Michael Bennett is a unicorn. The NFL defensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys, is both a Super Bowl Champion and self-described feminist. Pele Bennett is no slacker either: she’s a food advocate and a skilled Polynesian dancer. Together, the Bennetts have taken on everything from racial justice work to authoring a children’s book to parenting three daughters. (Did we mention they’re high-school sweethearts?) In Mouthpeace, the Bennetts invite listeners and guests into their professional and private lives to take on topics provocative and personal: from sitting out the national anthem to keeping their sex life fresh. Like Michael and Pele, Mouthpeace manages to be many things at once: hilarious, inquisitive, and unfiltered. NSFW: explicit content. First episode drops January 31, 2020.

    Michael, Pele & Dr. Eddie Glaude (Listen Again)

    Michael, Pele & Dr. Eddie Glaude (Listen Again)

    Dr. Eddie Glaude has been everywhere on Twitter, MSNBC for his engaging responses to the haywire politics of the day. In this previously-aired episode, we first hear Pele and Michael reflect on the role of their very different religions in their family. Then, they are joined by Dr. Glaude, the chair of the African American Studies department at Princeton University and a religious scholar, to consider how religion and blues-soaked hope can influence their lives, their parenting, and their pursuit of a world filled with more justice and love.

    Mouthpeace Greatest Hits, Season 1

    Mouthpeace Greatest Hits, Season 1

    In the season finale, Michael and Pele look back at some of their favorite moments from 25 episodes, and give thanks to each one of their guests. They reminisce about their conversations with Chef Edouardo Jordan speaking about being a top chef and a Black man in the white-dominated restaurant industry, and former Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke telling America to “Wake the F*ck Up”. They look back on how inspired they were by their deep dive with Olympian and activist Dr. John Carlos about his experience protesting at the 1968 Olympics, and what it meant to them to record in person with their good friends Pro-Bowler Cliff Avril and his wife Tia Avril on lack of representation and advocacy for women in sports. And of course, a look back at Season 1 of Mouthpeace wouldn’t be complete without highligthing one of their many conversations about ... sex. This is the best (and probably only) post-game analysis you’ll hear for a while!
