Really great and Inspiring

I’ve followed USWNT and NWSL for years and love Kelley O’Hara as a player. I did not expect to love her this much as a host. She’s so personable and you can tell she really really prepares for each interview. Because of this, I’ve started following so many more amazing women. Update: the latest Jill Ellis episode is the best one yet. Regardless of how you feel about her the conversation is fascinating. Very excited about this rebrand.

O’Hara’s next job

I was listening and was blown away at the ease in which Kelly asks the right questions and listens to what her guests are saying. I have no doubt she could be an excellent sportscaster when she hangs up the cleats. Thoroughly enjoyed and will keep listening.
