Podcast Episode #102 – Justin Tinsley

This week we interview Justin Tinsley, a senior sports and culture reporter for ESPN’s “The Undefeated.” He has written commentaries and feature stories about people as varied as Marvin Gaye, Malcolm X, James Baldwin, Serena Williams, Cardi B, and Kendrick Lamar. Tinsley is also a regular presence on ESPN’s daily sports talk show, “Around the Horn.” And, he is the host of the “30 for 30” podcast, “The King of Crenshaw,” which explores the legacy of the late rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle. Justin Tinsley’s first biography, It Was All a Dream: Biggie and the World That Made Him, was published by Abrams Press in May 2022. He was interviewed by fellow biographer and BIO member Kevin McGruder.
