What I’ve Been Looking For

As a woman who loves sports, I’ve been looking for a sports podcast that isn’t filled with bros. I found SWB after My Favorite Murder repped it for International Women’s Day and have been binge listening ever since. It’s so fun to listen to women who love sports as much as I do.

Very enjoyable, could unleash more humor.

Have listened to just a handful. Klingenberg and Stubbs episodes were fantastic. For such a funny and accomplished stand up comedienne, Erin could stand to unleash more humor into the podcast.
