66. ON HER MIND – NETBALL CONTROVERSY
In this debut episode, Sam Squiers delves deep into the biggest issues facing women in sport.
This week Sam looks into the sponsorship saga that has enveloped Netball Australia, and the steps that led to the sport losing most of the $15 million it was set to receive from Hancock Prospecting.
Journalist Selina Steele has been right in the middle of the story, and she brings insight to the topic, from the environmental concerns surrounding Hancock Prospecting, to the impact the deal was set to have on Indigenous communities and players.
Sam and Selina also question the responsibilities of all athletes and sporting administrations when it comes to striking deals across elite sport.
