Podcast

Mickey Mics Up

Our Editor-in-Chief, Michaela "Mickey" Alfano, hosts Mickey Mics Up to talk all things women's sports, college football, and life as she embarks on her journey as a college student.

The main focus of this show will be women's soccer with the occasional insight into tennis, the WNBA, and gymnastics. Of course, my goal is to amplify women in sports so any big things will be talked about.

The shift from high school to college is a crazy time and I want a place to document, discuss and share it with everyone so a little bit of each episode will be dedicated to that.

Flashback Friday with Logan Olivia

Soooo this episode was actually filmed back in September. Sometimes life comes at you and things get put on the back burner and this just happened to be one of those things.

A Whole Lot of Fun with Maggie Yan

On this episode we are celebrating one year of Mickey Mics Up !!! I genuinely can not even believe that it has been that long but I am just so excited and blessed with all the guests I have had on and I can not wait to do more exciting things. In this episode I got to talk with my very own Creative Director and Co-Founder of Women's Sports Exchange Maggie Yan about college life during covid, how we got into soccer, and then of course our child that is Women's Sports Exchange. Since we spent time talking it about it, this felt like the perfect time to announce that Mickey Mics Up will not be part of Women's Sports Exchange. Nothing will change on this show except it will now be able to be found on wsportsxchange.com when we launch the site soon! Again thank you so much for one year of laughs, cool guests, support, and fun. Here's to year two!
