Here is a definitive list of all the women’s sport podcasts from Australia. And by ‘definitive’ I mean, let me know who I’ve missed in the comments.
How did I decide who was on the list you ask? If the podcast is Australian, or talking a lot about sport in Australia and features women talking about women’s sport and women talking about men’s sport… and the occasional man talking about women’s sport, it’s on the list.
My favourite women’s sport podcast
Ladies who League
Look I’m not a huge fan of men’s rugby league but I listen to Mary Konstantopoulos and Brittany Carter religiously for their insights into the game. They don’t just do league though and every week they interview a female athlete from all sorts of sports.
Over this summer they’ll become Ladies who Legspin and cover the WBBL and more. From the LWL team, “Tune in each week as Mary K and Brittany Carter cover the latest happenings in international, the Big Bash, state and grassroots cricket. Whether you’re a diehard fan or lover of women’s sports we promise to deliver a fresh spin on cricket (and will try not to let our Thunder bias get in the way).” (In case you’re wondering, I’m all about the Chunder too! And captain Alex Blackwell is a legend.)

This Sporting Wife
“This Sporting Wife came about because Shannon Byrne (ABC Grandstand) and Fiona Bollen (Swoop) just can’t get enough of sport. Not satisfied in finding themselves married to sport through work (they’re not actually married to sportspeople, just sport itself), they’ve decided to commit their spare time to it as well.” Who would be crazy enough to do that?! I have no idea what they’re talking about…
