Right before they retired after a storied career at UW Oshkosh, longtime track and cross country John Zupanc and Deb Vercauteren sat down with student multimedia reporters Eric Balkman and Andrew Munger to reflect on their years at the University. These podcasts are audio-only.

In this opening segment of the podcast, the two coaches discuss their mixed emotions about leaving, when they knew the programs were turning into national powerhouses and if they could have achieved the same success at a different university.
