Chris Stafford and Cindi Leeman's guest is Erin Taylor Talcott who is best known for being a pioneer for women's equality in race walking, striving to make the 50K a distance for women internationally. She's the first woman to compete in a men's Olympic Trials event which she did in 2012 at the men's 50K Olympic Trials where she placed 6th. She's the winner of the first ever Area Championship for a women's 50K which she did in 2015 in Arica, Chile. And she's the first woman to compete in a genderblind competition when she raced at the IAAF World Team Championships of Race Walking in Rome, Italy where she placed 39th in the world.
