A Jewish Wrestling Coach in Palestine w/ Sam Stein
In this episode, Sam Stein joins me for a fascinating conversation about his unique journey from growing up in an Orthodox Jewish Republican household in the US to becoming a Palestinian solidarity activist and wrestling coach in Palestine. We delve into various topics, including the neoliberalization of wrestling, the ideology of Krav Maga, the impact of privilege on sports, and the myth of the "hungry and poor athlete." Shout out to our wrestling analyst Zach Goldrosen (@goldjaboytellem).
