The Apocalypse is here! … but not in the way we wanted it.
The weekend kicked of with the road to Hell being paved with good intentions; Serie A tried to bring attention to violence against against women (good idea!), but the media tried to make some guy* on Juventus the posterboy for the movement (bad idea!)
However, in a surprise twist, Jessie, Megan, and Sonja do not turn their anger towards Juventus, but rather to the wider mainstream media and how they really missed the mark in supporting the #MeToo movement. The #Effortistas also discuss violence and power in other sports, specifically within the NBA (spoiler: we talk Dwight Howard).
We then shift gears into the other Apocalypse, you know, the good one. The podders get into their game/player/team and we read some of listeners’ Apocalyptic Dreams. We also flog our new merch line, while coming up with our own conceptual designs, and wish Sonja’s mum a happy birthday [Sonja’s Edit: happy birthday, buddy!].
Listen with Megaphone (or download using your favorite podcast app–we can be found under “All for XI”) and let us know your faves, or chime in on what you think we missed regarding these Effortista personalities.
In the next episode, we’ll go back to listener questions because, quite honestly, they’re a lot of fun. So, send them in via twitter or email! Feel free to make them holiday themed, with whatever you celebrate this December season.
