Pushing boundaries and empowering women along the way. The On Her Turf podcast highlights amazing women- and their male allies- who are champions on and off the field and who motivate people to be the best versions of themselves. Lindsay Czarniak, Lolo Jones and MJ Acosta-Ruiz will host the first NBC Olympics show dedicated to covering women’s sports at the Games. Katie Ledecky, Allyson Felix, Alex Morgan, April Ross, and Alix Klineman will be among athletes featured.
MJ Acosta-Ruiz and Lindsay Czarniak link up with two-time Olympic archer Mackenzie Brown after her bronze-medal match to learn her approach to the sport on the world's biggest stage.
Next, journalist Britni de la Cretaz and professional triathlete Rach McBride join the show for an insightful round table conversation on the impact of the first trans athlete competing in the Olympics and how sports can be more inclusive for trans athletes.
We then hear from one of the amazing women on this year's Olympic refugee team.
Finally, we say farewell to MJ!
