    #80 - Will Compton (of Bussin' With The Boys)

    Will Compton is an NFL linebacker and co-host of the popular sports podcast Bussin’ With The Boys with NFL offensive lineman Taylor Lewan. Compton and Lewan were some of the first professional athletes to start a podcast while still playing their respective sport.

    Compton tells Mike about his upbringing and about his motivations for getting into the podcasting industry. With Compton being a pro athlete himself, Bussin' With The Boys provides a level of conversation other athletes normally don't have in other interviews. Mike says that's why guests are more likely to open up and be more comfortable. Mike and Compton also talk about the positives and the negatives amongst the changing scenery of pro sports in America. If there’s one takeaway from this episode, it’s that Will Compton is one damn good Swiss Army Knife of an individual.
