What does David "Dirk" Smith (he/him/his), founder of Stonewall Performance, managing editor for Compete Sports Diversity, the Community Manager for Virtual Sport Psych, a strength and conditioning coach, sport psychology consultant, sports coach, published research scientist, PhD Student, AND Sports Diversity Leader find satisfying, fulfilling, and encouraging? Listen to this all new episode of Beau my God to hear what Dirk has to say to friend, colleague, and host Beau Bradley (they/he) about all of the above, the World Cup, Gay Games, Sin City Classic, NGFFL, Pride Cheerleading Association, and so, so much more.
