Episode details

Hi there, Article Clubbers! This month, we’re reading and discussing “Going the Distance,” by journalist Gordy Megroz. It’s a great article that explores the relationship between marathon runners who break the rules and independent investigators eager to catch them cheating.

Last week, I got the chance to talk with Mr. Megroz and ask him some of our questions. He was generous and thoughtful — and shared some extra details about Derek Murphy and Frank Meza not included in his piece. Please take a listen!

Note: There are spoilers, so you may want to read the article first before listening.

After listening to the interview, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. Did anything surprise you or change your ideas about the article?
