003- The Impact of Gay Rugby with Coach Dany X

On this episode of the pod, host Thomas Pierce is joined by his former (and likely future) rugby coach, Dany Samreth. Dany has been the head coach of the San Francisco Fog Rugby Football Club in San Francisco for the last ten years.  The pair discuss the influence rugby has had on their lives, the challenges that queer athletes face in sports environments, and dive deep on the potential that rugby and team sports  have to build community, confidence and purpose for queer and straight athletes alike. They also acknowledge the homophobia and misogyny present in sports in 2021.

A conversation that is both lighthearted and impactful with plenty of banter , this is an episode you do not want to miss!
