This week we speak to former Pittsburgh Steeler Ryan Shazier about his new book: Walking Miracle: How Faith, Positive Thinking, and Passion for Football Brought Me Back from Paralysis…and Helped Me Find Purpose.

We also got Just Stand Up and Sit Your Ass Down awards to, respectively, a courageous Formula 1 driver who is speaking out against racism in the sport, and Enes Freedom, who appears to be posturing as a right-wing NBA athlete that the Fox News crowd can support. Don’t miss another great edition of Jake’s Takes as well. All this and more on this week’s show!
