Off The Track Podcast is a platform for USC Track & Field athletes to express their thoughts and feelings on anything and everything. We represent a community and family of different races, orientations, and people in general who have come to accept one another for who they are. It is with this in mind that we continue conversations on how to improve that in everyday society. We are not politicians, we are not life coaches, and we are not judgemental people. Who we are are people of various backgrounds and opinions who value our counterparts’ values and opinions first and foremost.


The goal will be to provide the listener/viewer a broader perspective of the everyday struggle of an African-American and/or people of color. Guests will consist of student-athletes, mentors, coaches, student body, etc. Together we will develop solutions for equality.
