittsburgh Kickball. Aaron, the commish, talks with us about his work to make the legendary season 12 of kickball the most inclusive and diverse possible, getting back on the field after the pandemic and keeping everyone safe and comfortable. Jim and Jason discuss their “gay guides” growing up and reminisce about VHS. Oh, and we get a little heated at Allegheny County Councilman Bob Macey for his transphobic comments and failure to condemn the wave of anti-trans legislation across the country.
