From the NBA Finals to the Women’s World Cup

From the NBA Finals to the Women’s World Cup

Burn it All Down Podcast co-host Shireen Ahmed joins the show to talk Raptors and World Cup.


This week we speak to journalist and Burn it All Down Podcast co-host Shireen Ahmed about her experience in Paris for the start of the Women’s World Cup and the scene in her hometown of Toronto following the victory of the Raptors in the NBA Finals.

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the politics of Megan Rapinoe and her decision to not sing the National Anthem at the World Cup. We got a ‘Just Stand Up’ Award for Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (again) for his comments about who really deals with pressure and a ‘Just Sit Down’ award to Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield for his comments about a teammate. All this and more on this week’s show!
