EP 22: Sports Activist & Writer Shireen Ahmed

The A-Pod: Arda's Podcast of Dialogues

That’s right, a bonus episode is back this week!

I’m joined by sports activist and writer Shireen Ahmed! Her work has been seen on a plethora of platforms, including ESPN, Sports Illustrated, VICE, Huffington Post, CBC and much more.

Based out of Toronto, Shireen travels all across the continent speaking on sports, activism, politics and feminism amongst other topics.

We have an enlightening conversation about the intersection of sports, politics and activism, and what it’s like covering a story like this from start to finish.

More so, whether or not it’s part of an athlete’s responsibility to speak on current events and issues, and how she sees the future of sports.
