April 16, 2021 – Friends, USWNT teammates and snack aficionados Sam Mewis and Lynn Williams are teaming up with Just Women’s Sports to take listeners behind the scenes of their lives atop the soccer world as they compete for spots on the Olympic team this summer. Snacks, a new podcast hosted by Mewis and Williams and produced by Just Women’s Sports, will debut Tuesday, April 20 on all major podcast platforms.
Williams is the second-leading goal scorer in NWSL history, while Mewis is widely regarded as one of the world’s top players right now. On Snacks, the two will offer candid insight into their lives, their friendship, and their pursuit of Olympic gold, in a rare opportunity for fans to hear directly from two of soccer’s biggest stars during the prime of their careers.

“As fans, we can only wonder what it’s like to be one of the top athletes on the planet and competing for a spot on the Olympic team, so it’s a rare treat for athletes of Sam and Lynn’s caliber to pull back the curtain like this,” said Haley Rosen, Founder and CEO of Just Women’s Sports. “We’re thrilled and honored that Sam and Lynn have put their faith in Just Women’s Sports to help them share the stories behind their soccer journeys.”
“I’m so excited for Lynn and I to get to do this podcast together,” said Mewis. “We have so much we want to share and discuss on Snacks. Between our journeys with soccer, our time living together, and our passions off the field, I feel like this is such a good opportunity for us to really showcase who we are in an authentic way.”
“I can’t wait to do this podcast with Sam,” said Williams. “We were roommates for four years and during that time we talked about everything under the sun, and leaned on each other for support. Snacks will give listeners insight into our true authentic selves and our journey up until this point.”
