Drumroll, please: A’ja Wilson and Napheesa Collier are joining the JWS squad.
Two of the WNBA’s brightest young stars are teaming up with Just Women’s Sports to produce season two of Tea with A & Phee, their widely acclaimed podcast documenting life in and around the WNBA.
A’ja Wilson, the 2020 WNBA MVP, and Napheesa Collier, the 2019 Rookie of the Year, first launched Tea with A & Phee in the 2020 WNBA bubble. Originated in partnership with Through The Lens, the show gave fans a behind the scenes look at life in the bubble, while also giving A’ja and Napheesa an opportunity to showcase their personalities and discuss timely and topical issues.
Season one guests included fellow basketball stars like Elena Delle Donne, Candace Parker, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Damian Lillard, as well as singer/songwriter Saweetie.
“The first season of Tea with A & Phee was so great,” said Collier. “We were learning an entire new skillset as podcast hosts, which was a fun challenge. Working with Just Women’s Sports will help take our show to new levels and will make Season 2 even better.”
“What I love the most about Tea with A & Phee is that Napheesa and I can be unapologetically us and give everyone an inside look into our lives on and off the court,” said Wilson. “We give a different perspective on the WNBA and love having guests who are just as passionate as we are about the growth of the W and the powerful women behind this league. We are excited to work with Just Women’s Sports because they understand the vision and the unlimited opportunity.”
Rest assured, the feeling is mutual.
“A’ja and Napheesa are two of the biggest stars in the game today. Behind the microphone, they have incredible on-air chemistry, and the show they’ve created is equally entertaining as it is insightful,” said Haley Rosen, Founder and CEO of Just Women’s Sports. “Tea with A & Phee is exactly the kind of content we want Just Women’s Sports to be known for, so I couldn’t be more excited to partner with A’ja and Napheesa in producing this one-of-a-kind show.”
Season two will launch in late May across all podcast platforms, including Apple and Spotify.
