    Changes are coming to the AFLW season for 2022 so do we need to prepare ourselves for Christmas Eve footy? Women struggle to grab top jobs in sport and according to Leigh Russell, former CEO of Swimming Australia, it has nothing to do with a lack of education or skill. Jacinda Barclay generously donated her brain to science but even so neurophysiologist Alan Pearce says we're a long way off understanding the impact of concussion on women's brains.

Go Footy!

Tuning into the Outer Sanctum podcast is a highlight of my week. This is an Insightful and witty podcast with a different perspective on footy. It is like catching up with old friends and is very relatable for women like me who love footy and want another voice to listen to. I enjoy the intelligent conversation and entertaining guests, it is a delight. Even if you are not a footy fan there is something for everyone, as these football loving ladies dissect other issues affecting the community.

Do yourself a favour and tune in to the weekly views from the ‘outer’.

Go Footy!

Simply the best

This footy podcast is quite frankly better than all the rest. It’s smart, funny, considerate and caring. All of these superstars bring something unique to their analysis and are valued members of a wonderful team!

Love ya’s a lot!

We are richer for the contributions of this clever and unique bunch of women!!

The pod perfectly platforms their diverse views of footy and of life — providing intelligent, intersectional and thought-provoking analysis of sport, politics and pop culture — often missing from the sports media landscape. It is an absolute must listen!

“The Outer” community that has grown around this wonderful pod is also a testament to the great and genuine care that the Sanctum Sisters show their guests and listeners alike.

Thank-you for doing what you do!
