How Sports Provided a Safe Space w/ Jenna Weiner
This episode we are joined by Jenna Weiner and absolutely loved our conversation with her. She is an ultimate player for the Western Ultimate league, as well as a disc golfer, trans woman, scholar, musician, and TEDx speaker. This conversation was so moving and really highlights one of the most beautiful things that sports can be: a safe space. It's not always the case. It's different league by league, team by team. Jenna's story though is inspirational in how one person being authentic and vulnerable led to dramatic change in her sport. Give Jenna a follow on Twitter, check out her blog, watch her TED talk and support the WUL when they begin playing this year! -------------------- Follow She Plays on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook Create our new, free NWHL fantasy games here: fantasy.she-plays.com CHECK OUT OUR NEW PODCAST: Sports Break!

Pop Culture + Women's Sports w/ the FutureMillionHeirs
It's no lie that 2020 has been a tough year. One thing that has kept us laughing, entertained and inspired is the FutureMillionHeirs! This dynamic trio (Hailey, Amanda and Ali) is bringing together pop culture and the world of women's sports in the battle to close the coverage gap that exists in the sports industry. Women's sports only receive 4% of sports media attention despite women being 40% of athletes in the country. As the FMH team says, "We cover women’s sports. Because you can’t close the pay gap without closing the coverage gap. And because we f*cking love women’s sports." Cheers to that! We love the FutureMillionHeirs - give them a follow and you will not regret it! Find FMH on Instagram, Twitter and their website! Check out their podcast as well!!
