On Episode 5 of The River Rundown, we talk with Tennessee Titans tight end Anthony Firkser '17 about his career in Cambridge, his difficult journey to make an NFL roster, and his success with the Titans so far these last three years. We touch on Firk's memorable individual performance against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the playoffs, and the Harvard football fraternity in the NFL.
On Episode 4, we sit down with Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Brent Suter ’12 to talk about his path from college, through the minors, to the major leagues, and his passion for environmental sustainability and Earth Day. After spending several seasons in a hybrid role as a starter and a reliever, Suter has thrived out of the bullpen this season, already registering two wins and pitching to a 2.87 ERA for Milwaukee—who are first in the division.
In Episode 3, we talk with women's squash captains Maddie Chai '21 and Hannah Craig '21 about winning the program's sixth-straight national championship last season, leading a team during a pandemic, and professional squash aspirations.
On Episode 2 of The River Rundown, guests Christian Juzang ’20 and Robert Baker ’20 of Harvard hoops talk about playing professionally in Vietnam and Slovakia, the abrupt end to their senior season last March, and the miraculous March Madness run to the Final Four by Christian's brother, Johnny.
