A podcast celebrating pioneers, Julie Foudy’s latest espnW foray is launching Friday to fete International Women’s Day. “Laughter Permitted with Julie Foudy” is a fun, thoughtful, candid conversation with trailblazers in sports about the joy and chaos found in life and sports. Laughter — and donuts — permitted.
Episode 1 features World Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist Abby Wambach and her wife, best-selling author Glennon Doyle. Julie talks with Abby and Glennon about their relationship — turns out Oprah played a role — and how their modern family works. Abby also opens up about life post-soccer. Listen to Episode 1 of “Laughter Permitted with Julie Foudy” on the ESPN App, Apple Podcasts, and wherever podcasts are available.
Foudy is a former captain of the U.S. women’s soccer team and won two Olympic gold medals and two World Cup titles during her almost two decades with the national team. She is now an analyst and reporter for ESPN and espnW and, most importantly, a donut savant.
Future guests on the podcast include Simone Biles, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Jessica Mendoza, Mia Hamm, Katie Ledecky and Simone Manuel.
