Can a Feminist Revolution Save Women's Soccer in South America?

Apr 17, 08:00 AM

This week, we speak to Brenda Elsey, co-host of the Burn It Down Podcast, who is currently in Buenos Aires. She is researching and writing about women soccer players in Brazil, Chile, and Argentina and how they have used collective organizing to reclaim their soccer federations from near oblivion. We also discuss how a broader feminist awakening in South America is affecting this revolt.

We also have "Choice Words" about the NFL and free agent safety Eric Reid. We got “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards, and some wacky NBA playoff predictions going into the postseason.
