This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is a special one, as it is the launch of our new book, Playbook of Champions: The habits, routines, and stories of Olympians, Champions, and world-class athletes. If you listen to the show – which, if you’re reading this, then you are – then this is the perfect book for you, as it is a distillation of the best golden nuggets from our first five years of the podcast.
We whittled it down into 352 pages, featuring everyone from gold medalists such as April Ross and Alix Klineman to the legends in Sinjin Smith and Kent Steffes and Karch Kiraly to the entrepreneurs in this sport like Mark Burik and Brandon Joyner to the coaches who are developing the next generation such as John Mayer, Angie Akers, Jose Loiola, and more. It is – and I’m biased, I know – a phenomenal book, and I cannot recommend it enough.
On this episode, we chatted about:
- How unexpected the success of this podcast has been
- The incredible lessons we’ve both taken away from it, and how it has been a massive factor in Travis’ success as a player, expediting his improvement beyond any measurable degree
- How it has inspired Tri to look beyond simply playing beach volleyball as a career, making him think about his next possible steps
- And our favorite and most memorable episodes of the podcast
And so, so much more. We appreciate y’all so much for listening and supporting us for the past five-plus years!
Much love, and many more big things to come!
