This week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features sports journalist Irvin Muchnick. In addition to many articles, he is the author of Justice Denied; Wrestling Babylon; and Concussion Inc.. He is a smart, direct, and incisive writer who is expert at locating events in the "world of sports" within their broader social context.

In this installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Irvin and Chauncey talk about how the worlds of professional wrestling and broader American culture and life intersect, the rise of Donald Trump, Irvin's groundbreaking journalism on the Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka domestic violence-murder case, as well as the Chris Benoit tragedy. 

Irvin also shares some great insights about the N.F.L. concussion scandal and his new work on sexual exploitation and abuse in the USA Swimming organization.

This episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show also features Chauncey talking about the hypocrite Ben Carson and how his adviser Armstrong Williams is apparently a closeted gay man who was accused of sexual harassment, and how the GOP's horrible last debate is more evidence of the ways that Fox News is Right-wing state-controlled media. At the end of this week's episode, Chauncey gets personal and gives some inside advice to the students who are protesting racism at Yale and the University of Missouri based on his background as a student activist and quick few years as a college administrator.
