The Matt Jones Podcast takes its turn honoring The Greatest. It begins with Tony Vanetti giving some hometown perspective before Matt is joined by Dave Kindred.

— How Ali’s image changed after the ’96 Olympics in Atlanta.
— Kindred’s personal perspective of Ali and how he will remember him.
— The symbiotic relationship between Ali and Howard Cosell.
