The GRIT meets HeRSTORY
August 9, 2019 - Wesley Chapel, FL - The HeRSTORY Museum was host to new live recordings of The GRIT podcast which will be posted sometime in September 2019. Digit Murphy in her summer apparel arrived in Wesley Chapel on August 9 and recorded 4 new episodes and a new recurring segment called “Ask the Athlete”.
The first interview was with Gordie Zimmermann, the general manager and managing partner of AdventHealth Center Ice. Gordie and Digit chatted about how the impacts of the HeRSTORY Museum at the ice center as well as the impact of women in sports.
Next up was Carly Norman who was one of the recipients of the inaugural scholarships awarded by the HeRSTORY Museum a few months ago. Carly recently graduated from Wiregrass Ranch High School and will be attending the University of Central Florida seeking a degree in physical therapy. She talked about her adventure in sports including how she was instrumental in starting the first lacrosse team at Wiregrass Ranch.
Third interviewee was Hope Allen, the CEO of the North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce. Digit and her talked about the increasingly involvement of women in business and how the Chamber was so excited the first HeRSTORY Museum is located in Wesley Chapel.
The last interview was a group discussion with three pre-teen girls from Wesley Chapel. Sofia Esposito, Ella Weatherford and Cali Esposito talked with Digit about their experiences in sports and school as well as some of their heros. In addition to their group interview, each of the girls also recorded a question that will be included on future episodes in a new segment called “Ask the Athlete”. Those questions will be posed to women who Digit interviews in the future.
