For Kicks Podcast, Episode 1

 It is with massive enthusiasm that Jessica and Katie welcome you to the first episode of For Kicks Podcast, where we’ll be following the Canadian Women’s National soccer team on the road to the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Who are we?
We’re just a couple of old friends and huge woso nerds. After an exciting summer living in a host city for the Women’s World Cup, we needed a bigger platform from which to gush. Just how much do we love our team? This video contains footage of Jess having a breakdown after we lose to England in the WWC.
What’s up with this podcast?
We’ll be recording podcasts related to all the major events that lead the CANWNT to the Rio 2016 Olympics. We hope that means there will be a lot of podcasts between now and next July!
So what’s inside?
In our first episode, we talk about who we are and why we wanted to start this podcast. We also discuss the upcoming International Tournament of Natal and the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Championship, where the CANWNT will be competing.
We hope you enjoy our latest podcast and connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr! You can also check us out on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and SoundCloud, and find to our previous podcasts here!
