The Warrior Math Geek vs The NFL - The Real Story Behind the Concussion Battle, with Alan Schwarz

My guest today, Alan Schwarz, proves that warriors show up in all different ways. A self-described “math geek,” Schwarz saw the results of the NFL’s study on the effects of concussions on its players, and knew their conclusions were wrong. So, in his series of Pulitzer-Prize nominated articles for The New York Times, he set out to prove what their numbers really showed, using math as his weapon. And for more than three years, the NFL did everything they could to discredit him and his findings.

Schwarz tells the true story behind the public story, the real motivation behind his articles, how it affected him, his career, and his family, and the people who stood behind him during this three-and-a-half-year battle. Schwarz is an inspiration for all those who believe they aren’t strong enough to be a warrior. Proving that all it takes is a man who stands up for what he believes, no matter who is staring at him across the ring.
