    E99: Courtney Gorum (Volleyball/Madison College/2nd chances)

    E99: Courtney Gorum (Volleyball/Madison College/2nd chances)

    In this episode you'll hear about a true comeback story that's nothing short of inspiring. Former Wisconsin Badger volleyball player Courtney Gorum's journey is a testament to the power of second chances and unwavering determination.

    Courtney's initial volleyball career at Wisconsin was met with challenges as she never had the opportunity to step onto the court due to medical retirement. However, her passion for the game never waned. Last year, she took on a role as an assistant coach at Madison College, working alongside her former teammate Mallory Stone. Little did she know that a casual joke would turn into a remarkable reality.

    Courtney discovered that she had two years of eligibility remaining and seized the opportunity to reignite her volleyball career. Now, she's back in action with the Wolfpack, not just as a player but almost serving as a player/coach on the court.

    And here's the incredible part - Courtney is dominating the game. She's not just playing; she's excelling. In fact, she's in the top 15 nationally for total kills. Her story is a testament to her resilience nature and the unyielding pursuit of one's passion.

    I hope you enjoy this incredible story, and I hope it serves as a reminder that it's never too late to make a comeback and rise to the top.

Great guests and interviews

If you’re a fan of Wisconsin Sports, this is definitely a great podcast to follow. I was a big fan of Jon while he worked with Mike Heller on a sports talk radio show in Madison. For whatever reason, the station let Jon go, and my favorite sports talk show was no longer. I was happy to see Jon land on his feet with this podcast. I love the variety of guests and Jon is always good natured while asking interesting and insightful questions. Definitely worth your time to listen!
