“Pardon My Take” is a popular podcast that Barstool Sports does. For a while now, they have been trying to get J.J. Watt on the show. After they raised more than $50,000 for his charity, Watt accepted and talked about a variety of things. In Part I, Watt discusses his charity, his health, how he feels entering this season, what it was like not playing last year, his origin story and time at Wisconsin, and the media backlash that has come at times with his success. It’s a fun time as Watt maneuvers around some real tough questions, jabs, and jokes.
The iTunes link to the podcast is here. The interview starts at 23:20. There are some bad words here and there. Part Two of the interview will be released later this week.
