The One with Raven Saunders

It was hard to watch the Olympics in Tokyo and not know who Raven Saunders is. The Team USA athlete wore a collections of masks while competing that were inspired by Marvel Comics characters like the Hulk, and twerked in celebration after completing her final throw in the shotput. After clinching a silver medal, she crossed her arms in an X on the podium to represent the ‘intersection of where all people who are oppressed meet’ – and has used her platform to talk frankly about her own experiences of poor mental health, and her pride in being a black, gay woman. So, we really were spoiled for choice when it came to this conversation, which touches on all those things and so, so much more. We really think this chat will stick with you for a long time, and we’re so grateful Raven made the time for it. WANT TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR GUEST?
