Recorded 01/12/2015. We are proud and honored to have the legendary Rafer Johnson as our guest this week. As you are likely aware, Johnson is an American former decathlete and occasional actor. He was the 1960 Olympic decathlon gold medalist after receiving the silver medal four years earlier at the 1956 games. Additionally, he was the 1960 Olympics flag bearer, and he lit the Olympic Flame at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

Many today also remember Johnson’s heroic actions during the moments immediately after Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 assassination, where he along with Rosey Grier, both who happened to be in the vicinity at that moment, tackled the assailant, Sirhan Sirhan.

After the Olympics, Johnson turned his celebrity into acting, sportscasting, and public service. For instance, he was instrumental in helping to create the California Special Olympics. For further biographical information, please see Johnson’s Wikipedia page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rafer_Jo...

This promises to be an exciting show. Both Ken and Tai look forward to this most special interview.
