Episode 35: Emily Cook on Overcoming Adversity

Release Date: May 31, 2018

Contributor Ben Jackson is back with another part of last fall’s interview with 3x Olympic Aerialist Emily Cook. Emily talks about overcoming adversity and returning from injury–and she had a doozy of an injury. Emily also talks about how to stay motivated and how to be OK if things don’t go according to plan.

Plus, we debut our  Book Club with contributor Claire Natsis. Claire’s first choice is the New York Times bestseller, The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
