For this show we were loaded with former UCLA athletes who were more than gracious enough to come on and give their side of the Bruin Fan Alliance.

This time we go in-depth as former UCLA track star and current BFA Chief of Operations Nijah Nelms talks about the expansion of the group and how they are trying to bring to Bruin family together.

Former football players-turned-actors Donovan Carter and Isaiah Bowens add to the discussion as they give their take on the Bruin Fan Alliance.

We then get into the lives of these former athletes after UCLA. We also get to hear what they think about certain topics like the NFL Draft, UCLA Football and a certain basketball coach. Needless to say, it was a great episode.
