Having been massively inspired during my interview with Lewes FC Director Karen Dobres for my debut podcast series Everyone Is Interesting, I decided to get in touch with the football club (the first in the world to pay the women as much as the men!) to help tell the amazing stories of the women on the team. So far this project has been incredibly inspiring, as we discuss what the secrets are to make confidence, what equality can look like on and off the pitch, how cheerleader figures can shape a person, whether star signs have anything to do with it, what romance looks like in the football world, using the game as a platform for social justice and how running around with a ball can positively affect the patriarchal systems that govern our society. It doesn’t matter if you like football or not, in podcast Behind Closed Doors at LewesFC, there are profound lessons to learn from these incredible women who show us how to have the balls to follow your dreams…
