Talking Grammer, Ep. 9: Rus Bradburd, Shawn Harrington and ‘All the Dreams We’ve Dreamed’

In Episode 9, I veer off course from the usual Lobo hoops podcasts and talk to the author of “All the Dreams We’ve Dreamed” and the central figure of that book, former NMSU Aggie point guard Shawn Harrington, who in 2014 was shot while taking his daughter to school on Chicago’s West Side. Bradburd, an NMSU professor and former Aggies coach who recruiting Shawn to Las Cruces in the 1990’s, talks about why he wrote the book and his relationship with his former player. Shawn walks us through that tragic morning and talks about what he hopes people take from the book.

I talk some with Rus about his history at NMSU, UTEP and even about his time as a professional coach in Ireland when he coached former Aggie and current UNM Lobos assistant Brandon Mason. But the podcast is primarily about his book and gun violence in Chicago. Portions of an interview I had with Bradburd and Harrington are used in this podcast, but it was not a conversation designed specifically for a podcast, which is why you hear Bradburd’s hands-free cell phone headset rubbing against something as he walks in part of his interview.

The podcast accompanies an article in the May 3 edition of the Journal that can be read HERE: Shawn’s story: Book on shooting of former Aggie shines light on gun violence
