"I know that for me. That's that's what this has been for me. I've been in. It's my balanced. It's a thing that 'cause i'm or to i like to be heard. Don't get me wrong but one of my life challenges is to listen and to try to listen as closely as i possibly can especially to those people who don't have a voice or don't have a platform or find themselves in a marginalized position where they don't have the privilege of white men walking around the world that whenever you speak people listen right you know. One of our friends recently said. I'm like yelling into the wind. That nobody can hear me and she happens to be a black woman and it's right she's right and all of us have these proximity to power that i think we have to get really real with so i don't know i believe that you reap what you sow in a lot of ways and dan levy my agent. He said to me one time about parenting. I mean it's one hundred and fifty percent all the time like. What are you talking about like you. Don't break from parenting. it's just all in and that was the best advice. I think that might be the real real on life like if you want a good life if you want success there is a cost right. Sometimes it's money. Sometimes it's time but in order to get what you want. You gotta you gotta get real real quiet. Listen to yourself and then i think what we as a culture need to do is start listening to each other. Don't we all just want to get through this stage. Where in to the other side like. Let's do it. Let's collectively agree like we don't want to stay here. We want to get to the good part. Amazing will thank you for that Especially coming from the athlete. Who made a goal that was coined the the header around the world. So you were heard around the world in in the greatest amplification possible in the global game of soccer.

"Really great experiences across your social Communicative experiences and kind of like talk to each other and play live. It's a great like modeling of of fun and introspection and kind of curiosity and shown a range of emotions together. Five years in. I would imagine that you with the same kind of intensity to me when i think about you guys. It's challenging relationship norms and not like that the history of marginalising the community in that. Like you know terrible. Kind of generations worth of ostracizing but relationships as a whole and what we can hope to have and you know i think a norm is calling early relationships honeymoon phases and getting to know each other and the excitement and that settles off and there's expectations. Same thing we have in sports. And you've been one that they've always not only challenged hunched straight through them and we all struggle with ship. So how is is your relationship. Continue on with glennon so wonderful. And i know you all share all sides of it which is equally as important. Yeah i mean. I think one early on in our relationship we were speaking with this woman and We're like we don't know when to tell the world like how do we do this and she just like. You don't have to say anything you just have to be. You don't have to tell people you're in love you just have to be in love and over time one of the greatest things like it's almost a revolutionary thing that we've been doing we didn't know it. It wasn't like our plan but these little videos these little snippets of our lives that we show the world They are true. They're not like planned or anything. They're true and they're also compatible across every relationship because relation is it doesn't matter what gender you are or what faith you are or any of it right. So it's like what's been so fascinating to me is so many men responding like oh. I'm glennon in this situation or i'm team abbey here. I'm team clinton here like god. This is hilarious. Right because glennon and i from from the looks of it are like. Oh abbes more butch. She's more fem so like of course. I'm going to take more masculine behaviors and stuff but like actually. I don't like spiders and stuff so glennon has to like take care of that. 'cause it's comedy right like the. It's like one of the first questions she asked when we got another relationship. She's like some new to this gay culture. Mike who gets spiders like i don't know what's going to happen here in so we approach it with with joy and love and you know humor. 'cause that's like that's life you know and i don't pretend to know or be an expert at relationships by any means but what we do and we have chosen to do with our life is to show our humanness to show our messiness in all of its glory and not be ashamed bit. Both of us are sober. We both in terms of living sober life. Living a shameless life is the way out of any kind of suffering. So no matter what it is like she'll be doing something. I'm like hold on a second. The world needs to see this craziness right on. And i think it's just been so fun and unique for us to kind of develop our ways. I mean we believe that most relationships have about or five fights in them. They might come out in different ways but they're about the same like every single fight is usually about one thing or another that you and your spouse are dealing with an and we'll deal with forever so if you can figure out in point out what it's really about like get to the truth the truth of it and then it takes the steam out of it so early on in our relationship. We take more fighting. We're fighting. we're fighting like dressed past like the honeymoon stage and we couldn't figure out how to get our way through it and it's like oh no this is the same thing. This is the same place. So it's like. Oh this is the thing that probably i'm not. My behavior is not going to change. Because this is who i am. And i'm just gonna keep bringing more awareness to it in the same things like. Oh it's your behavior. It's probably something that you're not gonna change but you're gonna just keep bringing to it but like it hurts my feelings in for for lesbians like we just don't stop talking like ever to women who are introspective and spiritual into that stuff so yeah. I'm proud of us. And i'm also not an expert so take everything or just leave. It doesn't matter to me. I've listened to elaine de batons. Say something similar that if you can identify kind of pinpoint the problems or the stuff that you have to live with in your and it'd be good with that then the relationship's gonna be fucking great. Yes that's it. I talked too loud. I interrupt snore. And sometimes i don't have. I'm not consciously thinking about other people. Glennon is always consciously thinking about other people so sometimes i'll start a sentence. She'll have to like put her hand on my leg. Like have you thought about everybody in this room before you go down this road you now. And that's just like that's who i am so their stuff that like that comes up and it just she gets annoyed. And i'm like this is the volume of my voice. I don't know what to tell you. I think basically all i will be doing for the rest of my life is whispering. And that's what she's beating me into a pulp getting me to just whisper. I think this is what she wants. Whatever the thing about where relationships sometimes build up is around resentment. And and what's so amazing about this is we tend to if we can if we're lucky enough to to scratch to the bottom of the surface. It is really small things that we never addressed and they build up and then they become real issues. I can identify with you and love that partnership a- glennon brings to you around awareness of other people and identify with you because it's the way were groomed in sports. I mean we think about how we can impact the team and we think about our team but we don't think beyond our team because actually heat the other team out. That's why we're built in life. We actually need to think about the other team and other teams because their feelings matter and that's big in business is it's not as cut throat as sports. Although some boardrooms might be but will finish kind of with this. And i like how you talked about the idea of crossover. So just any. Like harding. Words on spirituality sports and self discovery. And how you say. They're all integrated and we want to not only grow as athletes and growth in the athlete. Lexicon is improve our skills but the big thing in life no matter the industry is wanting to be heard and the challenge. There is waiting to be heard. It can feel narcissistic from time to time. And like why do i need to be hurt. But there are some deep connections there around being seen being heard whether it is tied to the political divisiveness in our country. Right now whether it's two centuries of oppression of marginalized groups or whether it's just in a relationship with our intimate partner. What's your path like. How often do you think about that. For life integration. And where you at now. Yeah i think that the concept of life work balances b. s. I things just life and you just got to figure out how to manage your life and work Figure out what works best for you. I know that. I'm lucky to have a family in an environment where i get to decide because i've basically been my own boss my whole life and in terms of the full roundedness of humanity and being heard. I think that's a really important thing. The belief that idea. And then the follow through on that concept because it works for our own individual cells and then it works for the world right. What gets stuck right now especially in this political divisiveness that you talk about is everybody wants to individually be heard the social media platforms at are magnifying That relentless desire to be heard but what we want from an individual level is something that we are not willing to give in terms of hearing other people. So it's just everybody's shouting at each other right. And i think that that is why this pandemic has kind of come into our lives. We've all been shouting but have we been doing enough.

Which is exactly what you're saying when you're like. Oh it makes me feel the best about me. Because i think that's where i met at this point where i'm like. I am so over hating my body.

Eleven would tell me if you can shrink time between doing the thing that you know to do. Don't say you're abbas between the knowing in the doing like when you have to do the because the space between the knowing and the doing is misery yes right and we all push that space as long as possible which is why we're all miserable.

"Competition requires dedication before enduring.

"With mental struggles emotional struggles of being an environment or it's hard to imagine given how money times humans get colds or or even just sort of any random ailment. Think that at some point in your life you're not going to be affected by mental illness. It just doesn't seem even remotely possible to be able to avoid that. Actually it's silly. It's very silly getting to the point where we understand that you know. Physical health isn't jusque physically sick people we all and mental health isn't disturb mentally. Ill like we all have rained yet. We bring hillard to nurture and take care of it and we're mentally different. Well i let myself mentally ill. It feels like if i come in in mentally ill makes. It seem like. I'm about to get better not debbie or not or you're really really fit you just have to cope with better and i agree. Okay well we'll rebrand this. So last thing i want to talk to you about. If you're willing sex okay so this is what you wrote about. Sex pre abbey in untamed. Sex marriage is like an oil change. You just have to keep doing it to keep things running smoothly and later on you go onto state. That sex was a stage and i was the player. I knew how to be desired. I did not no desire. I knew how to be wanted. I did not know how to want. Then when you talk about this lack of joy with your ex husband your therapist ask you if you had tried giving him blowjobs instead. She stated that many women found blowjobs to be less intimate. You then promptly left the therapist so my question to you is this and it's a really serious one and one that i i have personal interest in understanding. My question is how did you learn desire. I want to know. Oh we're talking about the stuff. I think that as started to understand. Desire i think desire was what i felt during their. She mama like i think been woke up in me. That looks like i want her like it wasn't like i want her to want me. Which is how. I had always understood this situation of lake. How rang up. And how you you just find somebody who's kind of like checks boxes and the need to get them to like you and then whatever it was a visceral like i want her and then when we admitted to skip getting more and more intense. Oh my god well especially all those months leading up anticipation guide. You must have destroyed. That hotel room debbie so it was so intense and then in the first and this is making her crazy she is so get so ameris. Talk about this stuff in public and private way and i can't talk about it hyperactivity i still that so interesting. Oh my god. That's so interesting it's sad to me. It's a common barest to talk about it. What one i don't know anyway. Well that's that's the whole notion of asking about desire because there seems to be some shame in wanting things in asking for what you want and engaging in that kind of pleasure rooted Sunday all women have to deal with right like going after what you want and being saying at yes so so then when the first time that we were together in the hotel room it was the first time that desire completely took over and then i was not acting. I didn't even understand what sexless without active. Meaning that when i was happy. I'm so sorry. I'm gonna say this when i was having sex previously which didn't happen i would i would say to myself was okay this time supposed to be. This is the the noises. I'm supposed to be making this time was to be moving. This is what i should do. Or say or a okay. And then with abby an invite away i was to say this guy. I'm going to say this. W litters fantastic. And i've just forgotten that there's like a lot of other people listening but i think that since abbey was like the more experienced lesbian relationship meaning she had any experience. I think we both assumed that when we finally got together in that hotel room that she would be the like arm dog one taking over in. That was not the case. How awesome indicate surprising for you. Yes okay now you. I don't know the question was never had an issue. No i i never bought into the whole ademi's fairytale that women aren't supposed to go after a long always been of the mind that there's gonna be things that are going to be harder because i'm a woman but i sure as hell am hallways to go for what i want and then being in an environment like limitations team where you see extra about sexy. She's talking about the national noted down noted she's going to soccer. Yeah well you're around people and the world tells you you're alive you should us you. Should we just like whatever. We don't care if you're telling us we can't have what we want to go ahead and go build it in And so that's what we did and as it relates to snacks. Like i definitely that you took more of a leadership role in that way. I love it. It's weird we're going full circle here in so many ways But i also think that was important for you was a truth in reality that had to come away to make is situation that you're getting into more real than truer and beautiful because it was like i want you. I'm going to be led by my desire here and not let you take over you so interesting now. I love it. You are both six an extraordinary inspiration. Thank you so much for doing so much.

"abby wambach" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman

"So it's it's a worrying but it's also a grandiosity humility in thank you control the world or that. I'm responsible for all the bad things in the world. It's not like if something good happens like there's a rainbow and i'm like. Oh yeah it's what we take credit for none of death but we take responsibility for all of the night. I'm a why. I'm able to see the way that i see. It now is because i have been in certain situations that i was one of the best players or on one the best teams in the world and things went wrong and it was my and your business in there debbie. I was also struck by the notion in both of your books that you both have struggled with feeling like a fraud. Which is something that i also struggled with. Nearly every day in fact abby you have an entire chapter dedicated to the feeling in forward and it's hard to imagine the holder of the world record for international goals for both men and women. Soccer players could ever feel like a fraud. I mean that is tangible evidence. That's the nice thing about sports in math. Is tangible evidence. To goals is more than one goal. So there's like a clear winner here so so what do you both feel. Is the foundation of that fraud. Nece so that fraud ity word. I've made up. But like i think that the higher you are able to climb a mountain the less stable your footing is and i think that all people who achieved really high levels of success in anyway. We're not talking about just monetarily. I'm talking about Doing what they're wanting to doing the highest level. I think that feels so daunting. I think all people who find themselves in that position have to look in the mirror and one for how you this right. That doesn't mean that there is equal amount of knowing that you deserve to be there an understanding. I also think that women have a harder time believing that they deserve any kind of reward for their hard work because we've been kind of given a lie. Our whole lives that everything that we get is handed to us. Not so yeah. Those runs well and also to be people who aren't leading her out there leading and who have so many struggles right. I mean to be people who abby as a person who was being called captain america and they'll also struggling mightily with alcoholism. But you know. I am a clinically depressed motivational speaker. It's not it's a tricky tricky right. When i talk about. This concept imposters in jim fraud. Whenever you wanna call it. It is so much more relevant in deep in my friends who are women than my friends. Who are who are not women. And i and i do believe that's because we have always been a part of a culture where men can lead in can fail and men can lead and can have problems in men in that is never an issue but we all we live in a place where women are expected to be perfect whatever that means and so any woman who is in any particular place of power leadership who is also human feels scared about that and it and it's not a wrong feeling because women no inherently that the second bay make a human mistake the secondary their humanity comes to the forefront. They will be crucified for it now. Made up like that's what we do to women. We allow them to rise a little bit in the me. Take them down so whenever people talk about this as something we should just get over. I always think. I think it's something that we should study and know how to deal with. But i think it's legit back in two thousand seventeen. I curated an exhibit called. Text me how. We'd live in language at the museum of design atlanta. The collection was focused on the intersection of visual imagery and language. And how language is the connecting factor among the human race. It was built upon my belief that we live. In and through words we use words to express and define our reality somehow by having these concrete messages in one specific place where we can all view them at the same time. Maybe we'll get to enjoy that. Feeling of being fundamentally connected. Today's sponsor lexus has a similar philosophy. What of their core practices is.

"To this very special. Episode of design matters the near state writers institute and the university at albany speakers. Series thank you. You're so played into being very excited to yard very excited to meet you too and my wife. Roxanne gay says hi. She's fans of both of you as well rate absolutely amazing together all of it everything that you really follow everything. Thank you glennon. I like to start by reading an excerpt from your latest book untamed. Which as of this interview has been on the new york times bestseller list for twenty eight weeks. Congratulations that is quite a feat. So i'd like to sit a stage for what am about to read for our listeners read large librarians dinner with a group of other prominent. You're there to talk about the launch of your upcoming book. Love her which recount your then. As i mentioned husband's infidelity and subsequent attempts at reconciliation and forgiveness. And there you are at this dinner sitting in your assigned seat despite your talent for public speaking. You don't like small talk and sitting in your seat about to eat a salad. Here is the excerpt as i'm reaching addressing. The children's book lady looks over at the door. I look over to. Suddenly a woman is standing there. Where nothingness used to be. She takes up the entire doorway the entire room the entire universe. She has short hair platinum on top shaved on the sides. She's wearing a long trench coat. A red scarf a warm half smile. Cool steel confidence. She stands there for a moment taking inventory of the room. I stare at her and then take inventory of my entire life. My whole being says there she is then. I lose control of my body. I stand up in. Open my arms wide. She looks over cocks. Her head to the side raises her eyebrows. Smiles at me. Fuck fuck fuck. Why am i standing. Why are my arms open. Oh my god what am i doing. I sit back down. She walks around the table and shakes hands with everyone when she gets to me. I stand up again. turn around face. her i'm abby. She says. I ask if i can hug her. Because what if this is the only chance she smiles and opens her arms. Then the smell. That will become home to me. Skin like powder and fabric softener blended with the will of her coat and her cologne and something that smelled like air like outdoors like crisp sky like a baby and a woman and a man and the whole world. The only seat left is at the far end of the table. So she walks away from me and sits down abby. My first question is t you tell us about your experience in that moment when you first met glennon what did you feel what did you think what did you experience with that hug. Tell us everything will leaving us. This event I usually like to see who's going to be at the event kind of pick out. The person was talk to the most straight and at the time. I was really struggling to figure out what i was. Gonna write in my book and part glennon sore. Her backstory was mashing. Mike current store at the time. So i kind of knew that there was made you get beat a person that i'd be able to connect with and when i got into the room and she stood up. She didn't write this in in the book but she actually ended up doing a little bit so nobody else stood up. So this is. This is most supreme awkward moment in all of awkward moments so because she stood up it kind of forced my hand in having to walk around the whole table to her because there again i felt bad right But as soon as i got to her There was something that was that was happening in a couldn't pinpoint the time you know. She asked if we could hug. We hugged and sat down and then throughout the entire dinner. I just felt so annoyed. I was not sitting right next to her curious about what the energy was happening. And then as the dinner on. I kept building a building and then We got literally three or four minutes to walk from that back room to the dais to the stage where we were gonna go. Try to sell our books to the library of america and it was an energy between us that was definitely both ways. You know schuman's many years sober. I was dealing with trying to get sober at the time. I was like a month sober and so i thought maybe our relationship would be based in sobriety and that she was made to get her mentor me through might early sobriety days and then you know i heard her speak and that is what changed it all for me on. If you've ever heard glennon speak it's hard not to fall in love with her and it's hard not to listen and cry and laugh within seconds so though that initial moment for me might not have been there. She is like she experienced. It definitely happened throughout the rest of that night. And i went home. I read love warrior. It was funny because the way love where the marriage redemptions like she figures it out with cragg in the end and at the end. I was like what i like at three o'clock in the morning. I like shot. The broken nose like can't be that on a stage. He wasn't line so my experience. Now i know that the very next time you met in person which was several months later you had both untangled yourselves from your previous marriages so you could be together but you did this before you even kissed for the first time and so in reading forward and reading wolfpack in reading untamed. There's there's not a lot of detail in those months. So i'm wondering if you can share just a little bit about how you started to move to threaten your lives together at that point so the wild thing is not just we had never kissed we had never been in the same room again freight until we both. We can tell that hotel room right. This isn't even in the book. But at the event abby having assistant to was dear french abbas assisted was watching from there was a thousand librarians in the hall that we were in and she watching me speak and she was watching. Abby react to me speaking so abby was kind of tearing up being very emotional and her assistant understood that audience with your very hard time at that point with sobriety. The assistant came up to me at the end of the event. Handed me her card and said. I don't know what's happening tonight. But i've never seen abby like this. And i just feel like she needs you in her life. Mrs unbeknownst to me i have no idea but my sister and i was stunned but i was also like well that makes two of us lady i that i should be an obviously the A few days later. I was just stunned by this experience for days. A few days later. I wrote an email to abby about sobriety about my experience early sobriety and i sent it to the assistant. Because i didn't know early surprise. Should i even be reaching out to her idaho. I said if you think that this is a good thing for her to read senate your. That's how we started emailing so than the assistant sent it to abby abby. Email me back. We ended up just writing to each other every single day. Just writing writing writing writing eventually. Abby later on put together all of our.

"I used to every time that I will talk about untained or talk about. Leaving my marriage abby I would I found myself in the first few seconds of every interview mentioning that my husband cheated on me. And Mentioning Real Quick nonprofit leader I raised money for women kits. And the reason I was doing that is because I knew that people would need. A permission slip to like me Okay. Well, let's agree that you did what you wanted because you had the right to. So it's just I stopped doing that although I just did it interview I have stopped doing it because I just want people women to be able to do what they want without any permission slip from anybody. Well, there's a ven diagram basically beyond say that's it that people that we let be fierce and love them anyway everybody else and you're I, mean, you're almost there is this book is going to be number one for one more week and that's it. We're going to stop liking I'm so sorry what disappointed like six minutes left Sarah I know it. Well. Abby. Why do we put other women down for being entitled because I? Feel like in sports it's a little bit less of that. Right we rise behind our great women goats in sports a little bit more than we do in other places, but it's pretty rampant still. Well our women's national team had an has a culture of truly supporting each other and. Really actually celebrated each other's wins and I think one of the reasons for that is because we weren't afraid. To turn up our own volume. I think a lot of times when people are looking at somebody else in their success. This jealousy in fear rises to the top, and then they're not able to actually make good decisions or see that they actually have more to offer. Right. So Alex Morgan scores, a goal Abby Wambach. Yes awesome, and now it's my opportunity to raise my level a little bit and I think that especially women..

"True and beautiful life that we can possibly live and we live at out I do think that. The Kingdom of Earth's the kingdom does come down to Earth on some. Sundays. I think you both talk about a lot separately and in the same conversations is identity. Glen I think you talk about a lot in your book abby you've talked about with sports and just in your book as well. I know from my personal experience with athletics. My identity was wrapped up in whatever the world wanted to tell me I was I was just the gymnast I was just the metal nothing else. They told me what I could wear how could talk how I could act who I should hang out with all of it. Glenn you've talked a lot about the identity that you got caught up in with your husband in the church and even going as far as like eating disorders in having an image tied to it. I'm curious how your relationship has helped that working through both identities in world stigmas because I know, one of the greatest things ever happened to me was finding Andrew because I was wrapped up an identity that I didn't know how to get out of and he saw something different when the doors were closed and I could Kinda let that guard down and he helps me kind of heal through that and become. Who I was and I'm curious if you guys have. Gone through that together or healed outside of it and. I don't know like flourished each other. Andrew Good. Familiar.

"What's up everybody welcome back to couple thing Sean and Andrew a podcast all about couples the things they go through today. I am truly truly fan girling when I received the message on instagram when they replied yes. We'll tell you who they are in again. I ran lobster on house. I couldn't breathe I thought I was living. In a daydream when I tell you this John was. In giddy with excitement. I'm not lying today we sit down with Glennon doyle and Abby Wambach to legends in their own right and power couple together Abby Wambach I mean two time Olympic gold medalist, literally the goat and soccer I mean the greatest really known as the best soccer player of all time two time Olympic gold medalist. She's also a New York Times bestselling author as is her counterpart, her wife Glennon Doyle who has written books like love warrior untamed. Yes. We will link the information for that. Glennon is making a massive name for herself in the untamed world preaching this. Concept of being untamed being true to yourself. She is in the reading circles, OPRAH? Race Witherspoon Creston Mel I mean everybody. She's amazing. What's right. So this was the conversation that I think we put the most thought into. We had the most fun with and it was also the most challenging in a lot of waste. So here's a deal Glennon story is this she was in traditional marriage had several kids divorced met abby and married. Abby and so she has caught a lot of slack from dissenters but also has gained Colt liked devotion others, and here's our stance I think whether you are blindly in love with somebody or disagree adamantly with somebody for whatever the reason it's important to still be able to have a respectful conversation still be able to be thoughtful. So be able to listen in Glean things that you do like and you don't like and so. I enjoyed today because it's so much good things to say and tell you from fathers perspective that I want to be like them and so many different ways. Yes. I.

"That determine what happens to the individual and collective. Is Political. If you if you WANNA get real like specific about it but I get it, I get that politics the way that that that the world feels so politicized and how it's going to be talked about and turned around I do believe that we need to get back to a level of Cuban decency and to be able to to disagree on things. In a manner that is kind and but that isn't you know winner take all attitude like whatever happen to. You know we're GonNa, get some and we're probably going to lose some. But in general, we're all moving in the right direction and we're all getting enough of what we need. And not, and that's just the struggle that I'm having with right now. So for me and my family I believe, and this is true that no matter what I think there's always an opportunity right? There's two ways you can always look at a situation one with with positive glasses on and another with negative glasses on. I'm? A. Oriented Person clearly I think that things can change, but I'm not going to be only pointing at the negative rather than you know for me my family tries to do is really figure out. Okay. What are things that we can control that we can solve that we can have positive fact so that the outcome feels good enough to us right it's not like I want everything and so I'm GonNa demonized the entirety of the Republican party because I'm sure everybody knows that understand that I'm a little bit more local. At the end of the day I still want to understand why folks you know in the Republican folks that I know the folks who really care about that party what they believe in what what is true. So how do we come to the middle like okay I'm GonNa Focus on what I feel is most important any what I can control and maybe go about trying to fix it. Rather than just talking crap and complaining about the things that you don't have or the things that you are you you feel you're going to lose. We had. We gotTA figure out how we can get back to some sense of normalcy where everybody is is feeling like they're respected and not being abused or murdered or victimized. Right. So I don't know I could go all day and for people who like you know WanNa complain and Gripe about it not being political. Grow up like everything's political. No I understand abby and it's about it's about owning your actions and being responsible for it instead of just owning someone for the sake of owning them I I think that's really what things are becoming like right now and you know not to get too deep about it you know Abby Wambach here on the rich Eisen show as we know, covert finds the weakness everywhere whether it's your your body, your health, your family, your your wellbeing, all of it. In terms of youth. Sports. My youngest son and my daughter would already be a couple of weeks into their. So O. Season that doesn't exist right now I'm wondering what you're seeing about the effect of youth sports and youth soccer right now as things because of the success of you and your cohorts and successors on the US women's national team as well as hopefully what we're seeing out of Christian Pulisic and more. That we're, we're you know what I'm saying that we're seeing more attention being paid to soccer in the United States I wonder what you're seeing the effective covert is on on this. Yeah. Yeah. I understand that in every state there's different phases that have allowed some kids go back to playing soccer and some haven't right. My biggest concern right now isn't about Kids around the country not getting better. At soccer, my more my my bigger concern is their mental health around not getting outside and being around their friends and getting active and getting their blood move in You know I've I've talked to a lot of kids don't lot of. Book Club things where you know the kids haven't been able to hang out with their friends and that's such a huge component to use sport. Some kids are going sir crazy because they can't get outside and they can't run around and they can't feel that fatigue that that that comes only after a long week of training You know that kind of stuff for me the mental health component to it feels more Worrisome for me, but I also know that kids are resilient bill doc real quick and you know the the longer the better we can be as a collective to maintaining some sense of decency for each other you know wearing masks and. adhering to the to the rules of your of your state or your city governor, whatever it is so that we can actually get through this together. 'cause you know unfortunately being so divided right now, we do need to actually come together to solve the bigger problems that and it seems like that's becoming evident. That is that's like the bigger problem than the actual disease itself and I think it's a it's an experiment in human relations right now if we could all just agree to do the same thing for. In. Long enough period of time to wait this out, people might be able to actually go play sports. before the vaccine comes out right like who knows and I'm not obviously not a doctor. So take that with a grain of salt. I just believe that this is the most interesting human experiment of all time and we're we're. Like miserably failing as a species wombat here on the rich Eisen show Wolf pack based on the number. One New York Times bestseller. There is now again a youth edition I can't wait to bring it. The youth reader's edition can't wait to bring this home to my my kids I guess before I let you go on I don't know if you're a fan of American football from Rochester. So does that mean you're buffalo bills individual or not at all? I went to the ninety s with the buffalo bills. I was a teenager when we went to four straight super bowls and June and Jim Kelly. could never bring one home. So my heart is forever broken by the Buffalo Bills I think, and it's been hard for me to follow them especially because then they were terrible for many many many many years. Will I be a fair weather fan? You're absolutely right. We'll be right if. They continue to keep going well, you know then of course, I'll support them. Okay. Well, let the Abby Wambach of broadcasting tell the actual Abby Wambach come on home the bills are waiting for you. They're pretty damn good right now go forward. I don't think. Bill's let's go. Let's go like the kicking keep kicking butt and maybe one day you'll sign me at the stadium watching you this mascot. That's it. Very good. Hey, abby. CONGRATS on the book. And I I meant it.

"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The scam is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen. Today, we have a very special guest joining us abby Wambach is here with us on skin from the couch she is a two time Olympic gold medalist, a FIFA World Cup champion, and a member of the national soccer hall of fame. Also, she hasn't slowed down in retirement she is now a New York Times. Author and equal pay activists. We I had the pleasure of meeting abby when we spoke to her wife, Glennon Doyle on the show in March and we dragged her onto the podcast as well, and if you haven't listened to that episode, go check it out. It's a good one abby. Thank you so much for joining us today. Welcome to skin from the catch. Yeah. Thanks for having me. I'm so thrilled and honored to be with you all on three different couches. Thou-. Before. We jump into our first question I have to tell you I was looking at our prep for this and there was one bullet in here. That has really made me laugh as I have to share it, which is that you used to have a special card that got you a free Burrito a day from AAA but it stopped working when you're retired that seems passive aggressive for sure to Poli what the F.. Yeah. So when I first got this card, it was Gosh I must've been ten years ago now and you know like the gold cards portly for life like essentially my name is on it and you guys don't know how I go way back. From the early days and I mean I would get a Burrito. Day You guys we're both creatures of habits. I respect this. Yeah. It was crazy and this is before we really knew how many calories were in each burrito. Bowl that I would make or Burrito early days. and. So then yeah, of course when I retired, I was super excited to still be able to get one free Burrito a week for year, but they never really checked up on it but then I think when I got a family when I married Glenn and attained. That you know fifteen dollar meal. Turned into a sixty five dollar meal or seventy dollars meal for the whole family and pull was like I. Don't know if we're GONNA keep floating this for her so. It was a good run while it lasted I'm sorry that you've struggled with that but I did make me laugh as read. So, we're going to jump into our very first question. We'd like to ask everybody it just skim your resume skin my resume. It's so funny because when you retire, that's like that's essentially what I've had to do over the last four or five years of my life since retiring from playing on the national team, and if people don't really know I played for a long time on our women's national team. So Ski. My life I'm the youngest of seven children I grew up in Rochester New York, and I went to the University of Florida and played soccer there for four seasons where after I was drafted number two by the way just remember this folks you don't get drafted number one. You can still succeed I was drafted number two out of college to go play for a team called The Washington freedom the best player in. The world at the time. Mia. Hamm played on that team and it really changed my life because we were able to develop a connection that then transferred into me getting called into the national team and playing on the national team in scoring goals in the national team, and then I had a pretty long career representing his country won a gold medal. I want a couple of medals actually I won a fee. For Women's World Cup. World. Cup. I should say it doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl that's pretty awesome in my retirement I have kind of taken on this activism role that when I play ironically when I played I was a little bit more like just go and do my job and we were going to show our activism rather than talk about it. But when you quit playing, you gotta actually transfer that. Because I can't play anymore I can't show it in the ways that I used to. So I've transitioned into becoming a public speaker and an activist and apparent and wife, and that is my skin. Has a great skin? What is it like to be really good at something where young 'cause I have? No clue. Yeah I mean it's confidence building you know I felt like. Okay. I know that I'm good at this thing over here but I think you know all of us have our little things right? Like no matter what kind of. Place we grew up or family we grew up in or what kind of trauma we we experienced as a child because we all do some of US feel like we're unlovable my case in particular some of us were neglected. Some of us were over parented like we all have problems inside of our family dynamics that for me really allowed me to and gave me the courage to propel in this kind of an individualistic career. So when I was young I kind of was a very big risk taker. I was a free spirit is what they called me, I think that's what they call children who don't follow the rules as much as their parents want them to and I think that the other side of that coin is I was really trying to get the attention of my parents, right. So the very thing that might have felt trauma or hardship from in my childhood is the very thing that made me successful. So I have to always remember that like as much as I as young as seven children. As much as all of us wanted the attention of our parents, I do think that kind of parent team actually shaped me and and allowed me to explore this competitiveness inside. In this drive and this embiid to go after what I needed and what I wanted. So I give a lot of credit to that form of parenting into that trauma
