What happens when you don't come from the right stock?​ What happens when you aren't accepted? Do you rebel? Do you succeed? Do you whack a fellow skater on the knee? Maybe not.

"iTonya" is the brilliant movie about the life of Tonya Harding. The things that are true in this movie will surprise you, as will the amount of sympathy that comes gushing out for Tonya Harding. Yeah, we were surprised too.

I am fortunate to have as my guests, Dawn, Josh and Diana to discuss this amazing film about an incredibily talented staker.
