Show Notes

This is the episode we learn everything we can from Sam Maniar, PhD. Sam is the founder of Center for Peak Performance (www.c4pp.org), sports psychologist to NFL/MLB/Akron Zips/Spire Institute, and host of the I Love to Watch You Play Podcast about youth sports.

We talked about the psychology of Simone Biles' Olympic decision and how that can be used as a touchpoint to talk to our kids about mental health in sports. Check in for everything from the importance on teaching youth how to handle stress to grilling Allan and Josh about talking too much.

Andy (@holtgreive on Instagram): Andy created a lot of good content today, but tapping is still kind of weird.

Josh (
@joshflagner on Instagram): Josh almost completely screwed up the show with technical difficulties and only appears in the first 20 minutes via the magic of being the only host who knows how to use the editing program.

Allan (
@allanfee on Instagram): Allan won MVP this episode for keeping things on track while Josh was struggling with technology (and drinking IPAs.).
