The duo does a fantastic job diving into some incredibly unique interviews and pulls back the curtain on athletes in a way very few have done before.
Jay and Tim really know the industry well and bring out the best in their guests. Great show for anyone in the industry or looking to learn more!
Absolutely love this podcast! The hosts are amazing and provide great insight into the life of a particular guest speaker and how that can bring us so much advice and assistance today. Especially since I’m a huge sports fan and interested in entrepreneurship, this podcast covers it all and is perfect at anytime wherever you’re playing basketball or doing some work.
Sports. Business. Insights. This is such a good podcast! I learn a lot in each episode and find it really entertaining.
Tim & Jay allows athletes from all walks of life share their life experiences that we can all learn from & appreciate. Incredible to hear many unique stories and their paths to entrepreneurship.
Traditional media bombards us with information and, with respect to the latest consumer products/investing trends, tends to offer high-arching success stories— not actionable insights, which The Game Plan offers. Tim and Jay keep things short and sweet and offer valuable detail on the happenings in early-stage consumer and entertainment-oriented investing. Solid guest appearances also provide good color on what works for successful investors and what pitfalls to avoid. Can never wait to download the new episode!
I love to hear how folks forge their own paths to entrepreneurship. Some awesome tales in here. Love it
I love this kind of deep interview format that brings you into “the rest of the story” for the people you only knew on the court or field. Great lineup and it’s amazing to hear the first hand stories how some of these folks were able to translate success in sport into the business world.
This is an awesome podcast at the intersection of sports and entrepreneurship. You don’t even need to be a sports fan to appreciate the application of sport mentality (competitiveness, creativity, quick decision making). You won’t be disappointed!
Love hearing Tim and Jay engage with athletes and give insight into their life beyond sports! This show is a must for anyone looking to learn about the intersection of sports and business.
This is a must add to your podcast roster. Jay and Tim give great insights in a fresh and fun format. Big fan.
This podcast is amazing. So cool to learn the business side of sports from not only super knowledgeable hosts, but also guests that are crazy well versed in specific sections of both sports and business!
Sports is interwoven across all of American society - and high growth business applications are no exception. Whether you’re interested in building better communities, stronger teams or simply running up the score; this podcast will inspire you and help make your dreams happen.
Tim and Jay are great hosts and have in depth knowledge of sports and a great way to articulate things . I would def recommend 10/10
Great mix of guests and very interesting content. They ask good questions and keep it entertaining.
Great interviewers diving into a great subject. I love the intersection of sports and business, and Jay and Tim know the right questions to ask in the space.
Not only are Tim and Jay incredibly knowledgeable on the sports tech and TMT space, but their guests are top notch and innovations they discuss represent the future of the space. Take the time and educate yourself!
As a sports fan, I love hearing how athletes are tackling the business world after sports.
Jay and Tim have done such a great job of making sure that the things they said are insightful and the presentations are amazing!
Really unique to hear from athletes and their endeavors off the field. Great questions and conversation.
In a swarm of what is otherwise commoditized or “ok thanks but that was obvious” sources of content, Jay has found ways to get differentiated perspectives directly from former athletes and funnel those insights in a digestible way to people like you and me. The takeaways are not only insightful but also applicable to those looking at pursuing a career path that is slightly left of center from their own - as is the case with athletes pursuing investing in and around the sports ecosystem. At the very least, if you could not care less about the topics themselves, the entertainment value is bar none. Highly recommended.
Jay and Tim have great conversations with former athletes and they do a wonderful using previous industry expertise to drive the conversation. Excited to keep listening!
Really enjoyed the well constructed conversation with the CEO, Alex Magleby. What a unique insight.
An inspiring and easy to tune into show with some of the most committed individuals who are putting in the work on the business front following a hugely successful career in sports.
Jay & Tim really have created a podcast that is real and full of life. The entrepreneurs they’ve brought on are very inspiring and what they share is an encyclopedia of knowledge. I enjoy listening to it while, I run! Great job guys... keep it up!!
It is fascinating to hear how athletes diversify their porfolio in business ventures either during their career or after. This provides a view into how a majority of athletes invest their earnings knowing that most will need multiple streams of income post-playing career. It really exposes how the 21st century athlete has developed a sense of entrepreneurship trying to correct the mistakes of the past generation of athletes whose finances quickly went awry post playing career.
This podcast brings sports and business together to show us what athletes are up to beyond the field. These guys ask the right questions to bring out the perspective that the regular sports media often ignores or just doesn’t have interest in. This is a must listen to podcast!
TGP is not just fascinating guests or great interview skills. Jay and Tim also manage to draw out the essence of work ethic rooted in athletics and the building blocks of entrepreneurial endeavors. I have loved the insights I’ve unlocked from the episodes thus far and look forward to more.
Jay and Tim ask incredibly interesting and insightful questions, and uncover really fascinating and often untold stories. They bring out the best in their guests, which makes for a very energizing and fun show. After listening you feel like you can take the athlete mentality and take on whatever dream or startup idea you have!
The Game Plan offers a unique perspective into the lives of the hosted athletes as they embark on life beyond the game. The podcast illuminates the perfect balance between such disparate yet intersecting industries: sports and entrepreneurshp. The approach to each episode is elegantly and strategically handled, and the episodes provide listeners a deep-dive into the athlete's' life, approach, and mindset through seamless discourse. Onwards!
I’ve always been curious as to how athletes created wealth once there sports careers are completed. This podcast gives tremendous insight into that!
The Game Plan is a podcast that takes you into the minds of athletes as they prepare for life beyond the playing field. The podcast reminds fans that professional athletes are everyday people who have hopes, dreams and aspirations beyond sports. Kudos to Jay Kapoor and Tim Katt for humanizing pro players and exploring the intersection of sports and entrepreneurship.
The Game Plan easily became part of my podcast rotation! I love hearing stories from sports greats (Jake the Snake FTW!) from their post professional life. It doesn’t hurt to have Jay and team on the other side of the table making fun, insightful convos either!
It’s always been interesting to read about what pro athletes do post-career as they’re still quite young at the time; even better to hear directly via this podcast. Solid list of guests they’ve brought on and the conversation is very “real”. Keep at it!
As a lifelong pro sports fan, I’ve always been interested in the sports star’s life on and off the playing field. Now as an entrepreneur I enjoy hearing the stories of fellow founders. The podcast mixes both passions into one. I definitely recommend!
I normally don't listen to long-form podcasts, but have really liked The Game Plan. The podcast is interesting on both a business and sports level. The episodes move quickly, and cover a wide range of business and sports types. I especially enjoyed the Shawn Green episode.
Awesome to find a show that does a good job of talking about both sports *and* business. Great for fans of either.
It doesn’t matter if you know much about sports or understand venture capital - it’s so intriguing hearing how incredibly talented and competitive athletes transferred their skill sets to something entirely different. If you’re intrigued by just how humans learn, operate, and succeed, it’s worth the listen.
This podcast is awesome. To be honest: I’m not a sports fan - I’m interested in tech and the human side of investing. Listening to Jay and Tim gab with these current/former athletes is super fun and makes for an easy listen. It’s like getting all the smart, business stuff from Rogan, minus the crass sexism 😆.
I can't think of a better way of reconnecting with athletes that we've all grown up watching. For me that was Gaizka Mendieta and Patrick Ianni. And for athletes, Jay and Tim provide a new avenue by which they can connect with their fans. The journey doesn't need to stop at retirement - so much potential with this!
Jay and Tim are masterful storytellers and hosts of The Game Plan. Each week, they manage to surprise and delight us by unearthing never-before-told stories from each of their guests. A must listen if you’re looking for fresh takes and perspectives in the world of sports, business, investing and entrepreneurship.
The Game Plan tells these stories of these successful athletes that haven’t been shared yet. It’s refreshing to go beyond the celebrity of the individuals and dive deeper into what they are doing beyond their game time career. A great listen!
These guys have a great eye into the world of sports but behind the scenes. Strip away the money, celebrity factor, and “fluff”, that’s what they talk about .
Definitely an enjoyable podcast!! Get to learn so much on every episode and Jay & Tim have some great guests!
Jay and time always have great questions making it easy to learn something on every episode. Plus it's funny. Excited to keep listening
The quality of each subsequent episode continues to surprise me. There are many athletes I haven’t heard of but I am in awe of their stories and their commitment to having a successful life post sports. Great story telling by Jay and Tim. I also love the bit at the end where the hosts go through the business itself.
The insight and angle of this podcast is truly unique. Really cool to hear what these athletes are also involved in, a truly inspiring and motivating listen!
This podcast is near the top of my quarantine survival list- informative and interesting. Can’t recommend enough!
Truly a one of a kind podcast — great insights on entrepreneuership and a unique look at tech through a sports lens. Shawn Green episode is a must listen!
Athletes are so much more than their accomplishments on the field. I’m so happy that Jay and Tim put together this series to showcase everything they are doing off the field. Thoughtful questions and entertaining responses make this is a great way to learn about business best practices from some very smart, multifaceted individuals. Bravo and well done!
Love exploring how Jay and Tim bring together sports and tech worlds on every episode
Athletes can make great entrepreneurs and have very educational stories for this pod. Jay and Tim have the ideal background to lead informative venture discussions. Highly recommend.
Absolute must listen for anyone interested in professional athletes, both in the sports context and especially outside it. Learned a lot about impact investing from the Derrick Morgan episode.
If you are interested in learning about professionally athletes using their platform to start businesses and inspire people, you will want to check out this podcast. Jay and Tim do a fantastic job interviewing incredible athletes that have been able to become successful entrepreneurs. Highly recommend!
This is a great platform for athletes to share their stories of transition into the business sectors and how they are using their platforms for good in the world. It is very well done and Tim and Jay were so thoughtful, professional and insightful with their questions. Top Notch Podcast!!
Just listened to the episode with Patrick Ianni. Intelligent questions, thoughtful analysis and I appreciated the business breakdown at the end. A good listen.
The first two episodes are insightful case studies in how athletes identify and work towards solving problems in their professional lives after sport.
Jay and Tim are amazing. What a great podcast to listen to and learn from. Loved the second episode with Ellis Wyms! Can’t wait to for the next one 😬
As a sports and technology fan, I’m fascinated by when the two cross over each other. However, outside of brief allusions on a Bill Simmons podcast or ESPN’s 30 for 30 “Broke”, there isn’t a lot of content out there that allows the casual fan to track how athletes are going from the money-draining disasters of yesterday to the entrepreneurial and benefactor behaviors of tomorrow. Jay and Tim’s work offers a great opportunity to peek behind the curtain and see what the real grind out, in-the-arena action is for athletes making that next career step. It’s great to hear about their past game experiences and how those are driving their current ventures!
So glad I subscribed!! Pleasently surprised that this is not a sports podcast but actually a business/entrepreneurship podcast -- the guests just happen to all be pro athletes. Awesome concept. I esp. like the audio quality. The hosts' voices are smooth and soothing and the guests sound pretty crisp too! Great work by Jay & Tim - look forward to many more!
I love how much of the discussion isn’t about sports! This is a business and entrepreneurship show with great athletes. It’s amazing the level of depth and discussion Tim & Jay are able to get from their guests. Excited for more episodes!
An amazing and unique way to tell stories! I am looking forward to hearing more of these in future episodes!!
Career sports, at least to me, has always seemed like one of the most non-relatable yet over-romanticized professions out there. I just can’t wrap my mind around playing a game you love for money—that much money. Jay and Tim create a great environment for these former professionals tell their stories, bringing the realness to the subject that I haven’t seen before. Well-produced and thoroughly engaging. Highly recommend for the sports / business crossover lover.
I really enjoyed the first few episodes of this podcast. Jay and Tim really get their guests to open up about their playing career and life beyond the game.
It’s great to hear about the different avenues players are taking, but I find extremely interesting to hear what the partners think AFTER they’ve recorded the episode. Helps give insight into what an investor might be thinking or looking for in your idea so you can strategize around that!
Tim and Jay do a great job in diving deep into the athletes story, while asking the right questions. Like a more serious version of “The Corp.” The uniqueness of the podcast comes from the uniqueness of the guests. As athletes, these founders are coming to the table with a different set of skills, resources and challenges than traditional founders. A unique perspective form a lot of what’s out there, with plenty to learn from for fans and entrepreneurs alike.
Every episode is its own fascinating peek into the lives of athletes you know and love...there is so much to learn from both their professional athletic careers and the careers they’ve chosen to pursue off of the field/court/pitch. Jay and Tim are very entertaining as well and ask wonderfully insightful questions. Highly recommend!
Jay and Tim have come up with some incredibly unique content in this increasingly crowded world of podcasting. Every current, former and future athlete, entrepreneur, investor, business person, really anyone should be listening to this. If I were a former athlete, I would definitely want to be on their podcast. Probably one of the most thought provoking, humble and powerful lines from Episode 2: “You don’t know who you are when you don’t have a helmet on” or something to that effect Great job guys, looking fwd to future episodes
Jay and Tim do an excellent job diving to the heart of what former professional athletes are looking to do with their businesses once they retire professionally. With their VC backgrounds, Jay and Tim know what questions to ask their guests in order to stimulate productive and enlightening conversations. As an entrepreneur, I found an incredible amount of resonance with the challenges, thought processes, and approaches used by the show guests in the first two episodes I’ve listened to. This show is now one of the few places I go to in order to reflect on challenges, and brainstorm solution frameworks to consider.
I really like this series! It’s great to hear the perspective of the athletes, and the insights Jay and Tim do in the “partner meetings” at the end of each episode is very insightful.
The Game Plan brings a cool twist to listeners as they hear from former sports players and what they are doing since hanging up their cleats. Also, I enjoyed the behind the curtain section near the end of the interview to gain insight from Jay and Tim regarding early investor viewpoint. Interesting and I highly recommend.
I am a fan of Jay and what they are doing on the podcast bringing two great topics together in one show: sports and business. They approach the topic(s) in a novel way getting stories straight from the mouths of athletes and reacting with their investor POV. Excited to see what comes next.
Such a great idea and format. Jay and Tim seem to have a great style — excited to see what additional guests and stories they uncover!
This is a very great and engaging first episode. I’ve always been interested in hearing what athletes do once they hang up the cleats. Jay and Tim’s voice and cadence are top notch!
I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode of the Game Plan podcast. The two hosts are engaging and I especially enjoyed the ending segment where they analyzed the guest’s company from a VC-investor’s perspective. I’m glad that there is now a podcast that satisfies those people whose interest in sports and investing overlap and I’m excited to here more episodes from Jay & Tim!
I really enjoyed the first episode. The end segment where the hosts discussed the interview was especially interesting. Will certainly be adding this to my weekly podcast rotation, great job Tim and Jay!
