The Big Inside
About This Show
Take your body seriously, because we sure won’t. This is the show that smashes real world culture, science and society with the niche world of strength sports, fitness and bodybuilding – and then turns them both inside out! Mainstream meets muscleheads, social psychology smears into strength sports and no question is too bizarre. One part satire, one part curiosity, a little bit of bodybuilding and a whole mess of ridiculous, we’re all about the conversation, not the education, but you till might just end up learning something along the way. What makes you big is what’s on the inside; welcome to the Big Inside.

The Big Inside is back with it’s first episode after (yet another) hiatus! A new format, a new opening theme, and an old guest bring us back to the podcast airwaves. On the eve of the “Queen Of The Summer Solstice StrongWman contest,” an all-woman’s strength competition in nashua, NH, the event’s co-organizer Dr. Gina Melnik, PhD. is back on The Big Inside to discuss the ideas behind why women in strength sports are so darn exemplary. We explore the ideas of what women in the sport find such camaraderie – is it nature or nurture? – and look at what makes the women’s strength sports movement so compelling. (Apologies for our lousy audio; we’re still working out some kinks.) For links to some of the things we talk about, go to www.TheBigInside.com.
