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 and Lolo Jones interview Dr. Natalie Brown, a British researcher who specializes in the study of how menstrual cycles affect performance. Together they learn about how women's hormonal changes during their menstrual cycle affect their nutrition and other aspects of their training.
Later they are joined by Paralympic Swimmer Mallory Weggemann and 3-time Paralympic Volleyball player turned NBC analyst Kari Miller-Ortiz for a roundtable discussion to preview the Paralympics. Mallory and Kari talk about overcoming the barriers facing women athletes in Paralympic events, and remind listeners that "we are one Team USA."
