SOMD’s First Podcast

Post 25 of 188

We are excited to share Special Olympics Maryland’s first ever Podcast, “Brave in the Attempt in Maryland”.

This premiere episode was produced by Mike Gerlach.

In this episode Special Olympics Maryland President and CEO, Jim Schmutz,  talks about why we have decided to enter into the podcast world.

We also talk to athlete and Global Messenger Adam Hays. Gain a deeper understanding of Adam’s story and the importance of Special Olympics Maryland in his life.

Moving forward Adam will co-host the podcast with Jason Schriml as we talk to athletes, family members, coaches, etc. who all make up the fabric of what Special Olympics Maryland is today.

Look for Episode Two coming up soon as we will talk to Law Enforcement Final Leg representatives Toni Duncan and Frank Tewey about their experience at the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria.
