I have provided interviews on gymnastics – its history, gendering, coaching, and abuse for several publications aimed at general audiences. I am also available for comment on women’s sport history and Cold War sport history more generally.
The End of Sport podcast interviewed me in July 2020 in response to the release of Athlete A, looking for more insight into the cultures within women’s gymnastics and their historical roots. Part one is available here and part two is available here.
