In 1956, Max Baldwin made history as the first disabled person to compete on an Australian Olympic Team. At 91-years old, Max sits across from me via Skype and recounts his incredible journey—from contracting polio as a baby and loosing use of one leg—to competing in the Olympics in his 20s and becoming the first Australian to 3-track ski. There is much wisdom, humility, and humor in this man’s incredible story. At the end of the episode, Max’s son, Matt, joins me and we discuss the importance of sharing each other's stories.
