Join Adam Rippon, former Olympic figure skater and Dancing with the Stars champion, for a fun and inspirational discussion as he talks about everything from life on the world stage to all the disasters and self-delusions it took to get him there.  From traveling to practices on a Greyhound bus next to ex-convicts to being so poor he could only afford to eat the free apples at his gym, Rippon got through the toughest times with a smile on his face and a glint in his eye – all the way to becoming the first openly gay U.S. male athlete to win a medal in a Winter Olympics. Rippon will discuss the highs and lows of his now high-profile life while sharing other tales from his new memoir, Beautiful on the Outside (Grand Central Publishing; September 2019).
