    No. 173: Justin Nelson - Embracing Change & Innovation

    Back on the pod, Justin Nelson, Head of Commercial & Fandom at Sky New Zealand joins us to share more on the recent news of the significant changes to the Tauihi League.
    Justin joined us back in 2022 ahead of the launch of the Tauihi League and in this episode we talk about the continuing evolution of NZ women's hoops amidst some groundbreaking changes, the rationale and most importantly the vision in play and opportunities this presents for women's hoops - players, fans and sponsors alike.
    At the time of taping, and in a complete coincidence we had just heard of the devastating loss of the Melbourne Boomers franchise in the WNBL; giving us a raw insight into not only the very personal disappointment for Justin but also the urgency to adapt with clear vision & purpose alongside the right partners as we witness momentous shifts in women's sports globally.
    Enjoy!

    No. 172: Remember the London Lions with Cazzy B

    No. 172: Remember the London Lions with Cazzy B

    We’re grateful to have STB pod regular Cazzy B return to the pod, she’s recently been awarded for her volunteer efforts for WBBL team Manchester Giants, in her role as a commentator and livestreamer for womens British basketball. In this episode, Caz takes us court-side from her trip to London’s Copperbox, in this evocative re-telling of a fairytale ending for the London Lions in their EuroCup victory. A historic victory that in her words ’…is the biggest thing that's ever happened in British basketball, women's or men's, full stop…’ It’s an incredible moment for womens basketball, with packed stadiums and global viewership like never before, but it’s bittersweet for some teams that continue to grapple with the necessary level of investment required to match the appetite of fans. We talk about that paradox, as currently, the Lions, will not play in the European League next year to defend their title. We certainly know that for many hoops fans, they will remember the London Lions EuroCup victory in 2024! Enjoy! Don’t forget to like, share and leave a review so we can get more Hoops content to you!

    No.170: Roaming Mic LIVE at the Q (historic Sydney women’s hoops)

    No.170: Roaming Mic LIVE at the Q (historic Sydney women’s hoops)

    In an STB podcast first, some of our crew took a roaming mic around Qudos Bank Arena on Sun 18th Feb for a WNBL showdown between home team Sydney Flames and Southside Flyers. 

    With the largest stand alone crowd at a Flames game in the clubs history of 6,834, the STB crew got to interview some people behind the scenes, including past pod guests and folks connected with the teams. 

    While the audio was raw, you’ll defintely get a feel for the energy and genuine excitement of the fans and hoops community - before, during and after the game, reflecting on what was considered one of the best WNBL regular season games in possibly the tightest lead up to a WNBL finals! 

    Also marking an extra special thank you tribute to Australian Basketball Icon Lauren Jackson alongside fellow Opal and Sydney Flames centre Cayla George in her 350th WNBL Game!
