Finally a female perspective in sports

These hosts do a great job of letting me know what’s happening in the sports world without taking 1.5 hours to get to the point or ending in bros yelling over each other. They’re knowledgeable, down to earth, relatable and INFORMATIVE! Thank you both for this podcast!!!

Also, their newsletter is great and one of my favorite emails to receive and everyone should subscribe to that too!
