In a shocking video produced by the Just Not Sports podcast that released on Tuesday, Internet users are getting a raw look at some of the abusive, violent and harassing comments women in sports media receive on social media.
The video features ESPN’s Sarah Spain and 670 the Score’s Julie DiCaro, with men reading messages the women have received.
