Kejelcha is King, Gregorek Joins Sub 3:50 Club, Europeans, Tokyo, Wife Audio, Transgender Sport and Time to Retire 'Scalp'?

Yomif Kejelcha put on a show in Boston and Johnny Gregorek joined the sub 3:50 club. Laura Muir crushed it at Euros. Does that make the favorite for Worlds? Tokyo was cold, and we have an LRC first with wife audio of the race. Plus a look at NCAA indoors, transgender sport, and whether we need to give up 'scalping'. Full show notes below.
