I’m Alex Kirshner, a freelance writer based in Washington, D.C. I have written a lot about sports, and frequently about non-sports, at a lot of different places: Slate, The Atlantic, GQ, FiveThirtyEight, Men’s Journal, The Ringer, VICE, Baseball Prospectus, and more. Before starting my freelance career, I spent about seven years in various roles at Vox Media and SB Nation. I co-host Split Zone Duo, a podcast about college football and the many forces that shape its weird, sprawling, American landscape.
