Sideline Talk is Ultiworld’s subscriber-only podcast about the people and personalities of ultimate. Charlie Eisenhood hosts long form, in-depth interviews with marquee figures in the sport.

Robyn Fennig is both one of the best players in the game today and the President of the USA Ultimate Board of Directors. After a long time competing in the Midwest (mostly in Madison, Wisconsin, where she lives), she’s started to widen her horizons: this club season, she’s playing with DC Scandal as they chase a club championship, and she’s also been playing with France’s YAKA in European and international tournaments.

Robyn talks about her background in sports, what it’s like to be a leader in a smaller ultimate community, and dealing with both a marriage and divorce in the spotlight of the ultimate community. Plus, discussion of her vision for USA Ultimate and where the sport is going next.
