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.
