Love it

What I love about this podcast is that you don’t have to be an athlete, or into sports, or be fans of Jen and Kristi the athletes or Jen and Kristi team extreme or anything to get something out of it. Yes they talk about sports, because that’s what they know, but they use sports as the lens to dive into issues that affect everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever watched any type of skiing. But I still get something out of this podcast every single week. They tackle some hard, relevant issues, like gender inequality or societal standards of beauty - things that are relevant to everyone. It’s relatable, Jen and Kristi are strong, funny and real people, as are their guests and they get you thinking while empowering you all at once. Definitely recommend this to everyone no matter if you love skiing or if, like me, it makes you cold just thinking about it.

Just what I needed

So much respect for these ladies. Super grateful they have created this podcast and platform.

Relatable!

Oh man, this podcast was what I needed! My life is a perpetual self-inflicted challenge (2 yrs as a self-taught sailor & liveaboard cruiser, then 6 yrs working in Antarctica, & finally now owner-builder of my first home nestled in the Colorado mountains). Needless to say, I go through rough patches & could use a pick me up. That’s when this podcast comes in handy. It reminds me, that if it’s worth doing, it’s probably going to be hard.
