SIM Ep 234 Chops 98: Women's World Cup Special
In this week's episode Jen gets giddy abut the Women's World Cup as she chats to a host of excellent women about the upcoming tournament. She's joined by Kait Borsay, host of The Offside Rule podcast to give her top tips on who to watch out for in the England Squad; Manchester City and Scotland forward Caroline Weir talks rivalry with her English teammates; filmmaker Naziha Arebi talks about her film Freedom Fields and countries where women are fighting for more than the right to play; and former Arsenal and England defender Alex Scott, part of the BBC's Women's World Cup team*, talks about her experiences on and off the pitch and why it's a great time to get excited about women's football.
Throughout May, Jen's treating you to a selection of sporty Chops in which Jen chats to: Catherine Bond-Muir, CEO of the W Series –the brand new motorsport series for women - as well as drivers Alice Powell and Emma Kimilainen, to find out how the series got off the ground, and why it's so needed; Jacky Forsyth and Claire-Marie Roberts about their book The Exercising Female and the stunning lack of research into women's bodies and minds when it comes to physical activity; and Sarah Train from anti-discrimination campaign group Kick It Out about what they're doing to tackle racism and homophobia in football.
