Share this Episode


An unlikely rower from Mount Holyoke became an Olympic athlete.

That athlete completed law school and launched a successful legal career.

Then she laid it all aside to become a filmmaker. 

Her latest documentary tells the story of an inner city rowing team from a difficult side of Chicago that came together to overcome a variety of obstacles and difficulties. 

Mary Mazzio, founder of 50 EGGS Films, joined the podcast to talk about her film, A Most Beautiful Thing

Mary and I discussed:

  • How she unlocked the golden handcuffs to become a filmmaker
  • Avoiding the white savior trope in sports films
  • Why communities that don’t reach their potential hold us back as a country
