Show us the money!


On today’s episode of The GIST of It, hosts Ellen and Steph are talking about cold hard cash...and why the U.S. women’s national soccer team is still fighting to make more of it. 


With the U.S. Soccer Federation recently making headlines, we’re diving into what they’re now asking of the USWNT and USMNT, their fraught relationship with both teams, and the ongoing lawsuit against them.


Today’s episode is brought to you by our friends at Scotiabank. Alongside the Hockey Canada Foundation, ​​they’ve formed The Assist Fund, where $1 million dollars of funding will be available to eligible families to reduce registration and equipment fees. For more on this great cause, visit
