Sizing up Soccer's future with Karina LeBlanc
41 min
As goaltender for the national team, Karina LeBlanc was part of the generation that put  Canadian soccer on the world map. Olympic medals, World cup expectations, the sky’s the limit.  But for LeBlanc, it was never just about the play on the pitch. Even in the big wins- her team aimed beyond the game of the day. The really big idea is to make women’s football a force for global change. Helping young women, particularly, assess themselves in a new light,  once they get the chance to participate in the world’s game.
Since becoming Head of CONCACAF Women’s Football,  LeBlanc has had the privilege and pleasure to see it happen again and again in the 41 countries that represent the FIFA  association. A shy girl comes to the pitch for her first time, and within a few hours, sees herself as a player, with all the confidence, enthusiasm and strength that goes with it. Player’s Own Voice podcast host Anastasia Bucsis leads Karina LeBlanc through a refreshingly optimistic conversation about a career in sports that even now still feels like the best is yet to come.

Week 6: Food isn’t medicine (and you consume way more than what you eat)
Every Day, We’re Served Up The Poison Punch That Is Diet Culture. What to eat and how to exercise to lose weight. Which bodies are acceptable, and which bodies aren’t. This diet. That diet. Body shame. Fasting. Micro tracking. More body shame. And every holiday season, this poison punch gets spiked. New year, new you? More like new you, same BS. Spoiler alert: This poison punch isn’t going away any time soon. So, we’ve created the antidote for it. BADASS LADY GANG, MEET ‘TIS THE SEASON TO DITCH DIET CULTURE. This free 8-week long course was created by Badass Lady Gang Co-Leader Kayla Reynolds, MS to empower you to navigate the holiday season in a way that's truly healthy -- mind, body, spirit -- no punch necessary. Every week we’ll explore a specific theme and equip you with concrete tools that you can use to jingle all the way to a memorable holiday. Here’s how we’re going to break it down: * Week 1: Ditch the disguise (because diet culture is sneaky AF) * Week 2: Diet is a noun and food isn’t the enemy - let’s bust some myths * Week 3: Detox your judgments… your liver and kidneys will do the rest * Week 4: People suck!!! Dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge their projections * Week 5: Breakthrough the shit - if you want different, you need to do different * Week 6: Food isn’t medicine (and you consume way more than what you eat) * Week 7: No one knows you like you do! How to listen to your body in a noisy world * Week 8: What if self-love wasn’t the goal? Let’s start with self-care And here’s what’s in store: * A newsletter every MONDAY morning introducing the weekly theme, including journaling prompts and a challenge to put your knowledge into practice * A NEW podcast episode released every MONDAY morning (via the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast. Available wherever you love to listen to your favorite podcasts!) * A Group Zoom call every WEDNESDAY 8:00 pm-9:00 pm ET (5:00 pm-6:00 pm PT) to discuss the weekly theme, and our experience with the journal prompt, challenge, and anything else that came up, in a safe space * Journal prompts available in our private, online community ‘Tis the Season To Ditch Diet Culture group (CLICK HERE to join) and on the Badass Lady Gang Instagram page. Whether this is the first time you’ve started to think about the ways in which diet culture has impacted you, whether you’re skeptical that ditching diet culture is possible, whether you’ve done every diet in the book and are ready to leave it all behind, or whether you’ve never fallen for the false promises of diet culture but are sick and tired of all the noise, this course is for you! This course is meant to meet you wherever you’re at in your journey towards ditching diet culture, reclaiming the word diet, and making peace with yourself and your body. We want to make sure that this course is as valuable as possible for you, so we want to dedicate one to two of our weekly podcast episodes to answering your burning questions about diet, diet culture, nutrition, body shame, dealing with people, making peace with food, being kind to yourself, and anything else, really! We’ll also try to bring some of these questions to our group calls to help us have more meaningful discussions. To submit your questions, CLICK HERE to submit your question. MEET KAYLA REYNOLDS, MS Kayla Reynolds is a late-twenty something New York City transplant, originally from Montreal, Canada, and the co-leader of Badass Lady Gang’s NYC chapter. When she’s not dancing with her BALG, she’s working on checking off walking every street of Manhattan by foot, exploring one neighborhood at a time, and determined to find NYC’s best cold brew and restaurants along the way. As a child and eventually teenager, Kayla joined every team sport imaginable, and cheerleading quickly became her passion. Growing up very active and also experiencing many digestive issues, she became interested in nutrition and the impact that food had on the way she felt and performed. Paired with her love of all things science, she eventually chose to move to NYC to pursue her Master of Science in Human Nutrition at Columbia University. It was there, alongside her own life experiences where she realized that the food that made it to our plates is only a sliver of the health equation. Over time, her passion for mental health and wellbeing grew, and she began to see our “diet” as more than just food, but everything that we consume -- social media, advertisement, relationships, self-talk, … and so much more. Now, when it comes to nutrition, she believes that our thoughts about food, our bodies, and ourselves impact us more than any one food we eat (or don’t), and that having a healthy, balanced, low-stress relationship with food is most important. Food doesn’t need to be so complicated. So, she’s dedicated to helping people ditch diet culture and lead full, fulfilling lives, which can’t happen on an empty stomach.

5-MINUTE FRIDAY: About the Time I Drank Champagne In the Bathroom
This week, I rode my bike near one of my old favorite spots. Known for complimentary champagne service in the women's bathroom and their soup dumplings (also, as a bougie New York establishment catering to A-listers and the well-dressed), Beauty & Essex was one of my go-to picks when I first moved to New York City back in 2012. I haven't been back in years, until this week, when I rode by it en route to find caffeine post-workout. Today, I'm reflecting on my early days In this magical city, thinking about how the times of changed, and finding some gratitude for what was (and, what is).  SOCIAL @hurdlepodcast @emilyabbate Hurdle Feedback Survey MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE WATCH: Barack Obama and Steph Curry on IG Live WATCH: A Match Made In Hell READ: 65 (Productive) Things to Do When You’re Bored At Work WATCH: The Undoing on HBO LISTEN: Trained, Harnessing the Power of Your Mind with Alia Crum  OFFERS LMNT | Head to to check out my go-to electrolyte beverage today.

60| Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology – with Dr. Bryan Kolb
The book Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology was born of a need that Dr. Bryan Kolb recognized while completing his postdoctoral fellowship at the Montreal Neurological Institute with Dr. Brenda Milner. Dr. Kolb had asked his colleagues for a textbook on the human brain and, finding none, decided to create a course about “neuropsychology.” Now, Drs. Kolb and Whishaw’s textbook is about to be released in its 8th edition. John and Ryan talk with Dr. Kolb about his book, the contribution of animal research to human neuropsychology, the importance of the history of our field, advice on working with a co-author, and much more.
