The first openly gay Division I college basketball player, Derrick Gordon of the University of Massachusetts, has completed his first regular season and we observe the treatment he has received from fans. Or rather, the lack of anything negative to him being gay. It destroys the myth that fans would hate an openly gay athlete.
We then move on to whether Satan is guiding NFL teams to support gay marriage. That's the claim made by former New England Patriots player Craig James this week.
The Final Four in Indianapolis is occuring against the backdrop of the debate over gay rights and religious freedom. The NCAA and other sports leagues were strongly opposed to the law, while the NFL has stayed silent. We examine the subject.

Fear. Depression. Anxiety. Thoughts of suicide. These are some of the emotions gleaned from closeted gay and lesbian coaches Outsports talked to during the men's Final Four in Indianapolis. Despite the progress society has made on gay issues, these coaches feel that their careers would be over if they ever came out publicly. So they hide or contemplate quitting the sport they love. One female coach said she knows of 50 closeted lesbian coaches. There are no openly gay male or female Division I coaches in the U.S.
The podcast also interviews writer Erik Hall, who has profiled several openly gay athletes, his latest being a college cross country runner.
