Hi, I’m Jason Kirk, a writer, editor, and podcaster. I’ve done sports stuff and other stuff. This newsletter’s a sloppy mix of the two.
I’ve written for Slate, Penguin Random House’s Hazlitt, Vox Media, USA Today’s For The Win, Atlanta Magazine, AtlantaFalcons.com, Uproxx, etc.
My wife, Emily, and I are podcasting through this wild book called the Bible. People like our show! It has a Patreon!
In 2013, I co-launched the Shutdown Fullcast, the internet’s only CFB podcast.
I edited/co-wrote The Sinful Seven: Sci-Fi Western Legends of the NCAA.
And I’ve started writing novels in a few genres.
I’m on Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads, Letterboxd, Mastodon, or wherever.
For a decade, I managed Vox Media’s best team-sports editorial group, leading everything from original reporting to multimedia feature packages.
I’ve worked in publishing, copy writing, and English education. “Running a grocery department while getting my English degree” is the part that amuses people.
My appearances include This American Life, Reckon South, ESPN, CBS, the NFLPA, the Dan Le Batard Show, PFF, and Cheddar, plus many other shows.
