#683 Pickleball for Dummies - Author Mo Nard

Pickleball for Dummies - Author Mo Nard The Not Old Better Show, Fitness Friday Interview Series Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Fitness Friday Interview series on radio and podcast. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and today’s show is brought to you by POM Wonderful; 100% Pomegranate Juice is “health in a bottle.” We have an excellent new year program for all of us, making fitness resolutions and having some plain old fun. Thank you so much for listening. As I say, we’ve got a great guest today, who I’ve been looking forward to for a while and whom I’ll introduce in just a moment…But, quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 682d episode, when I spoke to Sam Mulaim, to help us understand the challenges of building an online business using the website development tools from WordPress. Two weeks ago, I spoke with Robert Ellsberg about his long-time friend, PBS star and humanitarian Sister Wendy Beckett. Wonderful stuff…If you missed those shows, along with any others, you can go back and check them out with my entire back catalog of shows, all free for you there on our website, NotOld-Better.com…and if you leave a review, we will read it at the end of each show…leave reviews on Apple Podcasts for us. We have talked about pickleball on the show for some time now. I’ve started to play, and grown more and more interested, along with the world…pickleball is the fastest growing US sport, played by all ages, but more and more of us in the Not Old Better Show audience…certainly are playing. The game with the funny name was created in the 1960s and is, as I mentioned, today the fastest-growing sport in America. We have a two-part show today that will take you through the hows of the game. In today’s episode, we talk to pro player, certified teaching pro, and author of the new book Pickleball for Dummies, Mo Nard. Mo Nard will tell us that pickleball is easy to understand and appropriate for newbies as well as advanced players. We cover it all, from scoring, serving, dinking, places to play, and getting more involved in the community. Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, Fitness Friday, New Year edition, Mo Nard. We we’ll be right back with author of ‘Pickleball for Dummies,’ Mo Nard…please stay tuned. My thanks to POM Wonderful; 100% Pomegranate Juice is “health in a bottle,” for sponsoring today’s show. My thanks always to the Smithsonian team for all they do to support the show. My thanks to Mo Nard for her time today. Next week we’ll follow up with pickleball Ambassador Nikki Weigel…a great interview about the new sport and its national, international direction. Again, Mo Nark’s new book, “Pickleball for Dummies” is available now. My thanks to you, my wonderful Not Old Better Show Fitness Friday audience on radio and podcast…please be well and be safe, which I’m mentioning in every show because I want to bring attention to the issue of assault rifles, which aren’t safe, in anyone’s hands but the military and law enforcement. Assault rifles are killing our children and grandchildren in the very places they learn: schools! Please, let’s work together to eliminate assault rifles, and let’s do better. Let’s talk about Better…the Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast; thanks, everybody. See you next time for our interview with pickleball Ambassador Nikki Weigel.

    Albert Einstein said, 'If you can't explain it simply enough, you haven't understood it well enough'.Dr Andrew brings such simplicity to explaining the workings of the brain. It's actually a hacker's guide into our own brain. You are doing great service to humanity Dr Andrew.

    I find these weekly podcasts to be super inspirational, they seem to always motivate me to look at my purpose. Matt not only brings in his personal life experiences but he delivers them in such a way that they are relatable.
