Backtalk: Naomi Osaka & Serena Williams Deserved Better

This week, Dahlia and Amy talk about what went down at the U.S. Open and how it hurt both Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams. In a sport with a history of sexism and racism, specifically anti-Blackness, it’s tough to ignore the unfairness lobbed at Williams during this championship match and how it overshadowed Osaka’s win. And we’ve got time for a Petty Political Pminute! We want to know if you like your cooking shows baked in delight or like an overheated kitchen—text “Food” to 503-855-6485 to let us know!
