Title IX--which was enacted in 1972 to eliminate gender discrimination from educational institutions--may have had some unintended consequences for female coaches. That's according to a recent report from "Reveal," the radio show from the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX. Annie Brown who reported the story, joins Lauren.

Lauren Schiller is the host and creator ofInflection Point, a podcast and nationally syndicated public radio show about how women rise up. Launched in 2015, and produced in partnership with KALW and PRX, Inflection Point was one of the first radio shows and podcasts in the country to exclusively feature conversations with women about how they build power and lead change. In 2008, Lauren co-created and co-hosted “The Lady Brain Show”, one of the first ever female-led podcasts. Lauren is an award-winning producer, was the Executive Producer of Audio for Salon Media, where she is a regular contributor, and has been a guest host for “The Conversation” on BBC World Service.
