    Offroad Racing with LJ!

    "Any day we get to ride is a good day." This episode we got to chat with LJ, aka Jackalope13 Racing, who has been racing Texas offroad for 39+ years! It was so fun to learn about this sport from such a passionate athlete and advocate for more women to get into racing! She's a champion, she's a badass, she's a joy to listen to and we know you'll love her racing stories! LJ shares how racing was a family sport - her mother and father were incredible racers themselves - and how she works to create a safe space for women who ride.  #livetorideanotherday

    Niamh Tallon w/ Her Sport

    This episode we chat with Niamh Tallon, founder of Her Sport - Ireland's only media platform dedicated to women in sport! Founded in 2018, Her Sport aims to inspire women and girls of all ages to participate in sport, encouraging them to try anything from running to ultimate frisbee, football to softball.

    Tallon started the platform due to a clear underrepresentation of women’s sport in the media. Currently just 6% of sports media coverage is given to women which has a critical rippling effect. Without airtime and coverage female athletes lose out on sponsorship, fans and opportunities. By the age of 14, girls drop out of sport at twice the rate of boys. This is not for a lack of passion or skill. Women and girls’ sport are under-promoted, robbing young girls and boys of role models they can aspire to be like. Her Sport aims to give young girls and women the platform to celebrate and champion their achievements and share their stories.
