Episode 28: Racism in sport, getting ready for the Winter Olympics, and the NWHL’s Kaliya Johnson

This week on Burn It All Down, Shireen Ahmed, Brenda Elsey, and Jessica Luther discuss racism in sport, including recent incidents in soccer and baseball, and share stories they’ve enjoyed about athletes preparing for next year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Then Shireen interviews professional ice hockey player, Kaliya Johnson.

As always, you’ll hear the Burn Pile and Bad Ass Woman of the Week.

And in a final, special segment, writer and author of Baseball Life Advice, Stacey May Fowles, remembers pitcher Roy Halladay.
