This week on Third Eye Weekly, we have U.S. Track and Field Hall of Famer Brooks Johnson, who has been coaching at the Olympic level for more than a half century. Today, he joins us to discuss coaching through the generations and gives a little insight on the apex between athletics and the arts. Today’s interview will be taking from where we left off with this week’s excerpt which ran yesterday on BreakThru Radio.
We’ll also be talking with U.S. Olympic swimming contender Tyler Clary, who has broken records once held by the likes of Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.
Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Iyeoka Okoawo. If you’d like to submit a poem for our consideration to be played/read/performed on the show, send the text of your poem in a Word document format to thirdeyeweekly at gmail dot com. Feel free to send an mp3 of your file but if you do, of course, we’ll have to take the file’s sound quality into consideration. So just be prepared to have one of us read your poem on the air (you know, if we like it) if we can’t tell what you’re saying.
A special shout-out to the LouderArts project and Pavement’s seminal 1994 album, Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, for making today’s show possible.
So without further ado…
