USWNT legend Julie Foudy is here to help us explore the USWNT’s history and cultural impact on society. It’s a special show looking at the team like we’ve never looked at it before through the pages of the newly released coffee table book Pride of a Nation by Gwendolyn Oxenham.
Former USWNT midfielder, 2-time Women’s World Cup Champion and 2-time Olympic gold medal winner, Julie Foudy stops by to give her insights on the team and its impact throughout its four-decade history.
We take experts from the book and dive deeply into them. Julie describes her days with the USWNT and the responsibilities the team takes with them onto the winners podium.
Using the podium as a platform for change is what makes this team one of the most beloved sports teams in the world. With Julie and her 99ers, keeping the current generation on task to know the history and continue the mindset that winning is more about just trophies.
Don’t miss this very special show! (19’)
