Americans are fascinated by athletes. There is an entire media industry built around critiquing their work, assessing their value and holding them accountable to the adoring public that craves their success and pays their salaries. Athletes rarely allow the public to see beyond carefully crafted branding strategies. Some shun the public’s attention altogether, some crave that attention and can’t live without out it. Metta World Peace is one of those rare athletes who makes no pretense of hiding who he is and what he’s about. Metta has struck a chord with Americans. Whether by design or not he is more transparent and accessible than most athletes and exerts far less control over what he allows us to see. When he won a championship ring with the Los Angeles Lakers, one of the most recognizable and valuable sports franchises on Earth, he thanked his psychiatrist in his post-game comments. Not the kind of thing most athletes would do. But our guest has had to struggle for everything and knows what is real accomplishment. He was raised on public basketball courts in New York City where people have been killed over petty personal disputes. He has had to look over his shoulder his whole life. In one of the most competitive sports, he became a first-round pick in the NBA, an All-Star, won the NBA’s coveted Defensive Player of the Year Award, and of course, became a World Champion. While achieving the impossible he struggled to leave his past behind. He has fought his battle with mental health in front of the cameras and has become an important voice in understanding mental health and how mental health problems impact athletes and athletics. He has come so far from his rough and tumble roots that he won the J. Walter Kennedy Award given to the NBA player who shows outstanding service and dedication to the community. Of all the things he has achieved that is among the most impressive, because it shows the true colors of this playground warrior.
Renowned neurosurgeon and concussion expert Dr. J. Patrick Johnson talks about how medicine is changing and the markers that can tell whether someone is likely to have Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) - the brain condition associated with repeated blows to the head.

Every single one of us has some kind of sense of humor, but only a precious few can make all of us laugh. Cedric The Entertainer is one of those rare people with near universal appeal who has put together a hugely successful career as a beloved stand-up comedy legend, a Tony Award winning Broadway star, a popular game show host, a sitcom star, an iconic movie star and just for good measure he’s been awarded an honorary doctorate. For the last thirty years he’s been one of our most important and influential public voices. The comedy legend, who stars in and executive produces The Neighborhood and appears in the hit TV comedy The Last O.G., opens up about his life before comedy, including working as an undercover security guard at Sears, his philosophy with hecklers, the Kings of Comedy Tour, and more.
We all strive to do our best. That’s why we love champions. We love to win. Americans in particular love to learn how to win. Tennis Champion Coco Vandeweghe has done just that. She has learned how to become a champion. And she’s learned from some of the best. Her immediate family boasts Olympians, former NBA players, and even a Miss America. For her competing and winning is a way of life. Anyone who wants to win has something to gain from her passion, intellect, commitment, struggle, dedication and her ability to deal with enormous pressure. Not just a champion but an outspoken advocate for equality and fairness in sports and in everything she does. Hear what Dr. Phil and Coco have to say. https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/

Ever wish you could live a life where you could say exactly what is on your mind at all times? Very few people actually have that kind of freedom. It takes a certain kind of sacrifice in order to reap the rewards that come from being true to who you are. Such people must take the risk that being yourself will lead to being successful. There’s a certain kind of character a person must have to take such a risk- whatever happens is yours and yours alone- success or failure- its nobody else’s fault. We like that kind of character on Phil In The Blanks. True success ultimately comes down to self-ownership and the courage to take responsibility for oneself- all the good and all the not so good. Ron White has walked that walk, and because he’s walked the walk he can talk the talk- and when he talks people laugh and they laugh hard. He’s a Navy Vietnam vet, a blue-collar comedy icon, a producer, an actor, a whiskey drinking, cigar smoking, unfiltered, off the cuff stand up from a small town in Texas who’s seen it all, done it all and landed on his feet in front of microphone. One has to love Ron White for all the good and for how he helps others learn to walk in their own truth the best they can. https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/

When it comes to judging future success, most people get it wrong, one way or the other. There are simply too many variables. One of the hardest things to do on Earth is play in the National Football League. It is also one of the hardest places to predict individual success. Everyone in the league is superior in some way: speed, strength, agility, skill, instinct, passion. Separation between best and worst is often measured in split seconds or a couple of inches, or in a single moment of inspiration or hesitation. Think about what it takes to be the best ever in a world like the NFL, to somehow move beyond superior and live there. Emmitt Smith thought about it then went out and did it. But when he was coming out of high school a man considered to be an expert at judging young football talent said about him: “he is a lugger, not a runner. He’s not fast. He can’t get around the corner. When he falls flat on his face, remember where you heard it first.” The most important variable in becoming the best running back in the history of the NFL is being Emmitt Smith.
