Inspirational + personable + entertaining interviews
Great insight into how these pro athletes have incorporated their athletic (and business savvy) skills into the entrepreneurial world and beyond!! Inspirational, entertaining and personable interviews. David kills it!
Inspiring and amazingly topical
Love it! Former pro athletes share an honest take on their journey, fame and their “brand” after sports.
These are perspectives and voices the world needs to hear, especially in today’s climate.
Meaningful look into athletes’ next acts
This podcast is on point. The Big Jump is filling a big void of coverage of what athletes are capable of outside of their sport. I really like that David gets his guests to open up in meaningful conversation- no locker room talk. And you really don’t have to be a fan of the guest’s particular sport to relate - it’s universally about what’s possible when reinventing oneself.
