Beyond the Pickle extracts relevant clips from the Pickle Pod discussions and helps current student-athletes digest the concrete, useful insights and pocket wisdom applicable to their future journey.
The podcast host, Jack Sundberg, steers an inviting, impactful discussion with a team or group of Student-Athletes, helping them share their reactions and encouraging them to consider many of the guest’s sentiments of “If I only knew then what I know now.”
The student-athletes journey as in life is full of impermanence and imperfections. These former college athletes tell their own story about falling and getting up. Practicing what sport has taught them … mental toughness and resiliency to overcome and the internal motivation to be a better student-athlete and, more importantly, a better person.
