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