'Kicking Down the Door' is Hawthorn's new podcast, showcasing the incredible people and stories within the club's women's football program.

At Hawthorn, we know we're ready for an AFLW licence, and after listening to the inspiring voices platformed in this podcast - the rest of the country will soon know too. It's time to kick down the door.

In episode 1, VFLW Captain Jess Trend and co-host Stephanie Edwards are joined by up-and-coming star Jessie Williams - Hawthorn's current leading goal kicker in the VFLW program.

The girls share their unique pathways into football, and discuss the opportunities that the creation and rise of AFLW has created for them.

Find out what its like to be named captain of your club, only to be dealt a season-ending injury in the opening round. Hear how a lifetime of varied sport achievements can lead to a rookie contract for an entirely different sporting code.

Articulate, reflective and thoroughly enjoyable. Listen now below, or search for 'Kicking Down the Door' on your chosen podcast provider.
