Thanks to their incredible Euros 22 Championship win, the Lionesses have changed women’s football in the UK forever. Hands-up who cried with joy when they lifted the trophy? 🙋 In April, we launched our women’s football podcast ‘Quite Unsuitable for Females’ for the National Football Museum to coincide with the championship.
Since then it’s received some cracking attention and love including apple podcasts, BBC Radio2, The Times and The Guardian!
The women’s football podcast series was created with the dream team of Meg, Rosy, Uma and Debs, the Football Museum’s Community Producers. The brilliant team received podcast training from us and went on to make the 5-episode series about women in football, it’s colourful, yet fraught and frustrating history, the team’s own experiences, and what they think the future holds for the beautiful game.
Here’s a selection of that awesome coverage for the Quite Unsuitable for Females podcast…
BBC Radio 4Xtra – Podcast Radio Hour
Meg and Rosy took a trip to the BBC studios in Salford to talk to the BC R4 Extra’s podcast showcase programme ‘Podcast Radio Hour’. They’re interviewed as part of a special show about women’s football podcasts.

The podcast makes it on the hallowed ‘new and noteworthy’ list on apple podcasts. Not only that, but it was placed at number 1 on that list! Now, any podcaster will tell you that apple’s ‘new and noteworthy’ list is a pretty sweet place to be, because it’s not driven by charts or algorithms, it’s specially curated by the lovely dudes at apple!
The Guardian and The Times
Two big UK newspapers also get in on the action and recommend the podcast to their readers.
These guys are top eggs when it comes to showcasing podcasts and stuff going on in the podcasting community, so we’re delighted to be their ‘new pod of the week – get in!
