Full Time is the new soccer show hosted by Utah Royals FC Forward Katie Stengel and her first guest is teammate Mandy Laddish who has battled major injuries to return to the game
Full Time is hosted by Katie Stengel
Podcast length: 34′ 52″
On the first episode of Full Time, Katie Stengel enters the podcast world with a special guest Mandy Laddish. Mandy’s comeback story after 937 days of fighting to get back to playing professional soccer is inspiring, real, and thought provoking. Mandy shares her journey with multiple excruciating hip surgeries and overcoming doctor’s expectations that she would never play again. The battle back is never easy and very often more mentally exhausting than the obvious physical pain one must bear. Mandy continues to adapt an identity often entwined with her soccer performance, but she proves it’s vital to find yourself outside of your work or first passion. Be sure to tune in to hear all about the unrelenting courage, determination, and will that define this incredible teammate and friend. “It was my honor to get to talk to Mandy about this comeback story and continue to watch her grow and enjoy the game we both love. Follow along at Yahoo Sports this Friday night May 3rd at 7:30 MT for our game against Chicago, and catch more of Mandy’s unique personality on and off the field @mladdish. Thanks for tuning in,” Katie.
