Mike Powell has been killing the podcast game over the past 12 or so months. In the latest episode he talks to John Spriggs. who discusses, among other things, the events of the last year. It's a hard hitting one for sure, Mike calls it his 'most intense' so far, and it's pretty much a must listen.
Words and interview by Mike Powell:
John Spriggs is known for many things: Being a professional skier for over a decade, taking his basketball height and making it work in the terrain park and backcountry and, most recently, a high-profile arrest for assault and other charges. Fresh out rehab, John now has 6 months of sobriety under his belt and he’s trying to figure out who he really is and learning strategies of how to deal with that person. Between the alcohol and the anger issues, it’s not going to be an easy road. And….he hasn’t given up on his pro ski career, the question is, have sponsors and fans given up on him?
