Back in October I announced I was joining forces with Kailee Cavaliere of The Sports Passport and we were starting our own podcast, Belles of the Ball. For many of you this was a surprise because, our founder, Jessica Bidonde (Ceresino), had a podcast, but I said I probably wouldn’t have one because it wasn’t really me, and blah, blah, blah – now look at me. To be honest, I used to prefer to listen to different podcasts and hear other people. Now, the podcast is my favorite place to really unwind and let all the thoughts in my brain just come out. I never thought I’d refer to myself as a podcaster. Kailee and I have fun with our airtime. It’s 30 minutes to an hour of us just chit-chatting and catching up, and also talking sports industry things with guests. In addition to BOTB, I do listen to other shows. Here are my favorite podcasts that you should check out. And no, they’re not all sports related.
R2C2 – I literally listen to R2C2 weekly. Episodes will drop and I am listening to it. On the treadmill, in the car -wherever. R2C2 is hosted by C.C Sabathia and Ryan Ruocco. They talk everything baseball, and more. Listening to a completely unfiltered C.C. Sabathia is fun, and even more fun when he has former teammates and other athletes and analysts on the show. Ryan and C.C. compliment each other really well, with their player/broadcaster balance. Any sports fan will love this show. Click here to listen.
Dani’s Dugout – Dani’s Dugout is one I started listening to after I started following her on Instagram, is Dani’s Dugout with Dani Cipolla. It’s perfect for a Yankees fan. She knows her yankees history, and knows baseball even more. Give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed. Click here to listen.
A Guy and a Girl Talk Sports – Nothing is more fun than listening to a male and female perspective on sports at the same time. Chad and Stef talk sports and give their perspective of sports news and reviews of some of your favorite sports stories. If you wanna fun episode to listen to, check out episode 44 featuring me! We talk the first episode of the 30 for 30 series, Lance. Click here to check it out.
Bitch Bible – Jackie Schimmel is my best friend, she just doesn’t really know it. Bitch Bible is so much fun to listen to, it’s easy, unfiltered and witty. Jackie Schimmel shares her real thoughts on EVERYTHING. If you don’t already, you have to follow her on Instagram to watch her IG Story, which is just as funny and unfiltered as her show. Click here to listen to Bitch Bible.
Work Party – I am a huge fan of Create & Cultivate and I have attended multiple C&C events over the years. Jaclyn Johnson has built a a platform for women to create and “cultivate the career” of their dreams through women empowerment and giving women the ability to work on their terms. If you want, you can check out the book Work Party, and listen to the podcast today.
After Orange Slices – One amazing thing about Instagram is it is powerful and can lead you to other podcasters that you aspire to be like. After Orange Slices is hosted by Bridget Case, a former San Diego Chargers cheerleader turned sports caster. AOS talks all sorts of things sports and other topics like mental health. This is a show you don’t wanna miss. Click here to listen and catch up.
