Running of the Bulls is coming to America! “The Great Bull Run” kicks of August 24th at a drag racing strip in Richmond Virginia. Yes, that’s on a concrete surface. A whopping 5,000 people have already signed up for that event. On October 19th, the people of Atlanta will have a chance to take on the bulls where the 1996 Olypics were held. The run will also make stops in Texas, Florida, California, Minnesota, Illinois and Pennsylvania. Unlike Spain’s version of bull runs, no animals will be harmed after the event.
Oh by the way, it’s Shark Week! Thank you to shark expert, Jeff Kurr, for joining today’s show to chat about his work on Shark Week. You can catch his special on The Discovery Channel this Wednesday and find out more in our full conversation over at xrock.com.
