    Speaking up with Dr. Airron Richardson

    Speaking up with Dr. Airron Richardson

    A two-time All-American at Michigan, Dr. Airron Richardson has quite a dynamic background. The Ohio native started his collegiate career playing football at Morehouse, a historically black college in Georgia. A chance appearance as a spectator at a wrestling tournament brought Richardson to Michigan.
    Richardson went into the medical profession, and recently with a group of other African-American doctors, opened up the first black-owned urgent care facilities in Chicago. Richardson has recently been in the news speaking up about the sexual abuse allegations against former Michigan doctor Robert E. Anderson.

    Richardson also talks about his battles with Tolly Thompson, Kerry McCoy and Shelton Benjamin during his college career as well as the current state of affairs for African Americans.

Guy T Harris ,

Great podcast for the serious wrestling fan!

Highly recommend!

Jeffpv ,

Great enthusiasm and knowledge!

Love the pod. My only critique is that the audio of the guests is often sketchy. The NCAA preview pod was essentially unlistenable.
