Episode 41 - Sports Performance w/ Dr. Mallory Quinn

This week we're joined in the virtual studio with special guest, Dr. Mallory Quinn from ABA Sports Innovations, to talk about behavior analysis and improving sports performance.  We stare blankly at one another while trying to figure out how pole vaulting works before Mallory breaks out the glitter and graphs to demonstrate how to improve dance moves.  Then we stop everything for a musical number.  Eat your heart out, Ryan Gosling!
