Another week, another podcast, and we’ve got another good one for you. This week we get an update on Dr. King’s ankle tendonitis and hear his story on how he setback his own rehab. We talk about the Netflix documentary “Icarus” about an amateur athlete trying to defeat the Olympic doping only to back into the actual Russian doping scandal.
In other news… The audio in today’s podcast has some extra reverb in it today. That’s a technical glitch. Or really, more my (Ben’s) fault. I had a setting wrong and so we caught the audio from the computer mic rather than recording from the soundboard. Oops. My bad. It doesn’t make the podcast unlistenable by any means, but you will notice a difference in sound quality for today’s podcast.
