Sydney Friedman (from the Bersa pattern episode) is back this week to talk about the Jogbra. Which came about at a time when Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb ran in the 1966 Boston Marathon when women were not allowed to and she didn’t have a sports bra. Billie Jean King is named Sports Illustrated’s first ever Sportswoman of the Year and played Bobby Riggs in the infamous ‘Battle of the Sexes’.
