Strong Woman Radio, Episodes 1-3

strong woman radio

Welcome to Strong Woman Radio, a sanctuary free of testosterone (except for a few special guests), where ladies who like to lift heavy things can chitchat about the struggles and success that comes with being a woman in a male dominated sport. We welcome listeners of all sports, be it strongman, Crossfit, olympic lifting or more; but be warned we don’t like running very much unless we are carrying or dragging something heavy while we do it.

Below are some brief notes from our inaugural episodes. Great news, you can download, subscribe to and listen to THREE episodes already! As you get familiar with the show, don’t forget to leave those reviews and ratings in iTunes, and send us your questions and comments via the comment form, which can be found here.

Enjoy the first three shows and lift on ladies!
