    Mike Tyson High on Life, Fighting Under Influence, Loss, Legacy & 25 yrs Ago vs Holyfield

    25 years ago today, the infamous fight between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield occurred…and man that doesn’t even seem that long ago which means we are getting old! 

    But in a special edition of The Pivot, we are sitting down with the legend himself, Mike Tyson in a conversation covering everything from boxing, the highs and lows, evolving, relationships and business endeavors. 

    Considered the baddest mother f’er on the planet, the respect and admiration spans decades but so do the questions, as Ryan, Fred and Channing dive into the life and legacy not only one of the world's greatest athletes of all time but one of biggest bad asses we've ever seen.

    Mike opens up about some of the low moments shaping the man he is today and the transition from athlete to entrepreneur which has helped him get back on his feet after years of trials and tribulations. 

    Crediting his wife Kiki for a lot of his transformation, Mike goes in depth about evolving, having his heart broken and going to jail, which ironically, he says was the most peace he ever had in his life. Without all the loss, we never would see the rise.

    Mike’s new venture of Tyson 2.0 with his cannabis, Tyson bites and chocolates are opened during the episode making for a raw but epic show. And of course, Channing and Mike have to talk about the females over the years and compare stories which has everyone in tears. Tyson also reveals that his recent fights he fought on shrooms and wish he was able to do it during his actual career.

    Cam Newton Challenges Channing on the Bottom 5, Talks Personal Miscues & Legacy

    Opening up in a honest and humble conversation, Cam Newton sits down with Fred, Ryan and Channing to discuss everything that has been going on from football, to his personal life to recent issues with some of the statements he has made.

    A deep and impactful discussion between men on growth, learning from mistakes and how to keep moving forward when the cards are stacked against you. And Cam shared a powerful burst of what the fire he still has to play football every Sunday.

    Allowing the vulnerability to come through, Cam opens up about some mistakes he made with relationships and owning up to the responsibilities his choices have caused and accepting the fall out and positives that have come with it.

    Back to football- Cam challenges Channing on his statement of him not being one of the best 32 quarterbacks and asks him if the bottom of the pack is better than him. The two debate why he is or isn’t in that group and Channing says the league has deemed he is no longer going to be a starter a team.

    Fred believes Cam still can land on a team this season before they go back to talking about his college days and time at Florida, asking if the off the field incident that Cam got into during his early college which led him to leaving for Auburn.

    Ryan gets into Cam’s recent situation and the comments he made about women and he explains how they were taken out of context and how his remarks were intended. Understanding that his words will never be louder than the media’s, Cam shares his thoughts and the message behind his words.

    Understanding the role of being a black man and leader for youth, Cam talks about how his impact in the NFL should have been greater than Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and the Peyton Manning’s of the world because of his influence on all communities and not just his play on the field.

Wow, happy I found the Podcast

I am a big admirer of Ryan Clark, as an analyst. First saw him on Get Up and have followed him on the various shows every since.

Then heard about this podcast. Have just started to listen to them and they are “off the chain”. Informative, unscripted, candid, raw! He and his co-host do an excellent job of asking probing questions and “keeping it real”!

I Have only listened for one week, and have truly enjoyed the shows with Coach Thomlin, Cam Newton, and Charles Barley.

Looking forward to going back through the previously recorded shows as well as listening to the new ones!

10/10 recommend no Kappa

One of my favorite podcasts, period. Insiteful, allucidating, inspiring—just a few descriptors. Love how down to earth everyone is, considering the bread they've earned. Would love an interview with famous Jameis, with emphasis on his transition from the bucks to the saints, the journey of becoming a man instead of a boy, and how he navigated sitting behind Drew when the tallent was so much more by the end of Drew's HOF career. The other shoe to the cam nuten ep. Thanks for all yall do, and #GeauxLouisiana #GeauxTigers
