For Kicks Podcast, Episode 73: Canada in the 2021 SheBelieves Cup

From February 18 to 24, 2021, the CANWNT was back on the pitch in red and it feels so good. In this episode, we talk about Canada in the SheBelieves Cup. From our thoughts on the newer faces, to new head coach Bev Priestman’s decisions in the wake of missing players and injuries, to Canada’s pesky troubles scoring goals, we dive right in to the whole tournament.

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 72: Pre-SheBelieves Cup chat with Meaghen Johnson

In just a few short days, Canada’s women will be back on the pitch facing USA, Argentina and Brazil in the 2021 SheBelieves Cup. We can hardly believe it’s been the better part of a year since we’ve had an actual match to watch and talk about on the podcast.

In this episode we’re joined by Meaghen Johnson, women’s soccer contributor and highlight manager/producer at TSN SportsCentre, to chat about who we expect to see, what we hope to come out of this tournament and more. 

A little later in the episode, we also talk about a new women’s professional soccer league in North America and how we’re trying to drum up support for our own new local women’s team (spoiler: we want you! slide into our DMs).

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 33: CANWNT vs. USWNT friendlies

This past week we became more Canadian than ever before when we travelled to Vancouver to see Canada take on their fiercest foes, U.S.A. We had so much fun as part of that record-setting crowd. So, if our voices sound strained, it’s because we were yelling. A lot.

In this episode, we talk about the two-game friendly series between Canada and the US. Listen to our retelling of the epic match we attended in Vancouver and lament the match we watched from home.
