Every single athlete’s story is compelling: not only do we find out about the enthusiasm with which the athletes pursue their passion, but we also learn about how these athletes try to overcome sexism and ableism in sports, achieve pay equity, and serve as mentors to younger generations. I am looking forward to helping Flame Bearers grow into different directions beyond podcasting.”
