6. Denial with Belen Bode
Denial is a powerful force. It can make someone deny their reality simple because they're not ready to face the truth. Belen Bode chats with the host, pro fighter and writer Angela Chang, to discuss how being in denial has affected her fighting career. We dive into her experiences of tearing her ACL AND meniscus, her recovery process, and what finally led her to get proper treatment and come face-to-face with the reality of needing to get surgery and NOT be able to train and fight for almost a year.  To follow Belen: instagram.com/belen_nycc ---------- If you'd like to more high-quality content, please consider supporting Muay Ying through Patreon.

3. We Don't Have All the Answers with Jess Izen
Trans women in combat sports - the topic is hot and controversial. And it seems like the options available aren't making anyone happy. Jess Izen shares her experiences as she navigates the Muay Thai scene. In this thought-provoking talk, you may start to question whether what's on the table is absolute - and is there something we're missing? A template to send out to those responsible for making policies for tournaments and fights will be made available on muay-ying.com. It's still in the works, so check back (and ask!) to see how else you can help get policies in place so the fight scene can become better (and not so confusing) for everyone - athletes, coaches, and promoters. If you are a trans person who would like to connect with Jess, please contact Angela. ---------- Muay Ying patreon.com/muayying instagram.com/muay.ying muay-ying.com Angela Chang instagram.com/angelasitan If you'd like to more high-quality content, please consider supporting Muay Ying through Patreon.
