Kate Fagan and Jessica Smetana host this magazine style podcast. The show will include a mix of interviews, skits and discussions that consider an alternative historical point of view on culture, as well as women’s sports and those who have critiqued them. While the show is *technically* about sports, it will mostly enter through the side doors of pop culture and comedy, with a northstar of telling the story of (women in) sports with humor, insight, and joy.

Soft Americans?
In this, the second episode of OTLG, Kate and Jessica expand their range: bringing on Olympic marathoner Kara Goucher to discuss the ripple effects of one photo of her from 2008 (which sends Kate and Jess down another rabbit hole), then Kate tells Jess the epic story of one long-ago athlete whose life is the stuff of Hollywood. Plus, Kirk from Fort Collins leaves ANOTHER voicemail, and a tactical gear company pitches its newest product. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
