Kassidy opted out of the season due to having Sickle Cell trait but also is a leader in the PAC-12 "We are United" movement, working to change the business college athletics has become. Tune in to hear Kassidy's account of the situation, his reasoning behind the multiple parts of the PAC-12 Unity movement demands, the reason why the movement came about and is so important, as well as some personal things about him.

    Our first bonus episode is here! Episode 7.5 gives the extended backstory of Michael Angelidis, our guest from episode 7.

He goes on to explain how Coach K of Duke connected him with a job opportunity in America, how Math is the reason he stayed in America, his personal growth as a person, and his experience coaching Kentwood, of Covington, WA., eventually leading them to a 4A State Basketball title in Washington State.
