#335: Author + ESPN Contributor Kate Fagan

Dimity McDowell and Adrienne Martini have a candid conversation with Kate Fagan, ESPN columnist and author of What Made Maddy Run, the heartbreaking story of Madison Holleran, a collegiate runner who committed suicide during her freshman year at the University of Pennsylvania. As they talk through the book, the trio discuss everything from the intensity of college athletics—and freshman year— to the impact social media has on our psyches to missing signs of suicidal tendencies. In the intro, Dimity and Adrienne, the author of Hillbilly Gothic: A Memoir of Madness and Motherhood, share about their own experiences with mental illness.

  1. This was a great podcast. Thank you so much Dimity and Adrienne for sharing yourselves so intimately. As someone who comes from a long lineage of depression, addiction, and suicide, I have at times struggled with my own dark places. I have no doubt my running life has done much to keep me sane and maybe even alive. As a mom of a 17 yo HS XC runner, Maddy’s story terrifies me; your conversation with Kate Fagan is real and raw and provides some insight and hope. Thanks for “going there.” Ya;ll are the best.
