Ahead of the two 2024 expansion teams' first-ever meeting in the NWSL, Tamerra and Meg take a closer look at Bay FC and the Utah Royals. As we approach midseason, in their inaugural years, what are the two clubs doing similarly, and how are their approaches unique? To help get these answers, Kiki Pickett, the unsung midfield hero for the Northern Californians, stopped by to give the inside scoop on her rise from squad player to the scorer of a history-making goal at Wrigley Field. Then, USWNT legend and first-time head coach Amy Rodriguez hopped on the show to open up about the lessons she has learned from a tricky start to life in Salt Lake City, and how she is trying to implement a long-term plan. PLUS: Don't miss our interview with "low sock baller" Tobin Heath. The two-time World Cup winner chatted about why she is thriving in the media landscape, and what she thinks of Emma Hayes and the USWNT's chances at the upcoming Olympic games.

The trio unpack what it was like to witness teenager Lily Yohannes' breathtaking debut? How is Tierna Davidson maturing into a leader and important queer voice on the national team?

At long last, Emma Hayes is in the United States to officially begin her tenure as the head coach of the U.S. women's national team. And, there is a lot to talk about. Tamerra Griffin and Meg Linehan debate whether there has ever been an incoming coach with this much hype in the team's history. Is American soccer ready for a coach with this much personality? What was it like to spend an intimate hour in the company of Hayes in New York City? What should fans expect from her two opening matches against South Korea? Meanwhile, a new professional Canadian women's soccer league (the Northern Super League) was announced. So, Tamerra and Meg discussed first impressions, takeaways surrounding the branding, and what its creation means for Concacaf and North American soccer.
