Remember When The Rock Broke the News About Osama bin Laden’s Assassination?
EPISODE 21: An invasive Share & Tell with Ariel Helwani and Katie Nolan.
Some episodes, some days, I only find out what I really wanted to find out about at the end of the show. Which is the sign of a truly and delightfully unpredictable Share & Tell. (Or: rank hosting incompetence.)
Like today. Katie Nolan — who continues to, yes, rule — and I initiate our old friend Ariel Helwani, who’s ostensibly here because he’s the best and hardest-working combat sports reporter in the world. And together, we answer questions. Which include:
Why did Ariel wind up in England last week, using ring girls as human shields?
What is it about video games that makes Katie Nolan want to live inside them? (Shoutout to Hanif Abdurraqib, one of America’s finest poets/essayists, and The Paris Review.)
Does anyone really want to be a “newsbreaker”?
Speaking of which:
BY THE WAY! Our deep-dive this coming Tuesday will be PTFO’s Halloween Preview Spectacular. Till then, let us all try to enjoy a weekend.
