Ep. 24: SI’s Lindsay Schnell joins the podcast to discuss OU’s Joe Mixon, sports and violence against women and being a woman in the sports media.

Lindsay Schnell, staff writer for Sports Illustrated and Campus Rush and the host of SI’s College Football podcast, joins us on The Weekly Brew in what was originally meant to be a segment. However, she proved to be one of the most engaging, interesting guests we’ve had to date, and her insights into covering college football made for a great auxiliary podcast.

So, with limited ado, Austin and Kevin jump right into the Schnell interview, and she shares her thoughts regarding Joe Mixon and the fallout from the article she wrote for Campus Rush after the OU running back faced the media for the first time, following an incident in which he assaulted a female OU student, breaking four bones in her face. Schnell also shares her thoughts on the SI College Football podcast and podcasting in general, and delves into the human-interest angles she mines in her Walk-On Project stories, which feature the most fascinating and impactful stories of walk-on student-athletes in FBS football programs.

Easily one of the best interviews yet on The Weekly Brew, Lindsay’s commentary and insight warranted this very special ‘bonus’ episode (I mean, really, they’re all bonus episodes, since they’re free, innit?), and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it.
