                                      ABOUT THIS ENTRY

                                      The mission of the “Club Shay Shay” podcast with Shannon Sharpe is simple: give today’s luminaries a place to talk openly about triumphs and failures on their rise to prominence, offering inspiration to listeners.

                                      How does this represent “Excellence in Engagement”?

                                      The podcast was selected as one of Spotify’s best sports podcasts and reached #2 on the Apple Podcasts Sports Chart.

                                      CLUB SHAY SHAY also picked up a Cynopsis Award in 2021 for Best Sports Web Series.

                                      The show has amassed 575K subscribers on YouTube, and 67 million lifetime views on YouTube.

                                      Objective: The mission of the “Club Shay Shay” podcast with Shannon Sharpe is simple: give today’s luminaries a place to talk openly about triumphs and failures on their rise to prominence, offering inspiration to listeners.

                                      Each week, the Pro Football Hall of Famer and co-host of Undisputed on FS1, sits down with athletes, celebrities and influencers to break down, analyze and discuss the latest headlines in sports, pop culture and everything in-between. With a quick wit, the former tight end for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens moves easily between the worlds of sports and entertainment with his finger on the pulse of the cultural zeitgeist with a sharp fashion sense. A gifted interviewer, the podcast’s longform format allows Sharpe the opportunity to have genuine, meaningful and revealing conversations.

                                      Strategy & Execution: In the standout episode of 2021, which was named one of Apple Podcasts’ Best Episodes of the year, Shannon welcomes in the first African-American driver to win Rookie of the Year in a NASCAR Series, and 2018 (and 2022) Daytona 500 runner up, Bubba Wallace.

                                      Bubba talks in-depth with Shannon about how joining Michael Jordan’s 23XI Racing team has put him in a place to succeed this season, at the Daytona 500 and beyond. He and Shannon discuss the ins and outs of NASCAR, covering how drivers practice, how to prepare for different tracks, and the setbacks and challenges Bubba has faced as the sport’s only African-American driver.

                                      Bubba and Shannon also talk about the intersection of sports, politics, entertainment and humanity, touching on Bubba’s role banning the Confederate flag from racing, putting #BlackLivesMatter on his car, pushing to make NASCAR more inclusive, and much more.

                                      Bubba provides a fascinating insight into the world of NASCAR. His passion and knowledge for racing shine through in this important conversation.
