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.
Lindsay Czarniak welcomes new co-host and Olympic hurdler/bobsledder Lolo Jones. Lolo provides us with a training update as she prepares of the upcoming winter Olympics.
Lindsay and Lolo are then joined by Olympic gold medalist and the first woman to win gold in the 100m back to back, Wyomia Tyus. Wyomia speaks with On Her Turf about her protest during the “68 Olympic games and what she hopes her legacy can be. Finally, Kerri Walsh Jennings joins the show to discuss the impact of having the winter and summer Olympics so close to together and how it can affect the mindset of the athletes.
