The delightful Genevieve Bessette made history when at 12 years old, her coach measured the length of her leg and manufactured for her a steel hoop to perform on. Today, this apparatus is known around the world as the aerial hoop, the cerceau, or lyra. This episode is all about innovating, who gets credit for it, and how to continue to be creative, even when you’re an adult with bills to pay.
