The OTT Podcast Episode 1: Shannon Spake


Today, I’m debuting my new podcast on the KSR feed, entitled “The OTT.” What better guest to kick things off than ESPN’s Shannon Spake? 


Shannon was in Lexington for a few days and was nice enough to chat with me via Skype. Highlights include:

— What it was like to be serenaded by Isaac Humphries, who opened up to Shannon about his struggles with bullying growing up

— Behind-the-scenes scoop on the Breakfast Club, including her shaming Jamal Murray for only lifting 20 lbs. dumbbells

— Tyler Ulis for National POY

— Training for half-marathons and half-Ironmans

— How she balances work and life as a mother of 6-year-old twins

(FYI, if you’re curious about all that noise in the background, Shannon was at Bluegrass Airport during our conversation and I have no idea how to edit all of that out.)

To listen, just subscribe to “Kentucky Sports Radio” on iTunes or stream on Podbay.

And be sure to send Shannon a tweet to thank her for coming on.

    Looking forward to listening to it this afternoon. It wouldn’t be a KSR podcast if the sound quality was great, so I wouldn’t worry about the airport noise.:)
