CV NEWS FEED // A controversial former national swimming champion is standing up for female athletes in a new podcast where she advocates for the preservation of women’s athletics in the face of recent challenges from the “transgender” movement.
Riley Gaines, the 2022 NCAA championship swimmer who argues that men should be kept out of women’s sports, is launching a new podcast in partnership with OutKick, a multimedia conservative platform that focuses on “kicking woke sports, politics & entertainment to the curb,” according to its YouTube channel.
Gaines’ podcast, “Gaines for Girls,” is launching on Wednesday, July 12.
“Since directly experiencing the injustice of competing against and changing in a locker room with a biological male, I decided to spend my energy and efforts into fighting to save women’s sports,” Gaines says in the podcast’s trailer.
Gaines was forced to share a locker room with “trans” swimmer Lia Thomas and also lost a trophy to the biological male in the swimming championship, even though both Thomas and Gaines had tied. Since then, Gaines has become one of the biggest advocates for keeping men out of women’s sports through her public speeches, testimonies in court, and social media posts.
“The aim of the podcast is to share perspectives from elite athletes, medical professionals, policy experts and others who have been affected by the cultural issues plaguing America,” Gaines said in the trailer. “It’s up to us as a nation to stand up for what’s right, moral, and fair. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and say enough is enough.”
Gaines has made multiple appearances on other podcasts, including OutKick, CatholicVote’s LOOPcast, and the Jordan B. Peterson Podcast.
“OutKick is the foremost defender of truth in sports media today,” he said. “Men who identify as women winning championships is patently absurd and only woke idiots at ESPN will defend it. I’m proud of Riley’s bravery in standing up for women against this absurdity and excited to have her as a part of the OutKick family.”
Gaines for Girls will be available on OutKick.com/shows as well as all other podcast providers, like Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
