Did you know that OFFSIDE: Making HerStory isn't just about a book, telling one person's inspiring story, nor are we just about one sport, women's hockey, although that's how we got started.
In fact, OFFSIDE: Making HerStory has become what we call a sports equity movement, which means we want to share experiences from athletes and others who participate in all types of sports, particularly those that are unrepresented, in order to create a diverse, inclusive, accessible and equitable space for everyone to be able to share their own inspiring stories.
We're happy to announce that OFFSIDE: The Podcast is experiencing a resurgence, and we've already banked some awesome interviews with awesome guests that make us worth tuning into, whether that's watching on our YouTube channel or listening to our many audio options including our Spreaker channel run by producer Dave Briglio, who makes our podcast available on all of the usual audio channels as well (Apple, Spotify, Google, etc.).
To kick off our new podcast season, we're sharing our incredibly interesting conversation with five-time world champion Macmilton "Mac" Marcoux, a legally blind 25-year-old Para-athlete from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., who has already reached incredible heights in the sports world, including five world championship titles and two Paralympic gold medals in his favourite sport, alpine skiing.
