This week, I’m talking to Kate Fagan. Kate is the author of The Reappearing Act and the No. 1 New York Times bestselling book What Made Maddy Run. She spent seven years as a columnist and feature writer for ESPN and was a regular panelist on ESPN’s Around the Horn and host of Outside the Lines. She’s currently working on her next book and hosts the Free Cookies podcast with Kathryn Budig.
Kate and I discuss her father’s ALS diagnosis, the feeling of performing grief, being present for someone else’s pain, her choice to leave ESPN, ignoring outside validation, and being/not being Type A.
