Hello, I’m Jason Kirk, a longtime sports journalist (fancy word for blogger) from in and around Atlanta. I also do other stuff.
My sports posts are currently happening at USA Today’s For The Win. I’ve also written for Slate, Penguin Random House’s Hazlitt, MGoBlog, Atlanta Magazine, AtlantaFalcons.com, Uproxx, and what have you.
In 2013, I co-launched the Shutdown Fullcast, the internet’s only college football podocast. It’s still going, believe it or not!
I edited/co-wrote The Sinful Seven: Sci-Fi Western Legends of the NCAA, a fiction/non-fiction ebook that is precisely what it sounds like. It’s good.
Our grand collective readership’s home base is the Moon Crew discord, accessible via Patreon.
Writing a book or two of my own. We’ll see about all that.
You might know me from some previous stuff:
I led college football coverage at SBNation.com for nearly a decade, overseeing Vox Media’s biggest team-sports vertical. I planned, managed, edited, wrote, and published everything from fast news to original reporting to big ole multimedia feature packages.
In 2016, I launched The Read Option, still likely the biggest CFB newsletter anywhere.
Outside of sports journalism (blogging), I’ve worked in business, education, and management. “Managing a Publix department while getting my English degree” is the part that most amuses some internet consumers.
I’ve also done some talkin’ for This American Life (no, for real), Spotify Greenroom, ESPN, Pro Football Focus, Cheddar, The Solid Verbal, Uproxx, Podcast Ain’t Played Nobody, Split Zone Duo, various radio shows, and so forth.
