Join Nick Swisher each week as he steps outside of the box and into the studio to talk with athletes, celebrities, psychologists, and other experts about staying positive and winning this game called life.

Nick knows that dads have to wear a lot of different hats, and his guest for this episode is a pro at putting on whatever hat his daughters need. Nick invites Marc D'Amelio, father of Charli and Dixie D'Amelio, onto the show to talk about how protecting your children takes many different forms, embracing your child's lack of dependence, and why it's not always your job as dad to "fix things. Nick and Marc also give us a taste of what it would be like in the karaoke club with both of them. Seriously, "stop what you're doing."
The MLB Winter Meetings just ended and Nick has a lot to say about the recent transactions, especially a certain signing in New York. Nick welcomes MLB Insider and MLB Executive reporter, Mark Feinsand, onto the show to talk about the big MLB signings this past week, the one team that really dropped the ball on negotiations, and the real reason we're starting to see more "opt-out" clauses in player contracts.
Nick invites lead actor and martial artist, Frank Grillo, onto the show to have a real talk about recovering from loss, the true power of delayed gratification, and the importance of checking in on yourself and others. Nick also gives us his take on the MLB Winter Meetings and the latest player to change uniforms. Check out Frank's latest film, "Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend" out now!
Nick invites actress, singer, and co-host of The LadyGang podcast, Becca Tobin, onto the show to talk about stumbling through parenthood, the big differences between mom guilt and dad guilt, and why it's not always good to rely on the internet for parenting advice.
Nick invites former NFL Quarterback, Ryan Leaf, onto the show to talk about returning to the world of sports, building your very own "board of directors," and finding your guardian angel in the most unlikely of places.
Nick invites 2-Time World Series Champ, and 3-Time "Manager of the Year," Joe Maddon, onto the show to talk about his humble beginnings as a leader, creating a safe space for players to fail, and why an experience with a terrible coach may be just as important as an experience with a great one.
We've all been there before. We hit a low point in our career and wonder, "What's next? How do I go up from here?" Nick hit that moment during the post-season, and luckily that was when he was introduced to someone who taught him all about "developing a process." Nick welcomes psychologist and mentor, Dr. Jeff Foote, onto the show to talk about finding self-compassion, admitting when we don't know what to do, and developing small processes to create the better outcomes we want. Nick and Dr. Foote also dig deep and discuss the one quality that all incredible coaches and mentors have.
Fresh off a family-filled weekend, Nick has an incredibly heartfelt father-son chat with former MLB All-star, and recent Jersey Retiree of Ohio University, Steve Swisher. The two talk about generational lessons, the power of helping others, and what Steve has learned throughout his life as a player, a manager, and a mentor to many. Nick also brings on therapist and life coach for the Detroit Pistons, Dr. Corey Yeager, to get an introspective look into the psychology of sports, the importance of establishing trust in any relationship, and what we're all capable of doing in just 23 seconds. We close the show with a weekly recap of some rad people, including a story of two vets who reconnected after 75 years apart!
