Excerpts: Among the guests in episode #1 was Odell Beckham Jr. When he joined them in the chairs the subject came up of how superstar athletes are sometimes treated in public.

Like I’m a puppet, you know what I mean? And it’s like to me, that doesn’t feel good, but it’s like, damn, that’s what life became. But, can you ever really detach from that?”
