First hour: Special rebroadcast - Olympic gold medalist and LGBTQ activist Greg Louganis

Second hour: Capitol Steps - Politics Takes a Holiday, July 4th Edition

In this special rebroadcast, we talk to Greg Louganis, Olympic gold medalist and LGBTQ activist. He joins us in studio to discuss a range of issues, including the inclusion (or exclusion) of gay athletes in locker rooms, and the landscape for people with HIV. Our guests:

  • Greg Louganis, Olympic gold medalist, LGBTQ activist, and author
  • Dr. Bill Valenti, M.D., co-founder, senior vice president for strategic advancement, chief of innovation, and staff physician at Trillium Health

Then in our second hour, it’s the Capitol Steps. There’s plenty of material to go around, so why not sit back, relax, and forget you voted for any of the people mentioned in this special? Not for the faint of heart or for those considering running for office.
