This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features our monthly fan question episode. Before we dove into the fan questions, we recapped the Tokyo Olympic quad, and Bourne's journey through it with Trevor Crabb, finishing ranked No. 11 in the world yet just shy of qualifying for the Tokyo Olympic Games.

We chatted about Mewhirter's five-week FIVB stretch, competing in Bulgaria, Sochi, and Bulgaria twice more. You can find a full written recap of Mewhirter's journey at VolleyballMag.

And then, of course, we dove into fan questions, beginning with...

- What are our thoughts on the AVP schedule, which was recently announced?

- What is the purpose, and best format, for the AVP Next Gold events, which are growing in popularity and size?

- What's next for Tri Bourne, with this Olympic quad now finished?

- How do you handle burnout?

And much, much more. This episode is a comprehensive one, as we had much to talk about -- AVP, Olympics, FIVB, you name it.
