Throughout May, we're treating you to a selection of sporty Chops, in which: Jen chats to Sarah Train from Kick It Out about homophobia – and other forms of discrimination – in football; Jackie Forsyth and Claire-Marie Roberts about their book The Exercising Female and why we shouldn't be lumping men and women's bodies together as one giant interchangeable lump when it comes to sport (or, you know, anything); and we'll have a Women's World Cup Special featuring *gasps* Alex Scott.

In this episode, Jen catches up with Catherine Bond-Muir, CEO of the W Series, the brand new motorsport series for women, as well as drivers Alice Powell and Emma Kimilainen, to find out how the series got off the ground, and why it's so needed.
