Emily Kwok fell into Jiu Jitsu and even though she never excelled at organized sports growing up, she became a high-level competitor. But after several years of winning, and even as a world champion, she felt she was not worthy of being a student, an opponent, or even anyone’s time on the mat.
Listen as Emily talks about how she overcame a very negative training environment. How she pulled herself out of what she describes was a downward spiral, and how she found her way back to the top of her game both physically and mentally.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast
Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
