This week I spoke with Dr. Bryan Ellis, Senior Lecturer in the Irvin D. Reid Honors College at Wayne State University, about the sociology of sport, the relation between sports and society, and how that relation may be made visible in this pandemic. But first, I recently spoke with Dr. Liana Christin Landivar, Faculty Affiliate, Maryland Population Research Center, about her recent paper titled “First-Birth Timing and the Motherhood Wage Gap in 140 Occupations.” The paper is scheduled to be published in Socius.
