Podcast episode 258ish: Paul Shirley

Paul Shirley may not have been a force in the NBA, but at least he played in it. That makes him for the time he was there, anyway, one of the top 450 players in the world. He was also known as the funniest guy in the association. Sure, that's damning with faint praise, as we discuss in this episode, but he really is a witty – and smart – former jock. Go figure! Now he's moved on to more rewarding, if not higher paying, work as a writer. We also talk about him being beat up by Arcade Fire's frontman Win Butler and he explains his controversial essay on Haiti that led to his termination from ESPN.

Here's a little taste of the show. Then when you finish watching, you can listen to the whole thing below or download it at iTunes.
