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.
