The Controversial and Misunderstood Journey of NFL Legend Ricky Williams

Today’s guest is NFL legend Ricky Williams!  As a household name in the world of professional football and a trailblazer in the realm of cannabis entrepreneurship, Ricky is a multi-faceted pioneer.

Rachel and Ricky delve into his impressive career that spanned over a decade in the National Football League.  From winning the Heisman Trophy in 1998 to  breaking records throughout his tenure, his contributions to the game left an indelible mark on the sport, but it was his controversial retirement that left many fans with questions.  We get the answers to why he left football behind and how he became a leading figure in the cannabis industry where he uses his platform to advocate for its medicinal benefits and reshape the conversation around the drug itself.   Ricky is so much more than what has been written about him and he shared it all with us!
