Jam Street Media Weekly Update
Weekly Update - Nov. 9, 2020
What do you get when a world series champion, a wrongfully convicted person, and a celebrity booker walk into a podcasting network? Last week's line-up at Jam Street Media.
Reunited and it feels so good. In last weeks episode, Ross Stripling was back together with his former Los Angeles Dodgers teammate, Corey Seager. Fresh off his World Series and MVP win, Seager joins the guys to talk about that fateful moment when Blake Snell was pulled from the game.
It was a decision that rocked the world of sports, and shifted the energy of the game in favor of the Dodgers.
Seager wasn’t the only champion in the house, with Strip spending most of the season in LA he too earned himself a ring.
He started the show off by discussing the emotions he felt not only watching his former team win, but having his former manager Dave Roberts shout him out during the acceptance speech.
If you haven’t heard the story of Amanda Knox, this is an episode you won’t want to miss. She joins John Roa to discuss her wrongful conviction, and eventual exoneration, for the murder of her roommate. Before her conviction was overturned she spent four years in an Italian prison, and her life has not been the same since.
We get to hear about how she has to still face the trials in the court of public opinion, and how she was pronounced guilty before her innocence could be proven.
She and John talk about how her experience inspired her to reach out and improve the lives of others who are going through similar hardships.
Last week, the guys get into the business side of entertainment with celebrity booker, Mike Esterman.
They don’t call him the “broker to the stars” for no reason. Esterman has come across celebs like Pamela Anderson, Kim Kardashian, Smokey Robinson, and Lady Gaga just to name a few. So, he knows a thing or two about the business of booking celebs.
He drops his knowledge with Mark, Tuddy, and Davey Dave about how to handle the hard and confusing business of entertainment. From making money to managing the Hollywood elite he gets into all of that and more.
