Nicola Adams: How to be Invincible

This week on The Happy Vagina podcast we are joined by phenomenal LGBTQ+ activist, pioneering female athlete, Olympian and Great Britain’s most successful boxer - the Lioness herself - Nicola Adams OBE. We do a deep deep into what it takes to be a female athlete, the impacts of the training on mental and physical health, and discuss gender equality in sport, and what still needs to happen to de-stigmatise women’s issues - and why Nicola believes all women deserve to feel invincible.

The Happy Vagina podcast is hosted by Mika Simmons
