These Guys Get it
I have had the opportunity to meet Eben, Riley and Grant. Their genuine passion for preventing the suffering of other athletes during their career's and their retirement is obvious. They aren't afraid to talk about the tough topics that will ultimately change the game in a positive way.
A Very Important Conversation
Nate and Eben have created a space for all of us who played competitive sports to come together, to share our stories, and to connect with others who have had similar experiences. It is a community of recovering athletes. It is a community that is desperately needed and, thankfully, now exists.
Including spirituality, cannabis, holistic health, and healing is a significant piece of their work. This podcast dives into the dark places of athletic competition, of “corporate sports,” of injury and rehabilitation, and it leads listeners back into the light with wisdom, with experience, with love, and with compassion.
Nate and Eben have opened up the door for all of us who have played the games we love, and who have experienced the loss that comes with the end of our playing days, to reconnect with the games we loved and with people like us who gave so much to compete.
Spread the word! This is good stuff!
Been waiting for someone who understand my world! Keep GRINDING!
