For the inaugural goopfellas episode, functional medicine practitioner Will Cole and chef Seamus Mullen sit down with former All-Pro NFL player Keith Mitchell. Mitchell tells them about when his life began: He was lying on his back, in front of 80,000 people in the stands, millions watching on TV. What he didn’t know then? He’d suffered a paralyzing spinal injury. His football career was over. He had a relationship with himself that he’d neglected. He had three houses and cars all over, but he was confined to one interior room; he wasn’t happy. Mitchell did not change all at once. He started experimenting—conscious breathing, yoga, other mindfulness habits—and he built some momentum. “It sounds so simple, but it’s still complex to a lot of us,” he says. “The big picture of transformation can look scary.” Today, all three men talk about the little wins along the way, about why we lead with anger, about moving from force to finesse, about balancing trauma with healing, and about integrating masculinity, vulnerability, and well-being.
