    Dr. Jessica Gall Myrick was a 3 time all American distance runner while at Indiana University and went on to become a social scientist and full professor at Penn State University. We talk about her work studying Media Psychology and health and given her running background we dive into how it relates to women’s sports- which she is equipped to speak on. In 2020 she did a study to see what happens to audiences when commentators use sexist language around women’s sport .Links to Jessica’s published works including her text book and her articles via her website emotionsandmedia.com. She’s also currently needing feedback for a study on college athletes so we link her survey as well https://pennstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5zOXFRNpB19RFdk

Liberty track club

I just loved Molly's interview with the ladies of Liberty track club. As an older runner. I really appreciate hearing from ladies of my generation! Thanks Molly for a great interview!

Love their choice of diverse podcast guests!

In my opinion, Keeping Track is the top podcast focusing on women’s running out there. That is because they give a platform to pro runners who are women of color — people who have been overlooked by many of the other big running podcasts out there. The diversity of voices and opinions on Keeping Track is refreshing, and I appreciate the podcast’s willingness to tackle tough issues, such as talking openly about race in a very white sport. Hats off to the ladies of Keeping Track for highlighting excellent and interesting pro runners who bring a unique perspective to their sport!!
