Welcome to the Ladies Room - A Deadspin Sports Podcast.

Each week, we’ll talk about the latest in the sports world and beyond, chat with guests who have a lot to say, and generally hang out and have fun for 45 minutes.

This week, Deadspin Sr. Writer Carron Phillips sits down with Jane and Julie to discuss the now-infamous Rachel Nichols video, how we got it last year, why we reported on it the way we did, and how we feel about it, a year later, now that the NYT story has been published.


Obviously, a lot has been said (and hurled on Twitter) about our reporting. And criticism of media outlets is always valid. But we did want people to understand what our intent was, how many people were involved in the decision, and what constraints outlets have on them in a world where we’re used to seeing independent bloggers can post or tweet whatever they want.


New episodes drop weekly, and you can listen wherever you get your podcasts. If you like the show, we hope you’ll subscribe and leave a review over at Apple Podcasts. You can listen to Carron Phillips and every episode here.
