In episode #39, Dr. Reese talks with his colleague, Dr. John Dewitt, about his time playing pro football for 12 years. In this conversation, Dr. Dewitt explains the pressure that falls on pro athletes to perform at high levels. Similar to the "Showbiz is a Monster" episode, they take a deep dive into the dynamic of players having the ambition to be the best and what it does to their lives in this cut-throat business. Topics include steroids, weight demands, depression, concussions, brain damage, and more. Brace yourself, we're peeking behind the curtain of America's game.
