#9 All Girls Roar- The Podcast The Rally Racing Driver Khyati Mody
No good ever came from bunking off school was something I heard growing up all the time. However that wasn't the case for Khyati Mody. In fact it was bunking off school that led her to discovering a new passion and skills in driving. As a child racing was always something Khyati loved, that and Michael Schumacher and his red Ferrari and it is here her love affair with driving began. It was bunking off school to go karting that led to a chance encounter with India's multiple national champion Rayomand Banajee. He spotted her potential and took her under his wing to coach her. From karting, she progressed to formula racing, autocross, and cross country and rally. At 22 Khyati Mody, decided to press the accelerator and live her dreams of making a professional career in rally driving. In our conversation Khyati talks about some of the reactions she has faced from male drivers, including one who refused to take his podium place after she beat him. She also talks about her plans to race in Europe and how she wants to use her platform to encourage more women to take up the sport.

#8 All Girls Roar- The Podcast The Badass Mother Runner Bev Logan
Like many people I hated PE at school and it turns out so did my guest this week- the fantastic and inspiring founder of The Badass Mother Runners Club Bev Logan. So how did someone who hated sport so much end up creating an online community for runners? Bev Logan set up Badass Mother Runners when she was in the depths of depression and now has a thriving community of runners from all walks of life supporting each other through their running journeys. In our conversation Bev talks about what led her to set up The Badass Mother Runners Club and how she's so proud of the community which started at her kitchen table and offers genuine support without judgement to so many people. We also touch on the #WEWILL campaign raising awareness of harassment of women runners and how women and young girls are often conditioned from a young age to look out for their safety in a way their male counterparts never have to. Bev is hilarious fun, honest, humble and was a joy to talk to. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
