Hey all! It’s been a minute since I last contributed for BFTB, as I’ve mainly been working on my own sports and pop culture commentary website, UNPLUGG’D. In any event, I got in contact with Chargers RB Justin Jackson recently, and we set up an interview. As a current undergrad at Northwestern, Jackson’s alma mater, I couldn’t have been more excited to have him on as a guest!

After recording it yesterday, I thought I’d share it with you all. Here’s the description with timestamps:

“On the latest episode of ‘The G-L Review,’ NGL welcomes on Chargers RB and Northwestern’s all-time leading rusher Justin Jackson to talk about the best dining halls on campus (2:58), watching the Wildcats make their B1G Championship run the year after he graduated (8:14), his thoughts on the NCAA student-athlete debate (11:!6), whether or not he had a chip on his shoulder after getting drafted in the seventh round (21:13), his reputation on the team as the smart guy (26:16). and what to expect from the Bolts in 2019 (32:14).”
