The Rebel Beat Se2 Ep9: Dave Zirin and the Music at the Edge of Sports

 

Boom!

Welcome back to another monthly episode of The Rebel Beat, a Firebrand Records podcast, and your spot for class war on the dance floor.

Our special guest this month is none other than Dave Zirin, author and host of the Edge of Sports podcast. Dave’s work delves into the fascinating collisions between sports and politics, and his work is incredibly inspiring for activists, sports fans, and activist sports fans! But importantly, Dave is also a huge lover of music, and that love really comes across in the podcast. He was in Montreal last month for an event, and we sat down for an interview over bagels, lox, and plenty of coffee.
