An interview with Ryan Squanda:
Interviewer: "What is your favorite memory of running club?
RS: "I can make people do really stupid things--I don't know why they listen to me. One time, I literally made like 40 people run through the Red Cedar River. It was amazing."
Interviewer: "How did you accomplish that?"
RS: "I said, 'You guys, we're going to do this thing today. It's to commemorate Chase Taylor. It's Dreamweaving with Squanda. And we're going to run across this river.'"
Interviewer: "And you said that there were 40 people that followed you?"
RS: "Yeah, it was absurd."
Interviewer: "Were they really new members?"
RS: "Yeah, they were incredibly new. They--"

RS: "My other interests include Jonathan Sollish and Lucas Bowman."
Interviewer: "So can we go back to this Dreamweaving thing for a second?"
RS: "Dreamweaving! It's one of my favorite pastimes."
Interviewer: "Can you give me a direct definition of this Dreamweaving?
RS: "You just lead people on this adventure run. You run through rivers and forests and jaywalk. You're just stupid."
Interviewer: "And then have their dreams been weaved?"
RS: "Yes, you just kinda weave in and out of places. You can ding-dong-ditch houses--"
Jonathan Sollish: "Squanda has dreams of a very attractive Lutheran--Lutheran?"
RS: "I am Lutheran"
Jonathan Sollish: "Lutheran girl. So if you're Lutheran, even better for Squanda."
RS: "I hit ninth in the order of my church softball team."
RS: "That's it. That's all. I don't have anything else to say."
