Our current episode | Exactamundo, Dikembe Mutombo | Sep. 9, 2021

Sometimes you just want to talk about things that make you happy — so Kavitha Davidson, our culture writer at The Athletic, joins Full Time to discuss the second season of Ted Lasso, from appreciating the weekly nature of the show to a new appreciation for Higgins to the show’s embrace of earnestness and subversive feminism.

Meg is back from vacation and Steph Yang joins the show to help her catch up on another absolutely wild week in the NWSL. Plus, Douglas Reyes-Ceron from the Rose Room Collective joins Full Time to provide some supporter perspective on what’s happening with the Washington Spirit, and why a single banner created an entire NWSL news cycle.

About Meg

I'm a national staff writer at The Athletic covering the NWSL, U.S. women's national team and more from the world of women's soccer. I covered the 2019 Women's World Cup from France, and travel to cover the USWNT and NWSL, and will cover the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. I also host a digital show, The Fixture by WICC, and am the author of a forthcoming book on Megan Rapinoe and her leadership to be released on June 1, 2021 and now available for preorder.
