The Velvet Voice of John Register returns, and this time we’re talking about his Paralympic experiences. John tells us how he was on track to make the Olympic team until a horrific accident closed that door and opened a window into the world of the Paralympics.
John talks about learning how the other half lives when experiencing the Atlanta 1996 Games, and how good hosts can create an exceptional Games, like Sydney did in 2000. Plus, an Aretha Franklin encounter!
If you didn’t hear the first part of John’s interview, it’s episode 157.
