Politics has become perhaps the most intense team sport in our country today. Differing political views often divide people, but in the case of today’s podcast guest, having conversations about politics has brought an important friendship into my life with documentary film maker, Gotham Chopra. Growing up in Boston he became an avid sports fan, and after starting his career with Channel One News covering the war in the Middle East, he became one of the most highly regarded sports documentary film makers in the country. With films focusing on stars like the late great Kobe Bryant, and his close friend Tom Brady, Gotham has made a career out of reminding Americans that sports truly are a way to celebrate this country and the incredible stories behind the athletes we love to cheer on.
