In the first roundtable discussion on The Other 51, Drs. Lauren Smith and Shannon McCarthy join Brian this week. It’s like the IACS Summit on Communication and Sport, only in podcast form (and without bacon and beer).
Lauren and Shannon talk about the paths they took to their current teaching jobs at Indiana University and the University of Central Missouri. Along with their research agendas, they both discuss how their experiences as college athletes influence their academic and professional work. They talk about what is interesting about social media in sports in 2018 and the challenges they face as women studying sports.
There’s also a discussion about human tacos.
For real. It’s a thing they all talk about.
