8: #Sports4Good with Alicia Jessop

In this episode, Peter Ott discusses how sports can be a force for good with Alicia Jessop. Ms. Jessop is an Assistant Professor at the University of Miami who has written for numerous media outlets about sports business issues. Throughout her career, she has witnessed countless examples of athletes who have made a difference in the lives of people, either through direct interaction or indirectly through a charitable organization. In a world where we often hear about the bad things that athletes do, Ms. Jessop wants to make sure that people are aware of the positive impacts that athletes can have on their communities as well.

Additionally, this podcast includes a short request for donations to the GoFundMe page for Lib Montoya. Lib designed the Sports Law Biz Podcast logo and is my good friend. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and had successful surgery to remove it. However, he had just started a new job and his insurance coverage had not kicked in yet and he has to pay a large hospital bill to cover the surgery. If you are able, I encourage you to donate to him to help him pay for his surgery. You can find the GoFundMe page here.
