In this episode of The Best Thing podcast, I talk to my dear friend and ESPN correspondent, Michele Steele. We discuss the best thing to ever happen to her that would never appear on a resume, bio or come up in conversation.

Michele and I met in graduate school at Columbia University and have been friends ever since. She has covered some of the biggest stories in sports for SportsCenter, NFL Live, Outside the Lines and ESPN’s digital platforms. In this powerful conversation, Michele shares what she learned from embracing a part of her identity that she once avoided.
