Level Playing Field - A LGBT sports podcast


Aug 6, 2019

Welcome to season 2 of my podcast. The new season starts with former NFL player Ryan O'Callaghan. Ryan grew up in Redding, California. After impressing some coaches he ended up playing college ball at Cal. We talk about all of that plus spending time with the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. Throughout his time in the NFL he struggled to come to terms with his sexuality all while becoming addicted to pain pills, pills that were prescribed to him by NFL teams. 

This episode we do get a little dark and talk about Ryan's suicidal thoughts and depression. 

What we touch on in this episode can be read about in detail with his new book 'My Life on the Line'. The book comes out on September 3rd. Pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or wherever you get your books.
