Fantastic and fresh.

This content may be mistaken as made “for women” but this is just great sports content for everyone by two knowledgeable women. The sports world needs more of this.

Love this pod and the hosts!

It’s so refreshing to hear two women talking about sports and not shying away from all the social justice issues that come with the male dominated sports world. Love it.
