Live Feisty Media Launches Hit Play Not Pause – a Feisty Menopause Podcast

October 7, 2020

Selene Yeager, journalist, athlete, and co-author of ROAR will be the host of a new podcast designed to help performance-minded women stay strong and active through menopause

Victoria, BC— October 7, 2020. Live Feisty Media is releasing its 6th podcast, this time tackling the long-ignored subject of performance during menopause and beyond. The podcast is designed for active women who want to optimize their performance and feel fit and strong during their peri- and post- menopausal years, as well as coaches and athletic trainers who work with women.

The podcast will be hosted by Selene Yeager, a service journalism veteran who has been reporting on health, fitness, training, and nutrition for more than 25 years and has raced around the globe as a professional athlete. She was also the co-host of the Paceline cycling podcast.

Selene is thrilled to see this podcast come to life:

“As a menopausal athlete myself, I am surrounded by amazing women in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond who are essentially flying without a map. There’s plenty of information out there on how to train as a younger woman. There’s plenty of information about menopause in general. But information for active, performance minded menopausal women? We’re on our own. I’m excited to change that.”

Dr. Sara Gross, Ironman Champion & founder of Live Feisty Media feels that this is the right time to create a podcast around this topic because:

“Focusing more time and resources on women’s health and wellness is long overdue. Optimizing athletic performance during menopause is an area that frankly, needs to be built from the ground up. Active women in their 40’s and beyond are still getting information by word of mouth with very little support. Selene is the perfect person to source information, find the people who have knowledge on how to thrive during peri- and post- menopause and get the conversation started.  We simply refuse to ignore this demographic any longer.”

Upcoming guests include:

  • Rebecca Rusch, pro athlete, 7x world champion, best selling author, and Emmy winner.
  • Stacy Sims, researcher and co-author of ROAR
  • Erin Carson, Strength and Conditioning Coach
  • Chloe Murdock, DPT, Pelvic Floor Specialist
  • Mary Jane Minkin, a Yale University professor and North American Menopause Society Certified Menopause Clinician.

The first two episodes of Hit Play Not Pause will be live on October 7th and can be downloaded on all major podcast channels including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google and Stitcher.
