Just the obligatory nagging friendly reminder to SUBSCRIBE to the WUP pod — available just about anywhere you choose to digest your podcasts: iTunes, Google Play Music, Soundcloud, WUP Podcast Page, Libsyn Classic Feed, etc. Of course, you can always listen via the player below, as well. But I’m a big fan of subscribing to pods because they just pop up in your feed as soon as they’re released. 

Questions? As always, please feel free to contact me about anything and I’m always open to suggestions and constructive criticism (that’s the only way we evolve!): stephanie@weiunderpar.com. I may not answer immediately, but I try my best– as you might be able to imagine, I can’t keep up with the hundreds of emails I receive every day, and actually, I wish I could hire an intern just to help me with writing and replying to damn EMAILS. In the meantime, I promise to address your emails on the pod at the next earliest convenience. Deal? Cool. Thanks for your continued support!

I caught up a few weeks ago with Golf Digest social media coordinator, pro golfer and part-time comedian Hally Leadbetter. We talked about her recent move to NYC, her journey from junior golfer to pro golf to media, good/bad “golf parents”, managing (aka, lowering) expectations when she plays now, signing up for a stand-up comedy class, and her recent buddies trip in Scotland.

In short: Get-to-know Hally — she’s awesome, and a woman of many talents!

Prestwick GC on Wednesday evening

Prestwick GC on Wednesday evening

I was joined by a special guest — golf renaissance man Geoff Shackelford, who is a senior writer at Golfweek, contributor for Golf Channel and pioneer in the game’s multimedia presence with his eponymous blog, co-host of the podcast ShackHouse, author, architect, etc. — during the second round of the Scottish Open at Dundonald Links. I tricked him into talking with me for 50 minutes (instead of the agreed upon 30 minutes) Friday afternoon.

We discussed the first episode of the second season of Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast Revisionist History, which is basically an essay on why he hates golf, the perception and culture of the game in the United Kingdom vs. the United States, links golf in Scotland, architecture, and more.

Listen via the player below, and your usual friendly reminder to subscribe to the pod on iTunes!
