TBI-085 Feminism & Frozen Turkey Tossing with Dr. Gina Melnik

The Big Inside is back with it’s first episode after (yet another) hiatus!  A new format, a new opening theme, and an old guest bring us back to the podcast airwaves.  

On the eve of the “Queen Of The Summer Solstice StrongWman contest,” an all-woman’s strength competition in nashua, NH, the event’s co-organizer Dr. Gina Melnik, PhD. is back on The Big Inside to discuss the ideas behind why women in strength sports are so darn exemplary.  We explore the ideas of what women in the sport find such camaraderie – is it nature or nurture? – and look at what makes the women’s strength sports movement so compelling.  

(Apologies for our lousy audio; we’re still working out some kinks.)  For links to some of the things we talk about, go to www.TheBigInside.com. 

 Our old buddy, Dr. Gina Melnik.
