Welcome back listeners!

On this episode of the podcast Joe discusses what the long-term ramifications of COVID-19 could have on the world of athletics and specifically college athletes.

In order to fully discuss this topic as well as the trickle-down affects of cancellations Joe talks to both Jeff Carpenter & Jared Wheeler of Last Chance U on Netflix.

Jeff returns to the podcast and discusses the role of athletics in these student’s lives while Jared, an educator, discusses how important the role of academics is in these student’s lives.

Take a listen and see if we can all start working on a better tomorrow, today.
