Show Notes

How race affects sports and basketball is what basketball star and entrepreneur Allen Kehinde Aragbaye tells us about today as he joins Alexandra and Lenya in discussion, but it’s also way more than that. Listen as they discuss the path for someone to be able to play professional sports, how the schools and coaches prepare the athletes for only certain things, and what's missing from a child's real-world education as they pursue their passion. Allen Kehinde Aragbaye is a former Division 1 basketball player and spent over 17 years dedicated to playing the game, so he knows exactly what it’s like to devote your entire life to the singular goal of making it to the NBA. He is a current Personal Development Coach and author of forthcoming book: Transition Game. As a former college basketball player, Allen understands firsthand the difficulty of transitioning from sports to the real world. As a result, he has made it his life’s mission to ensure former basketball players are prepared to transition after sports.

Already Ranting

Your favorite ladies are back at it again! And jumping right into it with fresh rants and raves. Well, not many raves, not much to rave about, but plenty to rant about.   Lenya has a big decision to make. She was invited to the USA Power Lifting competition, but they ban trans people. So she’s weighing if she should go and try to speak up about her views, or not go in protest. There are difficult and strong views on both sides. What do you think, listener? Let us know via email or social! We want to hear from you.   Alexandra got some frank news from her doctor, and it was a bitter pill to swallow. Listen in and hear exactly what he said, and how it went down.   --   Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.

Still Processing the Dobbs Decision

Still Processing the Dobbs Decision   Just a nice easy laid-back episode about abortion. We need to talk about vaginas more, and this is the perfect place to start.   Alexandra and Lenya both share their own abortion stories, and discuss the anxieties of kids coming of age in a society that restricts abortion.   Alexandra also reads an incredible poem by Jacaranda School for Orphan’s student Felicia Luciano called Our Members of Parliament. A poignant and direct statement in beautiful language.   https://www.plannedparenthood.org   --   **We want to hear from you!** Let us know how you’re speaking about these issues with your friends. **Let us know what topics you want to hear!**   Email us at [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])   You can find us at: [WomenBridgingtheGap.com](https://womenbridgingthegap.com)    Lenya’s Tik Tok: [@lenya_styles](https://www.tiktok.com/@lenya_styles   Or on Instagram: * Find Lenya at: [@lenya_styles](https://www.instagram.com/lenya_styles) * And Alexandra at: [@a_xandra17](https://www.instagram.com/a_xandra17) and [@thewritingleap](https://www.instagram.com/thewritingleap) * And the show is at: [@women_bridging_the_gap](https://www.instagram.com/women_bridging_the_gap/)   This podcast was edited by Brendan Hutchins from Podcast Advocate.
