Sports & Recreation Podcasts >
We sit down with New York's junior senator—and collegiate tennis and squash player—to talk about her journey with racquet sports, getting women off the sidelines, and how athletes make great leaders.
Fixing Tennis, Fixing Ourselves
Rennae and Caitlin recap the scintillating US Open Series, preview what's to come for the rest of the year—and of course, use the debacle surrounding the women's final to make some bold proposals for improving the sport.
The beloved Australian player (and worst golfer Rennae has ever seen) joins the pod to talk about retiring on the top of the doubles game, going to beauty school and the match she'd take back.
The hall of famer (and the tallest of ESPN commentators) joins us along with guest host Chris McKendry to talk about parenting, her astonishing 620+ career wins and the time she wouldn’t shake Rennae’s hand!
The delightful tennis matriarch talks about why there aren’t more female coaches, raising funny sons, and her efforts to turn tennis from a “nation of lesson takers” into a sport played by everyone.
The broadcasting legend joins us to talk about her illustrious career, that controversial interview with Margaret Court, and her insane segment ideas that never made it to air—picture Billie Jean King egging Henman Hill.
Kim Clijsters, Pt. 2
In the second half of our chat with the grand-slam champ, we talk playing with your sig o, the origin of the nickname “Aussie Kim,” and the time a fan dentist saved her from pulling a Dumb & Dumber.
Kim Clijsters, Pt. 1
We sit down with everyone's favorite Belgian, and she was so fun to talk to we had to make two episodes. Here in Pt. 1, we talk the Winter Olympic sport she's going to conquer, a moving memory of her late dad, and the time Svetlana Kuznetsova let her pigs loose.
We fix all the problems with tennis—from coaches who are paid by their charges to the lack of surface variety—with the legendary doubles player and one half of "The Woodies." But we ALSO hear all about his sometime doubles partner, fellow Aussie Rennae, hitting to "the chick" and getting yelled at by Martina Navratilova.
Jason Biggs, the Roger Federer of the celebrity tennis set, joins us to talk about his obsession with Andre Agassi, planes, Andre Agassi’s plane, and his multiple humiliations on Arthur Ashe stadium. Also, fashion correspondent Spain
Professional tennis player, Racquet contributor and pod fashion correspondent Petko takes us inside her "chaotic mind" to discuss her favorite drunk accents, her controversial writing career and literature hotties from previous eras.
Legendary player Chris Evert joins us to trade dating advice—date a nerd, she says—talk MeToo, and share what she learned from parenting three boys and beating the crap out of Billie Jean King. Plus, fashion correspondent Andrea Petkovic reports live from the streets of Paris.
