Your mom probably told you it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Well, then she was never a competitive figure skater. Olympic medalist Adam Rippon has been making it pretty for the judges even when, just below the surface, everything was a mess. From traveling great distances to practices to being so poor that he depended on the free apples at his gym for sustenance, Rippon got through the toughest of times with a smile on his face, a glint in his eye, and a quip ready for anyone listening.

Hilarious and inspirational, Beautiful on the Outside recounts Rippon’s journey from a homeschooled kid in Scranton, Pennsylvania, to coming out as gay in 2015, to winning a bronze medal as part of the figure skating team event at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea—and all the disasters and self-delusions it took to get there.

In conversation with Liz Dolan, co-host of the long-running award-winning podcast “Satellite Sisters” and the workplace advice podcast “Safe For Work.” Dolan is the former Chief Marketing Officer at Nike, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, Fox Sports, and National Geographic Channel. She’s the co-author of Satellite Sisters Uncommon Senses and You’re The Best: A Celebration of Friendship.
