"It's about the iconic 1969 Mexico City Olympic Games photograph of Tommie Smith and John Carlos on the victory stand of the 200m with their fists raised, black socks and no shoes with their heads bowed during the national anthem. It's the story behind that photograph and it's an amazing story. I'm about as serious of a track fan as you can be. I think I knew about 10% of that story before we started working on it. We walk you through the fact that everyone is from San Jose State – which is so strange. San Jose State is the greatest track and field program in the world in the 1960s."

Chris Chavez and Kyle Merber sit down with New York Times best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell to discuss his first trip to Eugene, Oregon for the World Championships and his latest podcast project "Legacy of Speed", which aims to tell the story of John Carlos and Tommie Smith's iconic protest at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.
