Kate Fagan and Jessica Smetana host this magazine style podcast. The show will include a mix of interviews, skits and discussions that consider an alternative historical point of view on culture, as well as women’s sports and those who have critiqued them. While the show is *technically* about sports, it will mostly enter through the side doors of pop culture and comedy, with a northstar of telling the story of (women in) sports with humor, insight, and joy.

Timeless & Fantastic

I’m so late to this game that it’s not even being played anymore! But I’m glad I found it now because it is a treasure trove of all that is amazing about women in sports. I vow to listen to all 50-some-odd episodes, chronologically (I don’t want to miss the through lines…and the REAL ads are actually current, so hopefully Kate & Jess still get some $$ from my streaming). So if you’re just seeing this, you will still LOVE it. As a NOT UCONN fan, I’m thoroughly enjoying Season 1 and can’t wait to get to the rest!

Shows how pointless Apple ratings are

So bad, so boring, and so cancelled.

Noooooo

Unequivocally one of my favorite podcasts! Very creative and interesting with great storytelling!
The best thing I learned in the last few years was that a walking sport can cause such a ruckus! Honestly there is too much to reminisce on very sad day! I hope you guys can find a way to do something similar to this soon.
