Our Athletes

It's my pleasure to be able to bring you the stories of current and former Olympic Athletes and Hopefuls about their story and path to the games. From Gold Medal Winners to unfortunate injuries, for the amount of blood, sweat, tears, effort, energy, and money Our Athletes put in on a daily basis to be the best in the world, the least we can do is learn more about what they endure. Trials and tribulations, short comings and over coming the odds, these are the stories of Our Athletes from their mouth to your ears.... Show More

The amazing and wonderful Madisyn Cox joins the show to tell us about her life in swimming! Madisyn crushed it in college at UT-Austin swimming for the Longhorns where she won 12 Big 12 Championships. Madisyn went on to win multiple international medals including a Gold at the World Championships.


In 2018 Madisyn tested positive for a banned substance and was subsequently suspended from competition for 2 years. There was a long legal battle (which is currently still going) about how this substance got into her body. Many things were tested from contact solution to water but unfortunately nothing was found and Madisyn lost. After being suspended for 6 month, they finally found out where the banned substance came from and Madisyn was allowed to compete again.


Hearing Madisyn's experience is a great story in perseverance and continuing to fight.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
