Episode 96: Dr. V, Grantland and Caleb Hannan

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 11.57.31 AM

We spend the entire episode discussing Caleb Hannan’s article Dr. V’s Magical Putter and the controversy surrounding it and how journalists should write about and cover transgendered people.

Does Grantland and ESPN (the parent company of Grantland) bare culpability for a transgender person committing suicide for fear of being outed?

This should become a journalism school case study that all students learn about. Neither of us encountered a story and some of the issues raised here during our educations.
