Episode 9 starts off with a peculiar announcement. The only thing we can say is we never thought we’d be talking about balding on a women’s soccer podcast, but we went there this week. We won’t plug this storyline anymore (pun intended); we’ll leave it to you. But do email us with hair care solutions for Jordyn if you have'em at

We then get some updates about the current standings in the Big Ten and what a bottleneck it is at the top this year! Sam is hitting the road with the Hawkeyes for a border battle in Nebraska while Sam and the Spartans play their neighbor, the University of Michigan.

Can’t thank Emma enough for sharing so many incredible stories with us. She’s not just a major inspiration on the field but her comeback story is amazing and even more so her passion and knowledge on the benefits of meditation and how it can get you through the hardest of times with grace. Check out the org Athletes in Action after you hear her story. Give her a follow on Instagram and reach out to her if something she’s shared speaks to you @emmajaskaniec

Special thanks to our sponsor IDA Sports, and their willingness to support women’s sports and keep us safer on the field.
