Jays Journal Podcast Exclusive: Jackie Redmond.
Familiar heroes rose to the occasion, leaving Toronto Blue Jays fans hollering and experiencing a profound sense of relief as the team returned home to face the juggernaut that is the Houston Astros. With an inspirational 7-4 victory behind them, Aaron Sanchez has arrived to continue this desperate stab at momentum when it matters most, and perhaps offering the faithful a chance to dream in technicolor rather than grayscaled media melancholy.
Tonight's show features an exclusive interview with Sportsnet host and television personality Jackie Redmond (@Jackie_Remond), who joins host Ari Shapiro and shares her candid thoughts on the game of baseball, the Jays, and the industry as a whole. Tune in to hear:
Her groundbreaking experience on The Score and the turning point with her journalistic ambitions (5:00); on being an underdog, and prevailing with serious hard work and focus (6:30); on her love of sports, early childhood, and honing her skills (9:50); why modern day baseball keeps her inspired (11:45); blurring the lines between fan appreciation and professional duty (13:20); the official Redmond take on the 2017 team (14:50); which professional athlete has impressed her with his charm and grace (17:05); on Roberto Osuna, mental health, and staying positive in the face of adversity (21:15); a deeper perspective on the human condition and how sports and life are intertwined (24:10); on the transition from the limelight to the retired reality of athletes (26:15); upcoming projects and pursuits (29:12); and the most epic and persuasive argument to trade Josh Donaldson (31:05).
