S2 / EP16: MIKE WILSON

Mike Wilson is an athlete with elite ability and you can say he "made it" in the world of action sports.  You can also say that Mike didn’t achieve his full potential. Mike has always marched to the beat of his own drummer and while some athletes choose to  be team players, Mike was more of a lone wolf.  People thought he was a loose cannon and maybe he is. On the podcast Mike tells his story and he has no filter.
