Ed Latimore is a heavyweight boxer, writer, and physics student living in Pittsburgh, PA. He's the author of several books, the most recent of which is Not Caring What Other People Think Is a Superpower

Ed joins me for a varied discussion covering everything from gaining a reputation through Twitter (where I first found him), joining a boxing gym at 22 and now being 13 and 1 in tournaments, rising from the projects in Pittsburgh's infamous Hill District and lessons learned living next to crackheads and crack dealers, and the importance of becoming a better man.
