Rhiannon Walker and Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic and writer and educator Jane McManus
Episode 128 of the Sports Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch features three guests for a roundtable discussion on the Jared Porter story and sexual harassment of female sports reporters: Rhiannon Walker, a staff writer who covers Washington football team for The Athletic; Jane McManus, the Director of the Marist's Center for Sports Communication, a Deadspin sports columnist and the co-host of “Ladies Room” podcast with Julie DiCaro, and Britt Ghiroli, a national MLB writer for The Athletic and an MLB Network contributor. In this podcast Ghiroli, McManus and Walker discuss how they processed the Porter story; getting sent penis pics from sources and potential sources they covered; how often sexual harassment happens in the business; Ghiroli’s piece in the Athletic and the line of “if you’re too nice, you are asking for trouble and if you aren’t nice enough, you’re a bitch”; the exhaustion of dealing with this during your career, and much more.
