por UNCUT

Benched is an UNCUT Podcast which aims to give female student-athletes their rightful voice in the world of college sports. By prioritizing the overlooked and the overshadowed, we shine a light on the challenges and stories pertaining to women in college sports. As male sports typically take center stage in the public eye, women's athletics ride the bench. It's our job to change that narrative.
