1. Renel Brooks-Moon: Former Radio Personality Breaks Barriers as Baseball Announcer Carl Landau, Renel Brooks-Moon 43:58

Warning: Carl turns into super-fanboy this week when he gets a chance to talk with Renel Brooks-Moon. She has broken barriers as a baseball announcer whose accomplishments are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Even if you’re not a huge baseball fan like Carl, you will be inspired by the incredible second act story of how a young woman of color breaks into the world of radio in the ’80’s, co-hosts the highly popular “morning zoo” show and then became the beloved public address announcer of the San Francisco Giants. 

Twenty-two years later and 3 World Championships later Renel is still inspiring girls and young woman around the world. Plus one oldish Jewish host.
