What is sporttokz?

SportTokz with SportProfz is co-hosted by Ryerson University’s RTA School of Media professors, Prof Walz (Laurel Walzak) and Prof Joe (Joe Recupero) with recurring Featured Guests, Dan “The Coach” Berlin, Aksel Lielmanis, and Chelsea Vern. The show is produced LIVE via Zoom conferencing call every Monday night at 8pm for 1-hour. We invite a new Spotlight Speaker and Featured Guest each week where the sport pro’s and prof’s tackle a topic list curated to suit the current climate in the sports industry. Our show also focuses on highlighting and analyzing the intersection of sport with critical social justice issues from an academic lens. We record the entire show for our social media platforms to later post highlights of our speaker’s expert insight and advice.

SportTokz with SportProfz: Season 4, Episode 2 with Shireen Ahmed SportTokz with SportProfz

This week, we had the privilege of speaking with writer, activist, public speaker, podcast host- (how does she do it all?) – Shireen Ahmed! We spent some time discussing her experience as an academic (Chicago citations are the worst!) as well as how important representation within sport is. Listen in as Shireen and Prof Walz dive into their time writing a book together, how crucial the work that Hijabi Ballers is doing for Muslim women in sport is and how important it is to call attention to these often overlooked areas. This open, and in-depth conversation is a great listen and one you don't want to miss!
