The host of Good Grief, Cheryl Jones, recently wrote an article for Open to Hope, a renowned outlet for writings related to loss and grief. With all the losses we are all experiencing across the globe, she had to express what has happened for her as she has attempted to absorb the weight of the violence. Taking a hopeful view of the human condition, Cheryl’s focus is to emphasize the importance of acknowledging and experiencing our grief, making room for the new while carrying with us all the loves and losses we’ve experienced.
Not very often do you get an opportunity to interact with one of the greatest athletes in the WORLD. I met Ryan Lochte about a year ago and realized I met a superstar, even after personally being a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams. He was very polite, showed no signs of arrogance, and generally looked like an extremely happy person. In this show, Lochte and I discuss his childhood, what it feels like to be on the heels of fellow Olympian Michael Phelps then surpass him as the face of USA Swimming, and of course what goes through an athlete’s mind and body when a Gold Medal is placed around his/her neck. Many other aspects of Lochte’s life will be discussed as well as we all get to know him better in an hour’s time. Who is his biggest inspiration? How can you eat a 10,000-calorie meal then go swim at such a high level, with minimal body fat? What charities are a part of his life? If swimming ended suddenly, what angle of a profession would Lochte pursue? Tune in 4/22/15 @ 1:00pm PT to Barely Controlled Radio and find out.
