SIDELINED Sports, Culture, and Being a Woman in America

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Julie DiCaro

Contemporary Culture • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Julie DiCaro was an especially rare phenomenon--a woman on sports talk radio who was allowed to express an opinion. With palpable and justified anger, DiCaro outlines the underlying sexism of her industry, the harassment she and other female reporters experienced when they dared to report on the sexual misconduct of male athletes, and the evil and anonymous Internet trolls who hurl fat insults and threaten rape and other violence. This title is perfect for audio. As a radio personality, DiCaro certainly knows how to use her voice--slightly raspy and always honest in tone--to emphasize her compelling arguments. She is angry, fiery, and full of grit but funny and wry, too, as she encourages women in the industry and female sports fans alike to support women's sports and women sports reporters. A.B.
