Fabulous

By far my favourite podcast! Sam and Lynn are exceedingly capable hosts, their friendship and professionalism creates an almost perfect balance between hilarity and intelligently conducted interviews.
Only suggestion would be an asksnacks question submission link or something for those of us that don’t have Twitter!

Can’t believe I waited so long to listen

These two make you want to just fire off a text to ask them to be your friends. Sam and Lynn remind me of my days playing collegiate sports and all the highs, lows, and politics and camaraderie (and injuries) that went along with it.

Snacks is a great mix of real life, soccer, hilariousness, and everything in between: mental health, relationships, and definitely good talks about “sometimes foods”.

Their conversations with other athletes remind us that while they are pro soccer players, they’re not all that different than the rest of us and it’s so refreshing to hear.

Ok but really Lynn and Sam, you guys wanna be friends?

Fantastic podcast !

Love the dynamic duo of Sam and Lynn and their in depth connections with everyone they interview. They provide a comedic approach to ins and outs of women's soccer and women's sport from some of the best in the league! Definitely having a ok time when listening.
