Love this pod

Learn something new every time I listen to one of Yogi’s interviews - the way he connects with people and draws out their story is truly a skill. This podcast will make you care about these individuals and all they have to offer which is so much more than just playing football!

Tell me more….

As a USC alumni I’m grateful for this podcast and really getting to know some of the other players around the league. It’s easy to hate on any other school on any given Saturday but this show has made me a fan of the real people in those other uniforms. Yogi I love that you don’t just ask a question, get a quick answer and then move on. It’s great to hear you say “tell me more…” “what’s an example of that…” “how does that help you?…” Keep bringing these players stories to light!

I have to ask, what is the “it” behind the awkward sound effects in the middle of the interviews this season? As a listener, music or different sound effects in the middle of an interview usually signal some kind of transition is coming or there’s a commercial break coming or something like that but that isn’t the case here. Just random riffs playing over the guests response and then the interview keeps rolling🤷🏼‍♂️
