A thoughtful important podcast!

Wendy is so thoughtful and kind in her interviewing. I’m so glad a podcast like this exists, especially since it’s hosted by one of my favourite raptors moms! Such a treat! There is without a doubt a need for more women’s voices in basketball, in sports in general. These moms contributions to their children, especially in elite level sports is massive: long drives, unconditional support and so much more. It’s so beautiful to be able to understand a player and their life better through their mother with this special podcast. Its always important to appreciate all the moms out there and their undying love and contribution to their children and who they grow up to be.

Great perspective

This is the type of podcast that gives you a point of view that just isn’t available at the moment. Terrific insights at the very least. Bravo!

Perfect idea!

This podcast has shown to be the only podcast focusing on NBA/WNBA mothers. Very cool concept!!

Personal experience

If you ever want a personal experience with the players mom from NBA and WNBA, this is the show for you! They give great answers and you get to know them on a more personal level! Great podcast!

Love this!

Absolutely love Courtside Moms. Such great insight into the players we all love to watch & follow on their professional journey. Wendy is an awesome host. Freddie Gillespie’s mom was one of my favs. T

I love this show, Wendy brings out the best interviews in these moms!

Must listen for anyone

Whether you’re a huge basketball fan, big on family, or just appreciate the modern day success story. This podcast is amazing you get to hear the human story from your favourite pro basketball players from their moms!

A lovely podcast

I am very happy to have discovered this podcast. It is a terrific listen. The interview style is fantastic and the stories are warm and inspiring. A great add for any basketball fan.

Fantastic podcast and needed perspective

Courtside Moms is the best! One of only three sports podcasts I listen to, and offering a completely unique perspective in basketball journalism. Every episode reinforces the fact that all these athletes (and really all celebrities) come from a family and a community supporting them, and gives so much context to players' journeys. Not to mention just the charm of the host, Wendy! Highly recommended.

Love this podcast

I love learning about the players in the NBA. It makes watching the games so much more interesting. This podcast is amazing. Hearing the moms talk about their kids is such a unique way to learn about the players before they were NBA stars.

Great behind the scenes perspective!

I really enjoy listening to these interviews with one of the most important behind-the- scenes people in a professional athlete’s career - their mom! I’ve always had huge respect for the moms who had to sacrifice so much so their kids could succeed. One of the reasons I watch sports is for the human element and the stories behind the game and this podcast is a great complement to that! I’m a mom myself too, so it’s also quite enlightening to listen to their thoughts on the challenges of raising successful kids too!

Fantastic Podcast

Such a wholesome and fun podcast!

Awesome and Unique Content

Court side Moms is like having coffee with friends!

Have just started listening to this podcast and love so much about it: 1) done by a Canadian Basketball Mom 2) diverse perspectives on the game and life off the court from those instrumental in players’ success 3) such authenticity in the conversations- I feel like we are sitting around a table and having a coffee chat Highly recommend this podcast- a delight to hear from all of the moms across the NBA!

Great Podcast

Hey I love the idea of getting a unqiue prepective of some of your favourite hoopers from some of the people that know them the best, their Mothers. The Marie epsiode is amazing, the emotions that were brought out were rare and real. Wendy is great as an interviewer and I would recommend this podcast to anyone. Be safe everyone!! Andrew
