Welcome to Sportopia, the place to re-imagine the future of sport! This week’s episode welcomes a conversation about grief and loss literacy. Hosted by Dina Bell-Laroche and Steve Indig, partners of Sport Law, this podcast explores the background of grief and loss literacy and how that relates to sport, based on Dina’s studies in thanatology. During this 30-minute conversation, Dina and Steve discuss how grief and loss manifest in sport and the positive impact of having loss-literate sport leaders, coaches, and athletes.

The Sportopia Podcast is recorded on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada. We wish to thank these First Peoples who continue to live on these lands and care for them, and whose relationship with these lands existed from time immemorial. We are grateful to have the opportunity to live, work, and play on these lands. 

Sport Law is committed to recognizing, supporting, and advocating for reconciliation in Canada and to actively work against colonialism by amplifying Indigenous voices and increasing our own understanding of local Indigenous people and their cultures.
