"gotham chopra" Discussed on First Class Fatherhood
"And save up to sixty six percents off your order at my pillow joining me now. First-class class father got them show pro what to first-class father. Thanks for having me man. I'm really excited to be here. It's a pleasure to have you. Let's let's kick it off like this. How many kids do you have. How old audio. I only have one. He's thirteen he just turned thirteen And so that puts him in seventh grade right now. Yeah very cool. I yeah i i got four kids. I got a thirteen year old in the mix myself there. What kind of sports activities is he. He's big into taekwondo. That's probably as big you know. He's a second degree black belt. He's been doing it for a number of years and then he's recently he's also gone through this huge growth spurt so basketball is a sports pretty good. But what's interesting is he. Basically because of the pandemic hasn't played competitively like five on five or anything like that for a couple months. We're all kind of waiting to sake. I think he's going to be pretty good. But you know because he's just he's big and sort of really filled out recently But you know waiting for the other side of this thing. Yeah a lot of sports. A lot of everything been affected by the pandemic solo. Let's just do this here. God if you take them into here to hit my listeners. But a little bit about your background what you do. So i'm the co founder of a company called religion of sports whereas sports content media company. I co founded it with michael strahan and tom brady You know i'm a huge sports fan. Always have been my whole life but you know when it comes to storytelling. I see sports is incredible backdrop through which tell stories you know about human potential and you know really the best versions of ourselves. That's what athletes are. Also all the lessons when we were just talking about my son like you know the thing. I talked to my son about all the time. Listen you know. It's the likelihood of him becoming a professional athlete. Miniscule but still the things that you can. It's the reason we put our kids in. Sports programs is because it's about you know Accountability it's about failure about resilience. Those are the things. I'm sports really teach us. And that's really at the heart of like all the content we create so i work with a lot of elite athletes from. I worked at kobe till lebron tom brady. Obviously if a new project with simone biles But the stories we tell our you know grounded in what makes them human. What just makes the mythic batteries are awesome. Got them in. And i know that too it. Also my kids. It helps learn with With teamwork how to work well with. It's great even though like you say if the kids not going to be the next Kobe bryant at least he's getting in there and he's learning how to work with team. There's a lot of fundamentals of life that can be learned through sports teams so I agree with you there and so along this journey that you've had here about. How old were you then when you became a dad and had to becoming a father. Change your perspective on life. Why son is Thirteen and i'm bout to turn forty six so You know i early. Thirties is when i had my first son or my first kid on my only kid but You know i would. I all sort of what. I think i realized you know is having a kid taught me to see the world outside of myself you know. It's it's just natural like you know that we see the world from this point of view. That's how i grew up. But i think once you have a child like you start to see the world from their point of view start to certainly see the future. Like what i was the legacy i wanna. What's the kind of work i wanted to do. What kind of service can i be. Because you know my child is going to inherit this. And so i think that's really like what changed everything for me And i it. I think a lot of people sort of put off having kids because they like. I need to be ready. I need to like it. Needs to be the right. Timing and what i found is i was one of those people too. I think we're all kind of those people. But i found like things started to fall into place for me professionally personally after because you know. The kid is the most important thing. Your life is an organizing principle. Right you start making choices based on that and and so for me just was like this. Incredibly Synchronous thing like just everything started to fall in place. After i had my son. Yeah well said. And that's one of the things i try to encourage a lot of the young dads that are about to be dad's. Listen to this. Show here. I try to bring on all heavy hitters a lot. Leaving sports guys themselves dion sanders. Kurt warner's been on a couple of times. These guys that are really just crushed it in life and they say you know what despite these amazing accomplishments. It's really only been through experience. A fatherhood that i've gotten the sense of fulfilment life so that's really what i'm trying to cover here with. The show is to say it is something to embrace not some to avoid What would you say got them or the top values that you're hoping to instill in your in your son grown up. You know so the things we talk about you know. We talked a lot about it this year. Obviously with the pandemic with schools being shutdown remote. Learning all this stuff. We talk about resilience. You know like again using sports analogy the best. You know baseball players in the history of Of hitting they fail the majority of the time the vast majority of the time if you're three hundred hitter that's hall of fame in standard others have been times. You're striking out grounding outlying out. Whatever it is. You're you're quote failing but it's the ability to get up get back to the plate. Take another swings. We talk a lot about resilience. That's what i say. We're taking away from this year. Retain about resilience. I'm i think the other thing. We talked a lot about is like. Don't take yourself too seriously. you know have fun. Like what did things your most passionate about And and how do you really like focus on that and you know. I've never been one of those parents. That's really about like well. You got to you know. Study hard and you have to even the things that you hate you have to really. I mean i think focus and discipline is important but i also think like joy like you know One of i work with a lot with. Tom brady and one of the things he says lot. He's at his best when he plays with joy. So i think that's the other thing. Is i just sort of have have fun. Then i guess the third thing you know You know like my wife. And i joke all the time about. Sounds like you know. The one thing we want to do is like don't raise them. Astle is like be compassionate. Be empathetic be giving be grateful for everything you have and be of service and so you know when you look at the world and you look at like the many things that are going wrong right now. you know. It's not someone else's problem like how do you be of service. How do you recognize a problem. And then be part of the solution. Let's said that's the other thing you know. We we talk a lot about in our family yet. Goodstuff got the man. I had the honour. I had a chance to speak with tom. Brady as super bowl fifty three media day this year the last three days. This year was all virtual. I was in the virtual room with tom. Did he get a chance to to to speak with him this year. But that has to be Quite an experience you to work with these high level performing athletes and what was the genesis of the religion of sports. And what have you been able to personally take away from from working close together with guys like Kobe by woah. What's that what's the takeaway you. I mean the the origin of religions forces me you know i basically grew up in boston massachusetts as a die hard sports fan as the first one in my family to be born outside of the indian subcontinent some first generation american in for me now becoming a celtics red sox and patriots bruins fan was part of it was cultural assimilation. You know is basically how. I became american. Then my father is deepak chopra and has had sort of molesters career kind of in the spiritual realm and all that ice. Tell him early on. When i was kid is like you know everything. You talk about an wisdom. Traditions like pilgrimages and cathedrals mythology that exists in sports. Your sports fan. You know what it's like to be part of a community bigger than yourself. The other side of that is the athlete in nine. You talk to some of the people. You mentioned the kobi's the tom's lebron simone cetera. They feel.
"gotham chopra" Discussed on The Playbook
"They are about issues that are divisive in the country is it is it is it more women in sports right now? I think it's probably more of a movement I think the stigma has sort of been removed. Look it's been going on for for generations decades from Jesse Owens, nineteen thirty, six Olympics. Of course, you know Tommy Smith Than MOHAMMAD-ALI WE SEEN Martina Navratilova Craig Hodges All these Great Athletes, Warren Warren Moon yeah really been outspoken take positions. But I think there was a lot of backlash and while there is still is some backlash. It's not what it once was and so what I think probably be seen as a guy like Lebron James With who he is has really just fully leaned into it and really taking on that role of activism and because he has so much respect athlete community I think he gave cover and so to a lot of younger athletes now you see guys like. Malcolm Brogdon or Jalen Brown the Boston Celtics who for them it's like. It's instinctive like why wouldn't I say something like you see something you say something where he's if it was a choice for athletes of the past because they knew you know what came with it. I mean, we've all sort of now the Michael Jordan stories of like you. Of Not taking this in because there were consequences to it in Michael Jordan's teammate Craig Hodges got blacklisted from the NBA for sort of taking a stand. So I think Lebron has sort of you know and he has the luxury of being able to do it without worrying too much about the consequences. I think because of someone like him now you're seeing he's also given a platform to all these other athletes and then the other one I would give a lot of credit to his I the US women's national team and actually the WNBA I don't think they get as much credit but I think there's been a lot of female athletes have been really outspoken obviously about equality but also about social justice and they've really again made it very acceptable. And you brought it up with two incredibly smart athletes. One one. Sort of one thing that sometimes you'll pick on with an athlete or an actor someone who's a celebrity if the not well read or the not very neat if they're not very steeped in the issues, but they have an opinion people jump on them more than they would soon your neighbor but you you happen to partner up with two of the smartest athletes in the business. So that makes your job a little bit easier I guess, right? So look I think it's the consequences of fame and I. You know because of my father I've sort of grown up around it. This new matter what you say you're GONNA take a lot of foreign against and I, think you know. I think what happens with athletes especially, ones have been successful as they have a lot of self-confidence like you don't get to the level of these guys in in these athletes unless you have a lot of you know the expression analysis. Was Talks about mental toughness you know, and so you don't get to that level mental toughness helps you in this environment especially as polarized as everything is that no matter what you say you're GonNa take a lot of. People are GonNa have a lot of misconceptions. People are gonNA attach whatever their allegiances are loyalties onto you..

All right. So I was trying to go back to work my family had a trip planned I for some reason I was always under the impression it was the first week of August it's on, it's on block and I booked a block island.

"gotham chopra" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Every great product. Every project is the function of a relationship so like the the process around making the film. A comes out of the process of having a relationship so with Tom had been several years. I've really got to know him and his family. And while I think there was a project out in the ether that we sort of talked about really took a few years for that trust to be there. In order to really embarked on that and I'd say similar with Kobe Kobe. I'm very different personalities. And either delegate with Koby livers no version of delicate with toby. He's like can toby. Was He thrived off of confrontation? I mean we all saw it on the court and he was as bad too and And the team that it's best when he was he in shack right each other's throats like having fistfight in practice he's sort of thrived off of that sort of confrontation and the vet. Yeah you sort of adapting the good things that I'm a fan to like huge fan of up sports and I've watched these guys play inside observed over time like Oh right. It's like with Kobe like you. Can you just gotTa get in his face and like and that's how he responds and they use the analogy and you know I feel bad but I know if we all know. The legend of smush Parker Kobe Bryant. Kobe did the every team he just went at them. And you talked to all of his teammates and like when they showed up in training camp he went at them. And if if you let him run you over he did Whereas if you stood up to him you know he kind of respected you answer. That was like the approach I took with him on the film making Tom. Who's very sort of collaborative strengths in the seem as and tries to adapted very demanding but he is very collaborative. In that way you're able to sort of have more of a collaborative conversation I guess. So it's always. It's a little bit the same. But it's always a little bit different because you adapt to the personalities and you also understand what their strengths are and what they're really. GonNa WanNa talk about so you kind of play to that and then you sort of find the right moment to sort of raise the okay. We're GONNA have to talk about this thing whether that's you know. Yeah Colorado or deflate gate or whatever you know all these other things Gotham Chopra is joining us. Filmmaker the entrepreneur the author Tom Verse Time Kobe. Bryant's Muse and now. He is helping direct Tom. Brady's production company one ninety nine productions. The spotty was drafted by the way one. Ninety nine first series is unseen football You have a new podcast with your dad. Deepak about cove in nineteen. I'll get to that in a second I I do want to address this. You said documentary. Work is not journalism but storytelling. I agree by the way And I think all documentarian have a bias. I can recall with my wife. Got Them and you may disagree with this but during making a murder. She was just outraged that he was being framed. And I kept saying honey. This is not necessarily journalism He did Stock Women and he tortured animals. That's not normal. There's some the wiring here and I said my wife. I kept saying these are not necessarily journalists. They're telling you a story and everybody has biases and in this case they tend to do early Give the benefit of the doubt to the young man who you know was was ultimately jailed. So when you say you're not it's not journalism but storytelling Gotham. Don't use still though at a core of value system believe you are doing some level of journalism because storytelling still has to be accurate. Even if it's dramatic no great question and look. I think that this idea objectivity is the outdated. We're all subjective role. Now we're influenced by the insulin place social media. We listen we hear so many different things and so and I think it's really important to be Upfront and not to say that. That point of view can't change over time. The more you immerse yourself in a story or character but I do think we spend a lot of time on the the finance like we sort of agonized and torture like the The subject I worked with. Which is you know. We need to have a point of view. Like why are we doing? What is this about these things? Take time and working with Bobi the two year process to produce news into Tom Versus time You know it was across the season that I of the game. I hear shot up and dribble with Lebron like a couple of years ago that say. Why are we doing this? We're going you know like a lot of these guys. They don't need to do it. I mean these are very successful. Wealthy famous. So why are we doing it? Why are we investing this time? Why are we talking about these things and I think having that point of view that perspective is really important? Otherwise it's sort of like it's love reality show. I mean I'm films now so we you know. I'm always like hey. We're making a film. We're making documentary series. Where not just creating a reality show and I think that's important. I think obviously you have a obligation to the audience and to the people are also in their time and money in some cases. Watch these things to have a level of honesty and offensive city. So it's a balance You know I think it's the person I really loved that process. I love these. You know and neither relationships I mean I stay in touch with staff obviously like I said. Talk to all the time You Know Koby you know to the end. Just in terms of like the relationship there so You know it's more than just like hey we're we're just following these guys around for time It's really sort of immersing in their lives in finding a way away telling the story around support for the heard comes from our friends at rocket mortgage by quicken loans. Home today is so much more than it was yesterday right but.
"gotham chopra" Discussed on The Documentary Life
"Gotham Chopra is an American author filmmaker and entrepreneur. He is the son of alternative medicine. Celeb- Deepak Chopra a man who would be the focus of his first documentary feature decoding. Deepak in two thousand fifteen choper created religion of sports a six part documentary series examining how sports can profoundly influenced societies and cultures in a manner that extends beyond entertainment value. Religion of sports is also the name of the Media Company which he co owns with. Michael Strahan and Tom Brady speaking of Brady. The quarterback and his Jersey are the subject of religions latest documentary the Great Brady Heist. Welcome to the show. Gotha may appreciate you coming on today to the documentary life. Yeah thanks so much for having me. I'm excited to be here and and always like talking to to fellow artists and with fellow. Artists is is really exciting for me absolutely so Gotham. I think a nice way to start these conversations. We always like to get a little bit of context. How did you find your way to documentary? I think I've always been just storyteller and like someone who's really been but as a consumer of loves great STORIES GROWING UP. I'm first generation American In terms like I'm the first person in my family to be born outside of the Indian subcontinent and so growing up in America. How we kinda connected culturally with My sister homeland India was like through was through comic books. And just like you know like videos and stuff like that a two. I was always like from the ground up from you know from as far back as I can remember like just really passionate about mythology and stories and just understanding the way the world worked Through great storytelling. I think over time you know as as is sort of like involved you know and I was just like one of those people that early on. Who sort of like fascinated with cameras and just like always trying to document the right and you know my first. Iteration really yeah. The filmmaker was more as a journalist reporter. And then you know I think it really coincided. Probably turn of the two thousand with like the evolution of technology in terms of Camera Technology illegally. Gm and social media. So it's been a genesis across you know as far back as I can remember so a lot of the focus of today's conversation is going to be about sports documentaries and and it seems to me that you're a great person to talk to about that. That's why we've had you on today so I think we should just get right into that. Which is a religion of sports? Of course there's religious sports the six part documentary series originally which you did in two thousand fifteen and then there's religion of sports this big media company that produces things like podcasts produces obviously a long and short form video how in why did religion of sports become a thing for you. Yeah growing up in a place like Boston Massachusetts which is where I was born and raised a first generation American. You Know I. I was a huge sports fan. I sort of looking back. Every sport was like how I became. Or Yeah how assimilated to America like my family all from the Indian subcontinent in no do the red sox or celtics surveyed sir. Bruins were late for me growing up in Boston going to high school with you know. Mostly Irish Catholic kids in From Jenner going back generations in northeast like sports was how I I think identified and and became part of a community sales. Just like was a huge sports fan. I think overtime as I grew up in my father in particular you know had his own. No He's professional. Transformation into becoming Deepak Chopra who we all know right now as like you know this spiritualists and bestselling author it's et Cetera. Really started with a personal transformation in his life. Probably one of the but I was a teenager and I think looking back into now. I realized I used to say this. My Dad is like you know everything you talk about. In wisdom traditions and spiritual traditions religion et cetera exists. Sports like Fenway. Park is a cathedral right. I was growing up. Where a cursed franchise The Celtics and the boss. Old Boston Garden was a hallowed ground. In the you know the big three and all that stuff like I saw sports through as much as the fan I was S. Assad through this sort of unique lend. That's how I consumed it Was through this kind of quasi spiritual perspective. It's the origins of religion is sports. Really like Go back to that. And then I think you know more from the filmmaking standpoint I you know I was like I said a reporter and a storyteller and all the stuff I think it was really around. I I don't know the exact dates when ESPN launched the thirty. For thirty franchise but thirty for thirty for me as a young filmmaker sort of became. And I think a lot of people became thing is like oh I can be a sports fan and I I. I think before that it was just. Kinda like yeah. You did sports on your own time. Like that was like a personal passion. Rice thirty for thirty. You know kind of legitimized it in some ways as an art form and I remember you another the two Escobar's and once brothers and some of these things that were just to ask ourselves great and like you know sort of brought together my passion sort of reporting and and you know like issues going on all around the world and Sports Ed side. Think that's kind of how the early sort of inkling of like I think while I was sort of working on decoding. The started to watch out these thirty for thirty. And we're like Oh like I could do this but with the thing that I'm most passionate about. Yeah Right. Yeah what. What is it about sports? Right what is it about sports that make such compelling documentary? I mean sports are first of all. They're they're mythic great. Sports are about human potentials or are about you know the thrill of victory and triumph but also the tragedy of failure and loss So I think like it has all the sort of story elements and overcoming adversity and Just struggle and stuff like that I think it has all those qualities that make for great storytelling but also think like the universality of it like. I'll say there's not a place on the planet you can't go where people aren't obsessed with sports and sometimes it's like the biggest you know you go to. Spain and F C Barcelona Real Madrid like a two two of the most iconic in franchise in multi billion dollar franchise each of them. But it's a passion there. Then you can go like to you. You said Cambodia or rural Tibet Etc Any fine in every village. There's you know kids. Obsessed with the sport lay or somehow they're watching those F C Barcelona in there watching the Ronaldo's messages instantly. It's you know wherever you go. People are passionate about these sports in these communities. Form so Yeah I think it's just it's as as I am a fan of. I can really watch any sport and participate and still die hard fan of like those Boston. Teams. I think storytelling perspective. I L- look at sports as this great backdrop for for storytelling. I've I've not one of those you know we don't do a lot of like what you would call like the all nothing's or the you know just like the sports stories trying to say like. How does this appeal to a fan? That again why thirty for thirty so much as like you know. How does this appeal beyond the fan? I should say that's right person. Who's not you know doesn't particularly care votes or doesn't really care about that team but that can get sort of like you know. See the see the deeper story there. Well in a segues perfectly into my next question which is really. How do you make a sports doc? Something a non sports person would want to see right because we consider ourselves as doc filmmakers storyteller so regardless of what an often as filmmakers were embracing a passion that we might have right over exploring a passion that we might have. Somebody else has that maybe a lot of other people do not have so in the case of sports. You're presenting a story presenting a documentary film and a large part of your audience. May in fact be or no I segment of your audience may fact be a non sports person? So is that something that you're you're pretty conscious of when you make your doc films or is that something that religious sports conscious of or do you guys just say. Look we know what our audience is? These are docks meant for people that consume sports. Now I mean I think it's almost like I'd say our brand of storytelling is very character driven. And so it's really trying to. I think like the the DNA that has evolved in the company over the last few years no matter if it's like a big tent pole project that's following. You know an iconic athlete like Tom. Radio Kobe Bryant a couple years ago. It's head is or it's like it's non celebrity athlete or or something like that. It's like why does this matter and say why sports matter what what is this telling us about the human condition or a community and we really sort of agonize over that point of view. I mean I'd like to say you know I torture whether it's you know my collaborators or even sometimes our subjects say there's a thing I can definitely say this with With your audience. It says I'm a SNOB film SNOB and they we're making films. Were not making reality shows. I think the main difference. There's like intention like when you are going to follow a charter. Sorry about that when wanting to follow a character across year or something like that. What are we trying to say like? Why are we doing sake? What's the deeper for this because otherwise my great fear is like Oh God this is a reality. Show cameras rolling. That's you are someone who is connected to connect to high profile names at this point and you in quite frankly you may have been at an earlier age because if your father was so my question for you is speaking to our audience. First AND SECOND TIME. Doc filmmakers who may not and probably most likely don't have the kind of connections or accessed at someone like yourself or that religion of sports does how can we start to become Connected or how. Can we start to gain access if we believe we have a great story And maybe it involves a pro sports celebrities or a Pro Sports League entity. I'd love if you could share some tips on. Look if I'm not connected to somebody if I don't have access. How do I start to gain some access to make my sports documentary? That may be as about a league or a team or about a well-known a high profile. Name well I mean we can turn the get into tactics in terms of like how you reach out. Who Do you reach attitude? What do you say then I mean I love it? I love it happy to do that but I would say you know I. It really goes back to that core. Like what's what's the story I think access to some degree has sort of become United States. Obviously from a place of privilege but like because we have access but it's sort of like It's a commodity like everybody has access. I mean people every athlete. I work with right now. Bigger small most of them have you know some of them have their own production companies. Everybody's got a camera in their hand. Everyone's documenting everything. Everyone's got like a big social on instagram following. Your facebook Ever take a lot of the things that used to be like. So I've got access or you know. I know somebody at Netflix Sir facebook. Or whatever like those. Don't matter as much I would say I defining thing is like okay. Cool you got access but like like I said before. What are you trying to say? Why are you doing this? What's the point like what's going to separate this from a you know thousands of other pieces of content? That are sort of vaguely about the same thing right Sin And I really think we spend so much time on the front end of tea and and it's really in partnership with you know either the subject themselves or maybe the broadcast partner whatever or it's internally our own team where I dating idea Ding. Something's okay why are we doing this? What are we trying to say? What's the point? What's the story structure once the conflict? You know all the things. That storytellers Study for years but like reach sort of really in a go back to that here of thousand faces face like that Gioja MPAA. Yeah and I think that's a really important thing that sort of gets I see this a lot actually with people who you know somehow managed to get access with an athlete or something they just skip over that step and then I said it sort of becomes a reality show. They're sort of like riding along in the car or you know in the apartment and they're just sort of like a camera rolling but am not sometimes sure why So I'd say that's the key and then I think like the reality our we presenting that our pre are present. That yeah so okay. So it's like you know figuring out the point and sometimes it does of course start with them level of I think that to answer your questions. Like tactic we. There's in some ways there's use this expression of the time which is content is king and most important thing in our. It's never been a better time to be creative INC to some sure I can. I understand like the point. Everyone saying but I also think it's Kinda tough because yes there's this endless continent there. So how do you make your janitor? Who noticed partly how you get noticed as first of all not to keep on repeating the same thing but is having a point of view. But then it's and I think that point of view itself helps differentiates if I am an athlete prominent athlete or League or whatever and I'm being approached in a thousand different directions every day..

We have a great research team that has built almost like a catalog in a depending on the season. And where we are. But we're really looking at these sort of obscure, the whole, ideas wise sports matter in these communities in these nooks and crannies of the planet, and, you know, something like this, which if you're a sports fan, you're kind of you may have heard about, and it just sort of timed out for us. And then. Finding these things are all character-driven. You really have to find the people also that make these stories come alive, we've been lucky, but we now have filmmakers, we have producers store, you know, editors that cetera reaching out saying have you heard about this thing in this obscure part of the planet where this wild. So what would you want to do? I mean gimme gimme a spot. Something you haven't covered yet. That's something. You think would be fascinating or something having? I'm I'm interested in cricket. I worked on a cricket project many years ago, and USPS, but way, I wanna do it all over again, you have these rivalries between like India and Pakistan. I mean, this isn't just like we're talking geopolitical. I mean, it takes Red Sox Yankees Michigan Ohio state to a whole nuclear level like literally. Yeah. So I think there's like those types of things I think there's a bottomless well of like foot soccer stories around the planet. And I think some of those are really interesting. So I mean, do you are you concerned that stuff like that? Doesn't translate to an American audience because you're talking about cricket. You're talking about. I mean, we've always been like we love I'm a hardcore sports fan, but we've always been about like these stories that go beyond just sports fan. That's it's really about people and characters and like, why do these things matter so much? So I think the sport sometimes as the the backdrop, but it's really I mean motorcycle racing. You know, was was don't care about that. But it's like these are willing to put their lives on the line. That's the thing that gets you in Gotham Chopra, executive producer of AT and T religion sports.

What do you have for me on the on the future that show here on religion sports on shut up dribble? Shut up and do a limited series that was three parts time. So you're it. It's showtime. Anytime on say such a three you're not going to do more for dribbling or I mean, look we live in some interesting times. Probably. Yeah, I'd love to do more. You know, I think in the Bronx has a lot more to save. Plus, he's you know, what's cool about LeBron is he's he's a neighbor degeneration of. So you guys you guys like Jalen Brown? You know, you have dream on green. Who are? Now, they come into the league. Like, this is what they're supposed to be outspoken, and you have a Commissioner, Adam silver, who's very supportive of that. Right. Let's go to see a man. Yeah. Thanks for coming on here. Tell Tom when he does text you back that on behalf of slow Michigan men everywhere. Thank you and you moving like zephyr win. Now. I know it's pretty by the way moving like, zephyr wind.

"Correct. Merry Christmas from the Adam Corolla show Gotham Chopra in studio again, good to see again, my friend. Yeah. Thanks for having me produced certain documentarian, why sports manage the name of the podcast if you'd like to check that out. Also, the doc series shut up and dribble. I've been watching on Showtime with LeBron James executive producer and religious sports is well, so that's on the audience channel. And that is a PM on Wednesdays Alamein. I think was the first one or the latest one that was the first one of season three or season three. Now the. Somebody died when you were there, filming correct? Yeah. I mean pretty much every year. Someone dies in this crazy race. And yet the people still did. Fortunately, we followed two guys are guys didn't die. Fortunately, but somebody else did while we were there. And it's there there's no they don't make money. I mean, you don't know name the the greatest isle of man TT racer in history. Answers. Nobody guys Richardson guys who play ultimate frisbee probably get recognized more more often. And it's purely for the. It's his peers it gets right. That's kind of the point. It's certainly not for the money. It's really not for the fame. It's and the danger part of it when you talk to these racers is in part what really drives them that coming right to the edge. You know, the sort of poetic way of saying it is in confronting death is when they feel truly alive the there. There was historically many races like targa floria and things like that where they had them. And they went on for years and people would die because it was a race through the streets of Italy. You know, and people would dine spectators were dying stuff. And then they eventually all got sort of mopped up like, okay, no moss with the targa Florio and things like that. But I ll man is is about it. And and they're actually doing a lot of revival races. Now doing like petite Lamont smaller vantage Lamont stuff like that. But the man they just say we're doing we're doing our thing. Right. Yeah. I mean, it's the tiny little island and everybody into huge thing. Those roads are village roads. And these guys are going hundred seventy eight hundred and eighty up where the two hundred miles an hour down them. And it's insane. It is absolutely insane. And it endured for decades despite despite the danger, the insane part is watch them going down the roads as one thing watching pass, stumps and oak trees, and and just the craziness. It's just it's just the most in in a world where we do a lot of hyperbole about a lot of Astles on the internet or call themselves heroes, and they felt threatened and at risk. And what this is it. This is actual life and death shit in a world where all we do exaggerate everything all the time. This is no hyper race where people die regularly. There must be tenfold injuries. Plus get seriously injured like. Oh on the regular. I mean, one of our main characters by the end dealing. I mean, he has a pretty brutal crash broken ribs broken arm liver. I miss but it's kind of. Which you came for, you know. So he's yeah. That's crazy. They do it. It's it's in. They don't let them all go at once. They spread it out incrementally. But people do catch people and pass people. How how many do you know, how many people enter and what their multiple tiers? I don't know the exact numbers. I mean because we follow two guys in two different divisions essentially, and there are some guys like one of the racers James, oh, we fought he's a more established. She's got a sponsor visit team. So it's more traditional I guess as and then dominate is like this more amateurs trying to break into that level. And so like, his father and his mother part of his team, and, you know, his bike isn't as good and as all sorts of problems. So yeah, there's different tiers. I'm not sure exactly how many but like to break through this is their lives. I could see myself entering native petty Cam or the moped under thirty CC's, Sean. Yes. So your story in your dance story, and I don't know the full the full story. Where's everyone from when that everyone get here?.

"Well, look, I certainly don't want to you know, speak for him. But I think you know, if you look he's been you know, he's publicly supported him. I think there is a relationship there as well. It's complicated. Because you know, the dynamics of the league are very different. But I think, you know, in general like if you look at athletes as activists, and you know, you look at what the you know, LeBron doing this series. Lebron some of the other stuff he's done. I think that's proof that you know, he's on the side of those guys who are using their platform to to try to speak for something. We're speaking with Gotham Chopra about his documentary series shut up and dribble about athlete activism. And I wonder how much thought the guys you've talked to have given to the notion that sometimes as we've seen you could argue in the most recent midterm elections would Hollywood celebrities get involved sometime. James? There's a backlash sometimes people say people who go to the poll say, I don't I don't want somebody who doesn't live here. Telling me how to vote or how to think is there any history concern about about that affect possibly. I there probably is. And I don't know there probably should be. But look, I think, you know, if you look at the history of social movements, and, you know, the people who are at the forefront of them, you know, they're not popular often in their time. I mean, Martin Luther King, you know, we look back at him as one of the, you know, the greatest sort of progressive and still rights activists in the history of this country. But during his time there was considerable backlash, and I'm not, you know, putting LeBron James or any of those people in the same level, but of of Martin Luther King, but what I'm saying like movements themselves, you know, that for social evolution through history. Don't always on always well received during their time and. So look, I think progress is is sometimes messy, and I think we live in a time and that requires people to be engaged civically. And and I think it's great that a lot of athletes are pushing that agenda not just because of what they're saying. But because they encourage others to and and I think that's one of the cool things about this. Here's hopefully, look we we did we launched during the midterms. We we wanted people to be paying attention, and and sort of understanding like the only way things change is. If you get engaged speaking with Gotham children before we let you go Gotham interesting conversation, you know, and somebody's covered sports long time and social Justice issues in sports in issues, tangential, the sports and that's year. I sometimes wrestle with the question, though, as you said, you know, if it's if there's almost requirement to be engaged in a divisive time is it fair if we're going to laud. Athletes for being gauged it fair then to criticize them, and I'm not sure what the answer is. If they choose not to be. No, I mean, I I don't think so necessarily look everybody, you know, the, the dynamics and when you look at like the sort of backstory behind some of the athletes that are engaged, and then again, others that aren't and sort of understand this sort of layered complexities there. I I don't know that it's fair to ever, you know, sort of cast like just a general view like that, you know, and one of their certain cases in the history of the NBA particular, Michael Jordan is probably the most notable. And I think you know, he got criticized a lot for not being, you know, engaged necessarily. But when you look at, you know, his backstory, and sort of the risk that e based in his time, you know, you have empathy, and I turn they can sort of sympathize with what he went through. And then you look at look some of the more subtle ways in which a lot of these athletes, you know, and. And public people do live it, you know, live sort of a progressive lifestyle versus necessarily the, you know, the most outspoken, so I'm not want to necessarily be critical. But you know, just sort of the ones that do got some troopers the director of the new documentary series for Showtime shut up in dribble Goth. It's really been a pleasure having you here on the sporting life..

"Even since the eighties. What has been the most culturally relevant like the most, you know, culturally impactful for in America league in America. It's the NBA. So I I think like it is a league that resonates with audience in a way that others don't to obviously the advent of social media, and you know, athletes have a platform, you know, they have an ability to reach their audience and say what they want. It's sort of unfiltered. And then three I think, you know, the the risk factor is less. I mean, you just look at and we do this again in the series. You look at what guys like Craig Hodges face. Even Michael Jordan face the nineteen eighties. You know mood up to who was like, the be original calling capper, Nick, you know, what those guys faced when they did take stands or didn't, you know in the case of Michael. And some of you know, why they didn't. So I think that's an like that's sorta stems from the leadership that there is today. So you have guys like Adam silver who really are proud of. Athletes, you know, speaking their mind and encourage them as long as they know what they're talking about. However, and we're speaking with Chopra bet is new three part documentary series for Showtime shut up and dribble in the NBA. And Adam silver said this it's against the rules to kneel during the anthem. And that's of course, what ended muck mood up due RAV NBA career. Whereas in the NFL this point the guys are allowed to do what they want. That's true. That's absolutely true. But you know, and NBA player, they're sort of crafty in that way, they've been outspoken. They've protested and other ways they've, you know, manipulated their uniforms. They warned things on their shoes they've done all that sort of stuff. And you know, I I don't know that the NBA look the other way, but actually the NBA it's been quite as spoken and they've worked, you know, there's a real partnership between the NBA the league office and their players. And you know, I think that's probably there's also recognition that the players. It is very much a players league. And so you know, they are supportive of. Their players being outspoken in in ways that I don't think you see in other leagues, we're speaking with gossip choper, the director of new documentary series for Showtime, which you can see on the network or on demand, it shut up and dribble and the executive producers maverick Carter, LeBron James and Gotham Chopra to Mel hill is the narrator. You took the title as we said from the Laura Ingram comment, essentially telling athletes, you know, to get out of the political lane. How wide spread east that sentiment? She's the one who expressed it. But while you were putting this together how how often did you encounter people who share that sentiment? I think look it's we live in very polarized times. And so I mean, it's out there for sure I mean, I think you know, most people who are associated with the league. And that's obviously, you know, what the what the the series follows. It's not just the players, but it's the executive. It's the commentators. It's the fans, and so we talked a lot of those people. And, you know, look, they are they probably fall disproportionately on one side of that argument. But I definitely think you know, that is out there. But it's it's interesting with the league, I mean to LeBron the perfect example is he's the best player. You know, he in in the league, but he's outspoken off of it. I mean, he campaigned for Hillary Clinton and look as we know now, there's a significant part of this populate country who UNICEF stand stood in direct into stood in direct opposition to that. And yet like LeBron kinda has sort of Teflon players in the league have somewhat of a Teflon like, you know, you can be outspoken. You can even and and the crowd the audience can disagree with you. But they don't necessarily take it out on you in the same way. They may would say calling copper, Nick. That's good segue because I'm wondering house LeBron James feel about Colin capper, Nick what he decided to do a couple years ago and. He's dealing with now..

"Life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy shop over the last several years. You've seen a surge athlete gauge on social Justice issues, reminding a lot of people of the activism that we saw in the athlete world in the nineteen sixties athlete, activism and gauge -ment is the subject of news three part documentary directed by our guest Gotham Chopra for Showtime. It's called shut up and dribble. He got them Chipper joins us. Now, why why this documentary now Gotham, I think that you know, as I got to know LeBron over the last few years, and some of the people he works with maverick Carter in particular and really looking at the way in which he sees himself. Not only obviously as a, you know, a great player and somebody who's out there to win championships. But as a business person somebody who wants to you know, sort of be meaningful to. Community and then more and more. When I start talking to him realizing, you know, his understanding of the history of the game. And and how he got where he is. And and like, the responsibility he has to his community, you see that obviously with the, you know, school he's built in Akron and stuff like that. But this was something to really track that lineage and say, we how did we get to the point where the greatest player of his generation really could, you know, be as smoking be the most outspoken athlete of generation as well. We're speaking with Chopra about his three part documentary series. You can see it on Showtime, all three episodes of re run. It's shut up dribble. And let me ask you. Then. How did we get to a point where he assumed this mantle beyond what he's doing as an athlete per se? Well, yeah. If you go back, and that's what the series. Does. It starts in the nineteen fifties sixties, it looks at guys like Bill Russell, of course, who wasn't just the most, you know, arguably the most ominous player of any era in terms of winning nine championships in eleven years. But also at the same time of the sensually, civil rights activist. You know, look at Oscar Robertson who had to testify in front of congress and was really in some ways along with Spencer Haywood, you know, the pioneer behind free agency Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, you know, in the nineteen seventies. You know are boycotting the nineteen sixty eight Olympics when he was, you know, literally teenager, so there's a real history and mythology around, you know, these guys who in the NBA prior to it being the cultural force that it became probably in the eighties. And obviously what it is today that really were, you know, the forebears of this of this Indian the NBA, and you talk to some there early people with the movement, you know, with really like it was a. Place where African American players in particular where able to early on get pieces of the American dream. And so that was kind of the story of how it started. And then, you know, go through the explosion in the eighties bird magic, and Jordan and the bad boys and on and on and on. We're we are. Now, this particular moment in time. How is it different for the athletes outspoken than it was for the Russel's and the creams, and obviously, you know, you've got the time you Smith and John Carlos in the gym brands back in the nineteen sixties. I think a couple of things I mean, I think first of all the league itself has has literally become a cultural force, and, you know, one of the things that think that, you know, LeBron maverick, you know, kinda indoctrinated me into early on with. Hey, look, you know, there whether time where we called baseball America's pastime and the NFL has kind of marketed itself as America's game. But if you really look at, you know, over the last say twenty years or maybe..
