Farley opens the show asking Docs about a high school teammate with a similar story to our guest.

We are joined at (10:03) by Olympian Hassan Mead (@HassyHass35).

At (13:31) we ask Hassan about his experiences when he first moved to the United States and what it was like not knowing the language at school.

At (19:37) we talk about his introduction to running and the running journey through high school and at the University of Minnesota.

At (25:17) we talk about the recent Taylor Dutch article that discussed Hassans experiences with social injustice and racial profiling, his views on current events and what he feels his role is to support progress in this country.

At (35:13) we ask about the postponement of the 2020 Olympics and ask Hassan about his current training.

We are back at (50:56) to wrap up the interview and Farley and Julie wish Docs would come back to the studio, not because they miss him but because they are over working the soundboard.

At (55:17) we talk about the NCAA fall sports schedule and more college athletic programs folding.
