This week’s episode is different in a few ways- it’s a crossover episode with the Citius Mag Podcast, we recorded it remotely via Zoom, and it’s a bit more serious in tone than most episodes of RYM.
Our guest this week is Russell Dinkins, a member of Princeton Class of 2013 and a professional runner for the New York Athletic Club. Russell is a 1:46 800 meter runner and multiple-time Heps champion, and he’s also been a vocal advocate on issues of race and racism, most recently as they pertain to the recent decision by Brown University to cut its men’s cross-country and track teams.
