Podcast: Dirk Chatelain


I recently sat down with sports writer, Dirk Chatelain, to discuss his book 24th and Glory. There are significant parallels to be drawn between this story and the grit and scrappiness within the profession of optometry.

This book is about the mystery of Omaha’s greatest generation of athletes. They rose out of segregation as racial tensions in north O boiled hotter and hotter. During the civil rights era, they ascended to national prominence – Bob Boozer, Gale and Roger Sayers, Marlin Briscoe, Ron Boone, Johnny Rodgers and Bob Gibson.
