Youth Sports

Our hosts tackle a topic they've long wanted to in this episode - youth sports - and in particular, the trend toward having teens specialize in one sport at younger and younger ages.  Their guests include Jon Solomon of the Aspen Institute, which will release a 'children's bill of rights in sports' on August 12th.  Three members of the city of Asheville's parks and recreation department also join the program to discuss what's happening locally.
