Ep. 7 – Michaela “Moody” Williams: Power On & Off The Track



Today we’re talking Roller Derby! For those who’ve never heard of the sport, roller derby is a FULL CONTACT sport. It looks like football but on roller skates.

My guest Michaela “Moody” Williams was selected from the Sydney Roller Derby Team and now plays for Team Australia. Team Australia went to the World Cup earlier this year. Australia placed second in the world out of 38 countries.

Moody says, “Roller Derby is like playing chess on roller skates while bricks are being thrown at you!”

Underneath the skill, strategy and desire to win -it’s also about so much more. It’s about being a part of a community. Feeling valued, included, visible and loved.

 


Ep. 6 – Catherine McGregor: Being Transgender & Loving Life



Catherine McGregor was born with a male body but intrinsically felt she was meant to be living and functioning as female. This is known as Gender Dysphoria.

She was;
-from a small conservative country town
-a military officer (a male dominated testosterone fueled career)
-a cricket player and commentator (had a high public profile)
-friends and work colleagues with the Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott
-in her 50’s
-and married to the love of her life.

Catherine McGregor had every seemingly obstacle stacked against her, but she finally gave herself permission to be herself and transitioned from male to female. This story is about being who you are – and the freedom and bliss that showers upon those who choose to live authentically.

To keep in the loop of her future endeavours; follow Catherine McGregor on social media, read her book, “An Indian Summer of Cricket” and check out the play made about her life story, “Still Point Turning: The Catherine McGregor Story“.
