UN-Podcast 009: UNconditional


My mom at her Crossfit box

Hard to believe it, but we’re 9 episodes in. That’s a whole semester (for those of you out there who remember what it feels like to be in school!)

Today’s podcast episode is really special–with Mother’s Day just having passed, this episode is not only dedicated to our mothers, it also features them.

I remember when Ito and I were first talking about the guests we’d like to have on the podcast, from our friends and acquaintances to the big names in health, fitness, and wellness, and Ito said, rather off-the-cuff, “Wouldn’t it be nice to have our mothers on the podcast on Mother’s Day?”

And, frankly, it was nice. Ito and I each interviewed our mothers about what it means to be a mother, what it means to raise daughter, what it means to have a good body image–or to struggle with it, and so much more.

You can check out the podcast here, or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher Radio. Ito’s mom’s interview begins at 4:27 and my mom’s begins at 29:35.

Ito and I also hope that this inspires you to talk to your own mother (or mother figure or female mentor, etc.) about these topics. If you have your own “mother interview,” let me know how it goes in the comments!

Stay hungry,
