Podcast: Who Had The Better Career – Ritz, Webb or Hall?

By Robert Johnson
May 14, 2020

Our normal LetsRun.com Track Talk podcast returns (subscribe here) but this was far from a normal podcast as podcasting history was made as for the first time in world history a six-day-old baby appeared on a podcast. Once we adjusted to our new female co-host, we spent most of the show debating who had the better career – Dathan Ritzenhein, Alan Webb or Ryan Hall? Along the way, Rojo ranted about the need for colleges to open up this fall, Tedd Ginn Jr was exposed as a liar, we wondered if World Athletics deserves more props for its anti-doping effectiveness, and much more.
