EP17: Izzy Lynch and Tessa Treadway
Today, I’m talking to Izzy Lynch and Tessa Treadway. They are British Columbia-based pro skiers, and mothers.
Izzy, along with her sister Zoya Lynch, recently made a documentary called "Motherload."
It follows Izzy and Tessa as they wrangle with topics like grief, personal growth and a yearning for adventure—all framed around family life, and the “load” they must carry, as mothers, to guide their families through the life they are striving for.
EP16: Malindi Elmore — Canadian Olympian and Endurance Athlete
Let's talk about goals.
Let’s talk about what it takes to achieve at a high level for many years.
Let’s talk about aging. And shoes, too.
Today, my guest is Malindi Elmore.
Malindi is a Canadian endurance athlete. She’s an Olympian, a teacher, a mom. She has reinvented herself numerous times, athletically and personally.
Perhaps most notably, she competed in the 2004 Summer Olympics in the 1500 metre and is planning a return to the 2021 Summer Olympics in Marathon.

You're lost in the wilderness. You're scared. Maybe hurt?
Who do you call?

Today, I'm chatting with the team leader of NSR, Mike Danks.
We discuss NSR's new docu-series on Knowledge Network (Search & Rescue: North Shore), how search-and-rescue functions, how you can join and how you can avoid being the next call.
