Introducing Legacy of Speed
We’re sharing a preview of the new podcast, Legacy of Speed, from Pushkin Industries. Legacy of Speed follows the transformation of a San Jose State track program in the 1960s. What started out as a second-tier state college no one outside of California had ever heard of, quickly became known as the home to Speed City. The guidance of one coach and his unconventional techniques launched the careers of the fastest sprinters of the day. Host Malcolm Gladwell, a competitive runner himself, traces the journeys of those sprinters, who went on to ignite a boycott movement and protest the 1968 Summer Olympics. It’s a story about athletes who dared to take a stand, and the mentors who made them fast – and brave enough – to change the world. Listen to Legacy of Speed at https://podcasts.pushkin.fm/losmedia
