Remembering John Altobelli, Kobe, Gianna, and the Lives Lost in Calabasas


Jack is back after a brief two-week hiatus with four very special guests. First, former baseball player Daniel Delaney talks about the great life of his Orange Coast Pirates' coach, John Altobelli (2:30 - 24:10). Next, reporter, media relations specialist, and ESPN Phoenix personality Makayla Perkins tells her Kobe Bryant story from a 2019 Phoenix Mercury game she worked. She also discusses the impact Kobe had on women's sports (27:15 - 34:25). Parker Gatewood from American Ninja Warrior eulogizes his favorite athlete ever, and talks with Jack about Kobe's legacy, impact, and what steps the NBA should take to honor him (34:25 - 1:02:10). Finally, we end on a positive note, as Jack is joined by Pastor Jake Van Gilse for a conversation about finding hope and peace in times of tragedy and suffering (1:02:10 - 1:12:55).
