Chicago Bill Siegel: The Greatest

This week we pay tribute to filmmaker Bill Siegel who passed away last week. Bill Siegel is known as the director of what I believe to be the best boxing documentary ever made, The Trials of Muhammad Ali. We play an interview that the podcast did with Bill Siegel after the death of Ali in 2016.

Also we have Choice Words about the late great Bill Siegel, his film The Trials of Muhammad Ali, and why his work was so important. We also have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down Awards for the UNC athletic community and a Major League Baseball executive talking about a potential blackballing of Bruce Maxwell, and more!
