Welcome back to the athlete minded: stories podcast.
For today's episode, we step outside of the US and talk to Olympic Wrestler for Canada, Korey Jarvis. We spoke to him before Rio, and he talk to us this time about what it was like down in Rio from his personal experience. The media kept portraying it as this place that wasn't finished, but he said he had a great time.
Get in touch with him on facebook at Korey Jarvis, and on instagram at Korey.jarvis.
Alvin Pearman, Former NFL Player and Current Doctoral Student at Vanderbilt joins us to discuss his NFL career and what he is doing now.
Alvin's research focuses on urban schooling, social inequality, and neighborhood effects. His current research on education examines the impact of city-wide income inequality on schooling outcomes, the influence of neighborhood gentrification on disciplinary patterns in schools, and the role of neighborhood environments in shaping the efficacy of preschool interventions. Other projects examine the effects of neighborhood poverty on the mathematical trajectories of Black children, as well as descriptive analyses of the social and economic contexts in which urban schools are located nationwide.
Overall this was an amazing interview, and I hope we can discuss in more detail in the future.
Cubs Win! Cubs are World Series Champions for the first time since 1908!
I was outside of Wrigley Field for the Cubs win in game 5 of the world series this year, and was shocked when they finally won in game 7 in the 10th inning by one run.
So this episode is for the Cubs, and JDH.
