Dr. Scott Kretchmar is a leading sports philosopher world wide with more than four decades of experience in the field of exercise and sport science. His research interests include the role of games and play in human evolution and theory of mind and the intellectual requirements of sporting activity. He has played a key role in making sport philosophy a legitimate field of scholarship and study and has had a huge impact on the physical education/health profession. In today's episode, Scott and I dive deeply into a discussion that focuses on how physical educators can plant the seeds for all students to flourish in a PE setting and how they can help young people to create personal narratives that include physical activity, sport, and exercise as part of the ongoing stories that they create for themselves.

It was a pleasure to speak with Scott. He is an important mentor of mine and I always learn so much from our discussions.
