This week, we look back on the power of environment and the age old discussion of “Nature vs. Nurture.” Back in February, I was finally able to check off one of my Krush Most Wanted Interviews as we caught up with legendary Grand Master Chess Super Star Judit Polgar to talk about her incredible upbringing and how the developmental environment she grew up in destined her to be one of the World’s top chess players.
We also took a good hard look at the dark side of doping in sport, as the Russian Athletic Federation was caught running a state sanctioned doping program which got them banned from the Olympic Games. We spoke with our good friend David Howman the newly appointed Chair of the Athletics Integrity Unit.
Coming off this powerful episode with Mr. Howman I asked the question, “Are Your Kids Using?” As we looked at the alarming numbers of steroid and banned substance in school aged kids… The numbers will chill you to the bone. We spoke with Donald Hooten Jr. from the Hooten Foundation to get a better understanding of what is really going on.
A powerful recap of our 2017 campaign, I hope you enjoy this episode.
