Burn It All Down is the feminist sports podcast you need.

“Not only can this diverse group of friends be counted on to bring an intersectional eye to everything they discuss, they’re also on the ball when it comes to basic coverage, as well.” – Shondaland

“This podcast is a who’s who of amazing women sports writers.” – Bitch Magazine (No. 77, Winter 2018 issue)

“It is fantastic to finally have a show that…understands that not all sports fans live in man-caves in their basement.” – Rewire


Hosted by (from left to right):

  • Brenda Elsey, Associate Professor of History at Hofstra in New York
  • Jessica Luther, freelance sportswriter and author in Austin, Texas
  • Shireen Ahmed, freelance writer and sports activist in Toronto
  • Lindsay Gibbs, sports reporter at ThinkProgress in Washington, DC
  • Amira Rose Davis, Assistant Professor of History and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Penn State University

Each week, we bring an intersectional feminist view to the biggest stories in sports, toss the most abominable people in athletics on the proverbial Burn Pile, celebrate some of the most badass women, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming people in sports, and interview some of the most influential figures in the game.
