In this episode of State Of The Re:Union, host Al Letson explores the role of sports in the lives of young people.

We will travel to Durham, NC, one of the most athletics-focused cities in the United States. Hear how sports bring this community together across lines of class and race, while also creating wedges between people based on team rivalry. Then, two families explain the financial burdens behind pursuing sports -- both from a low and high-income perspective. And we'll explore the gender gap of youth sports as presented in the media.
