Season 2 of Kickin’ Back has arrived, and we’re starting it off in style with Midge Purce! The NJ/NY Gotham FC star and United States international joins the pod for a fun and insightful conversation about embracing the NWSL villain role, her circuitous path to the U.S. national team via Harvard, speaking at the White House on Equal Pay Day, and serving as executive director of the Black Women’s Player Collective. Subscribers to The Equalizer Extra: Below, you’ll find bonus questions with Midge that are exclusively for you, our subscribers. We discuss fashion, film, food and more — the really tough stuff, like Midge’s bagel of choice. Sign in or subscribe to access that. It is bonus content that you won’t find in the full episode.
