In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and guest panelist Mina Kimes of ESPN the Magazine are joined by the New York Times’ Karen Crouse to discuss record-breaking swimmer Katie Ledecky, the 18-year-old American who just won five gold medals at the world championships in Russia. They also talk about Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly, who’s been accused of racism by a group of disgruntled former players. Finally, they talk to WNBA star Elena Delle Donne about where she learned her shooting touch, how she markets herself, and what she says to people who hate women’s sports.
