Dawn Staley x Just Women’s Sports: Welcome to the “NETLIFE” Podcast

The national champion head coach and Basketball Hall of Famer is joining the Just Women’s Sports podcast lineup for the launch of “NETLIFE.”

South Carolina women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley already has a national championship ring, three Final Fours, six SEC Tournament championships, and an AP Coach of the Year award to her name — all following a playing career that included six WNBA All-Star appearances, three Olympic gold medals, and induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Now, she can add podcast host to her résumé, too.

Staley has joined the Just Women’s Sports podcast lineup to launch “NETLIFE,” JWS announced on Monday. Staley will serve as host and cover basketball, leadership, politics, and pop culture, with a star-studded cast of interviews joining along the way. Flame Bearers, which covers trailblazing women Olympians and Paralympians, will present the podcast.

“I’m thrilled to be launching “NETLIFE” with Just Women’s Sports,” Staley said in a release. “This team is incredibly talented and I’m looking forward to working with them to deliver meaningful interviews with individuals who have influenced my life, in hopes of inspiring listeners.”

Hall of Famer and WNBA legend Lisa Leslie will be the first guest on “NETLIFE.” She joins Staley in the debut episode to discuss life on and off the court, with topics ranging from Leslie and Staley’s shared Team USA experience to how Leslie uses her platform to impact change.

As one of the best and most visible coaches in college basketball, Staley brings an impressive platform of her own, and “NETLIFE” will be her chance to drive discussion in ways meaningful to her.

“Dawn is a one-of-a-kind figure in women’s sports with a powerful voice and a perspective that belongs in our industry-leading audio lineup, ” said Haley Rosen, Founder and CEO of Just Women’s Sports.

“NETLIFE” has been given the green light for a 10-episode run, and is the fourth podcast in the JWS audio lineup. It joins USWNT legend Kelley O’Hara’s “Just Women’s Sports Podcast,” “Snacks” with USWNT and Kansas City Current teammates Sam Mewis and Lynn Williams, and “Tea with A and Phee,” co-hosted by WNBA stars A’ja Wilson and Napheesa Collier.
