“Laughter Permitted with Julie Foudy” is a fun, thoughtful, candid conversation with pioneers in sports about the joy and chaos found in life and sports. Laughter — and donuts — permitted. “Laughter Permitted with Julie Foudy” is presented by Ally, a leading digital financial services company.
Episode 1 features USWNT’s Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris, as the couple talk with Julie and co-host Lynn Olszowy about going public with their relationship, the significance of sharing their wedding on social media and Ali’s journey from being cut from the USWNT and then winning another World Cup.

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.
