June 3 — Podcast

Today I discuss Ali, jumping off from my piece in The Wall Street Journal on Ali's draft refusal (which Mr. Silverman kindly reads below in its entirety, beginning at the 12:05 minute-mark) and continuing deeper into Ali's relationship with America and The Nation of Islam.

Thank you to Craig Silverman for having me on his show (26:27, 48:30) and for his kind praise of The Boxing Kings:  

What an impact this book is going to have on the literary world. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read, and it’s all because of the amazing writing...this just brought boxing alive to me...[Paul’s] passion for boxing is evident, but his ability to write beautifully is uncommon…this book has the pace of a good heavyweight fight.
