Manage episode 296277957 series 2788371
In 2009, host Bryant McFadden met longtime sports broadcaster James Brown at the NFL's media bootcamp for active players. BMac used that advice from JB and now has this podcast where he gets to interview one of his mentors and one of the icons of the business. The two discuss everything from Brown's athletic background to the challenges of being a minority in the industry. They cover JB's life and career from trying out for the Hawks, appearing on Married...with Children and being the first person to interview Michael Vick after his release from jail. James shares a project that he's working on with Tony Dungy and how we can continue to take steps in the fight for social justice. Finally, we learn some insight on the cast of the NFL Today on CBS.
