    Love to listen with my daughter
    I love this show. The female athletes are so inspiring and Julie and Lynn have an approachability that draws out their guests and makes us all seem like friends.

    Mahalo! Love it!! & Future Guests
    Absolutely love the podcast! It’s been great going back through these again and reliving some of the great stories that you may not necessarily hear from other interviews. Keep up the great work! Love being part of this #dopevillage 🤙🏼 would love to hear: Misty May Treanor, April Ross, Marta, Sue Bird, Dara Torres, Megan Rapinoe, Carissa Moore, Diana Taurasi, Christine Sinclair and of course a 99ers series! 😀

    Underwhelming Season 3
    Season 3 isn't great plus Julie spends a lot of time laughing at her own jokes. But it's still not that bad

    Lacrosse player request
    Love this podcast!! I was wondering if you guys could do an episode with a lacrosse player- really fast growing sport and would be interesting for listeners!
  • scorpio1710
    I grew up watching Julie make such an impact on women’s soccer and sport in general. As someone who is still kinda new to podcasts, this is a staple in my library. I love the throwbacks and soccer connections, as well as getting to know amazing women in the sports world. Keep it up ladies, I’m loving the dope village! PS I would LOVE a Joy Fawcett/Shannon MacMillian pod... :)

    Favorite podcast!
    As a huge women’s soccer fan (and women's sports in general) this is my favorite podcast. The best conversations with a variety of guests. Thank you for bringing on guests that inspire others and share great stories.

    Female icons heard here!
    This podcast is a historical treasure. Yes, I I listened to everyone and some twice. The questions are thoughtful and the stories are an amazing progression through the growth of women’s sports. I was a female athlete before title nine, I’m in awe of the women that took the opportunity to be the best they could be. Thanks for having the black athletes on to discuss the rest of the story, hard stuff but we all need to know it to be able to support.

    Julie & Lynn are Awesome!
    I accidentally found this podcast when searching for something by Glennon Doyle. Thank goodness she married Amy Wambach so I could discover Laughter Permitted. It's funny, smart, insightful, and real. I thought I knew alot about women's issues and accomplishments, but I learn something new in every podcast. And Julie & Lynn have kept things meaningful and timely addressing our "new normal" in pandemic-land as well as Black Lives Matter.

    Love the podcast.
    Thanks for making my time at the gym fly! I laugh and I think and I can’t wait for each episode. Proud to be part of the dope village.

    Laughter IS permitted!
    Love this podcast so much. Love the stories and the information and background. I appreciate hearing how teams form and coalesce together. Love all your guests. Have to admit, I don’t commute these days, so am a little behind. I have a guest suggestion for you. This person is strong, great story-teller, loves to laugh, wicked sense of humor. She’s about mentoring, building strong relationships, leadership, inclusiveness. Lin Dunn is a WBB legend. If you haven’t met her, ask Catch or Sue Bird about her. Thanks, Julie. Can’t thank you enough for this pod. You and Lynn do a great job!

    Podcast gold
    Love this podcast! Knew I’d love the soccer interviews and thrilled to ‘meet’ all the other athletes. Fantastic episode w Jessica MacDonald - rooting for her continued success and may she always have her shinguards nearby! Thanks Julie and Lynn!
  • DuskMem
    Completely enjoyable
    I love the stories, questions, wisdom, insights and laughter of this show. Some episodes have so much life advice that I need to listen to them over again. Love the format and the glimpses into the real lives of these folks. Julie and Lynn I am hooked!

    This podcast is dope!
    Favorite podcast of all time!!! Thanks for providing uplifting stories from amazing women!
  • time to believe
    Amazing podcast! Just curious- can you interview the walking triple double Sabrina Ionescu? And maybe one of her former Oregon teammates??
  • Notfromnyboslamia
    Live and Laugh
    Love the positive vibe. The Kikkan Randall & Jessie Diggins ep. was fantastic. I like that they cover not only sports accomplishments but also relateable life adversities. Nice job Lynn and Julie.

    I’m a Dope Villager
    Ive been a Julie Foudy fan since 1999, for obvious reasons. I anxiously await each week’s episode to learn about a new amazing woman (or 2) who has an important story to tell to the world. Julie and Lynn have handled these podcasts with compassion and class, and always can find the humor AND the teaching moment. I’m a huge fan of this podcast and the women whom they feature; thus, I consider myself a Dope Villager. ~ Kerri Walsh-Jennings “My village is dope”
  • Natron4
    The best Podcast
    I love this podcast it is great to watch. For new episodes I suggest more from the USWNT and I would like to hear Christen Press and Tobin Heath together on a podcast as well as Megan Rapinoe abs Hope Solo.
  • Twofer6
    One of the best episodes yet
    Kikkan and Jessie! I watched that race and cried for joy at the finish. Where else can you find great, in-depth interviews with such outstanding female athletes? Keep it rolling!
  • Anna Loef
    Podcast Goals!!
    This podcast exceeds all expectations!! My twin sister recommended it and let me just say, I LOVE listening! Whether I am walking my dog, going for a run, or attempting to do something productive, this podcast has me engaged, smiling and quite literally laughing out loud! Thanks so much, Lynn and Julie for creating the perfect podcast and finding the best guests to share their journeys with us all. You two are such a dynamic duo! Please keep the episodes coming!

    Absolutely love this podcast and it is the highlight of my week every week. The guests are so inspirational and have given me so much perspective and motivation as they are such strong women. Lynn and Julie pour so much heart into the podcast and make it such an awesome show. Thank you thank you!!!
  • Stewy88A
    Love it!
    Julie and Lynn are hilarious but also ask great questions. The story telling from their guests has been amazing! A must for women in sport but so important for young women in general just to hear from female trailblazers. Keep it up!!!
  • Tlruppe
    Just awesome
    Julie and Lyn have moved to the top of my list of people I want to have dinner with. I love the show. I love the premise. I love the inspiration.
  • Ankle Breaker123
    Best podcast ever
    Nothing is gonna top it. Nothing! Julie is honestly the funniest person ever and would be such a great teammate. Lynn keeps everything in order, without her it would just be a donut party! Love the podcast! ❤️I also have watched every single episode!!
  • Abs.2020
    Love this podcast!
    I love this podcast! I’m inspired by the achievements of the women interviewed and love getting to hear their stories! It also gives me lots of opportunities to laugh out loud in public places and have people stare out me when I listen while walking, running, or cleaning my classroom after a long day!
  • tina5curtis
    Thanks for keeping it real
    Ladies, your podcast has helped me so much during this time. I’m a middle school music teacher and the school closures stopped all of our festival trips, competitions and concerts. The kids were devastated and I was finding myself running low on inspirational motivation to keep them showing up for Zoom classes. Colleen Hacker’s interview was so perfect! I even made a lesson based on her “Don’t just think it, ink it” saying. It gave the kids permission to voice their frustration, grief and anxiety and then discover what positive things they are learning about themselves through all of this. You would’ve thought the responses were from high school or college kids , except for the poor spelling. Thank you for being who you are! I love your podcast!

    So fun!
    This is such a fun pod cast! Julie is a great interviewer, and Lynn keeps everything moving. Thanks for the personal glimpses of some of my favorite people. There is power in humor!

    Bring on Season 3
    Hi, so I’ve gone through many a podcast and have to say, Laughter Permitted is the BEST. Entertaining, insightful, thoughtful and completely fun. When does the LP merchandise come to market? Would love to advertise via t-shirt, our on my runs! Look forward to many more seasons of you both. Thanks for being you. Cheers, Jean Schalk

    Warmth and Wisdom
    Thanks for a podcast filled with warmth and wisdom. I’ve enjoyed all the episodes and love the nuggets of gold found within. As a director of a non-profit youth sports foundation (Town and Country Optimist Foundation) in Austin TX, I wanted to let you know that we shared your Colleen Hacker episode with our community of families as a source of light during our Covid-19 closure. It’s hard not having kids playing out on our field right now but we continue to be optimistic and hunt joy. Thanks y’all!
  • cfrazermt
    I love your podcast. It makes me laugh and think of my soccer teammates throughout my life. I played for Colorado State in the early 80s and I’m still friends with many teammates. When we get together we laugh till we snort. And one of them has a great story of playing in a tournament against Julie Foudy in Las Vegas. Cindy headed a free kick taken by Julie and saved a goal. Then later in a similar situation Julie fired a rocket at Cindy’s head, but she ducked. (To be fair Julie’s team was ahead something like 7-0).

    Much Needed Laughs
    I was so excited to see new episodes recently! This podcast has given me much needed laughs since I came across it. Especially recently. Thank you Julie Foudy and Lynn Olszowy! Keep’em coming!
  • Juliana Alvarado
    Such a great podcast. It’s so pure and genuine. Julie was such a great soccer player and legend to US soccer. This podcast is like getting your best friends together and opening a nice bottle of wine and hanging out.
  • ck1963
    Love, love, love it ❤️⚽️
    Really enjoy the show from one of my favorite USWNT players. Julie Foudy is so fun to listen to and Lynn Ozowi (sp) is a perfect side kick to keep Jules in check and from eating all of the doughnuts.
  • cmktriplet
    Super great podcast!
    Julie and Lynne- totally enjoy all of your podcasts; super funny, enjoyable and authentic to the core. Keep up the great work. Been a fan of yours, Julie, since my Ajax playing days in SoCal. Now a fan of Lynne too. Great stuff🙏
  • DanInSanDiego
    This is an Outstanding Podcast
    I love listening to this, especially on my neighborhood walks. It always brightens up the day and brings a smile to my face. Thank you for this and what you are doing for women around the world.
  • Kelly.Mon
    This is what we need!
    This pod is the light we need during these dark days. The Horan/ Sonnett episode had me cracking up the whole time, please have those two on again soon!

    Anyone have water????
  • karina-7
    Love it 🙌🏼⚽️
    I absolutely love this and can’t wait to hear more of it. As a fan of the USWNT this is exactly what I want to hear. Their funny moments, their pranks, what goes on and off the pitch, and what makes them keep going. Thanks Julie for all that you do and for bringing joy to our life 🥰🙌🏼. Did I mention that I have two daughters and their names are Mia and Abby 😉🥰⚽️💕
  • Schneiderlein009
    MUST listen
    I am listening to a lot of different podcasts, especially running and fitness related. However, I stumbled about this podcast and it is just the perfect mix of fun stories (that really make you laugh out loud!) and inspiring background information.
  • cbrodeur01
    Something Good Came out of Quarantine!
    With no (new) USWNT games to watch, I got desperate and turned to podcasts 😂 I’m so glad I did!! I’m a pretty new fan, so the episodes with the current players have been such a treat. But it’s also been really great to learn about the ‘99ers and so many other amazing athletes in different sports. Just finished season 1, and I’m onto season 2... thanks for making my quarantine so much better!
  • vudiggity
    Best podcast ever!
    I am so happy I stumbled onto this as I was searching for more on USWNT. I first listened to the Alex Morgan and Kelley O’Hara interview and soon enough made my way through season 1 and champions week and am making my way through season 2. What an amazing and empowering concept. Julie and Lynn interview truly inspiring women and by the end you actually feel like you are friends with them (only in my dreams). I laugh often during episodes and have already re-listened to some. I love how authentic theses conversations are. I love that it doesn’t feel like a production or that it’s scripted. Please keep making these forever and ever! Proud to be part of this dope village!

    Greatest Podcast even on the pot(Toilet)
    This podcast is incomparable to any other because it gives off a vibe that you are a fly on the wall just listening in to great people. The environment is the most important factor for everything to grow and you guys have allowed listeners to grow and learn more about themselves from your own personal stories. This millennial age has destroyed appreciation and I just want Julie and Lynn to know that they are appreciated and admired for their attitude and work ethic. Us listeners couldn’t ask for more! I wish you two all the best with the best to be better than the rest! Much love 💕
  • grackall
