This week on the podcast, Jerry Lynch and John O’Sullivan answer some questions sent to us by our Patreon Podcast Champions. These are our biggest supporters, and we gave them the chance to ask us anything. The most popular type of questions revolved around some recent topics, including:

  • using physical exercise as punishment
  • do we need a national sports governing body in the US?
  • If my club or school does not align with my values when I am coaching, should I leave?
  • How do we improve grassroots coaching, and what should we teach them first?

We had a great time answering these questions and plan to do another one in the near future, so please become a podcast champion and send them our way for our next go. 


One special note: this week we surpassed 2 MILLION DOWNLOADS of this podcast which is amazing, and that is thanks to all of you incredible listeners who take the time each week to listen and share our work. We are even more fired up than ever to keep bringing you amazing guests and topics in the future, but we couldn’t do it without all of you. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thanks!!
