Refinery 29's award-winning podcast is back for season 4! In this five-part capsule collection, host Elisa Kreisinger dives into the world of the professional female athlete to explore how they've survived and thrived in a sports-loving country that doesn't alway love them back. Did you know that the highest grossing sport for women is tennis? Or that the US exports many of our best female athletes to China and Russia because they pay them a livable wage? This season we talk with soccer legend Abby Wambach, WNBA superstar Swin Cash, world renowned ballerina Isabella Boylston and sports journalists from around the country to unpack what it means to be a female athlete representing a country that doesn't support women.

Extreme overuse of the word "like"

I read refinery29 every morning but I cannot continue listening to this podcast. The podcasters' extreme overuse of the word "like" is very irritating. I urge the producers to count how many times the word "like" is used in the first two episodes. I'm addicted to podcasts and I'd like to continue to listen to this one. Please improve!

Fun, feminist, smart

This new show is such a smart analyses of pop culture from a feminist perspective! Keep it up!

Great podcast!

So smart and well-researched, I especially love the care that goes into editing – which can be difficult for podcasts, everyone wants to go sooooo long. This one is perfect.
