weird episode, no clue why the guy accepted to go on the show if he was actually upset about covering this game. Them wanting to actually get a native American perspective on it is absolutely fine and even commendable. He should have said no honestly and not wasted everyone's time. what a waste of a podcast episode. They didn't want to just be two white people laughing at the game end of story.
