No, this isn't a show about winning games, improving standings, or breaking records; it's a conversation about purpose. Each week, we bring you the stories of elite athletes and their unique journey to the top -- when they fell in love with their sport, who mentored them along the way, and what brings them meaning and fulfillment outside of competition. They are powerhouses not only in their arenas, but in their teams and communities because they are tapping into what gives them purpose beyond performance. And they are sharing it with you -- and us -- every week on the Hope Sports show.

Cool Concept

Unique look at sports thru the lens of the athletes themselves. Looking forward to future episodes!

Great first episode.

I am not a frequent listener to podcasts, but that is going to change going forward. The first episode with Andrew East was a great look into the life of an elite athlete, and will certainly be followed by more intriguing guests. Laura does a great job guiding the discussion, and being an elite athlete herself, she can relate, and tap into the struggles, and triumphs that come from life in sport.

So good

I can’t wait to hear more! Hearing from theses guests is so inspirational. You really get a chance to hear their stories and how it affected them and how they endured.
