Episode details

When in Tampa, one must visit Cigar City Brewing to drink Jai Alai. So why not share some IPAs with one of the most downright curious players in the entire league?

Patrick Laird started a summer reading program at Cal, had fans getting his stat line tatted on their thigh as a rookie with the Miami Dolphins and remains an intensely-curious individual to the bone. He's entering his fifth pro season in 2023, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

We chatted about everything: His wild rise, the value of reading a good book in the Twitter Age, the concept of "free will" (he's not a believer) and how football can be such a powerful force of good. He knows such tribalism is core to our biology.
