In Episode 18, K Bo, Amy, and Duke spend some time chatting with a guest of a different kind—Olympic athlete and Virginia native, Marie Toussaint. Toussaint, a longtime New Jersey resident and graduate of the prestigious Monmouth University, takes time to talk about her preparations for the now-canceled 2020 Olympics (Tokyo) as well as the accompanying disappointment surrounding its cancellation. However, not one to be bested easily, Toussaint sheds light on her resilient mindset and undaunted determination that will prepare her for competition whenever the 2020 Olympics are rescheduled. In this episode, Toussaint also talks about her ventures in her second career as a beauty pageant contestant. The vivacious Toussaint compares and contrasts the distinctions and commonalities between both careers that are sure to be of keen interest to all listeners of the podcast.
