Description

Ivan Maisel is an award-winning reporter and writer, who has covered college football for nearly four decades, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, and now on3.com, where he’s a Senior Writer AND Vice President of Editorial.

8 years ago, Ivan's 21-year-old son Max died by suicide. And what I haven't yet shared on this podcast is the fact that I can really relate - I lost my mom to suicide almost two years ago.

Ivan writes about Max's life, death, the stigma around suicide and men’s mental health, and his discovery that grief is love in his book, I Keep Trying to Catch His Eye: A memoir of loss, grief and love. It’s a beautiful book that made me cry and smile.

I am honored that he took the time to talk with me about all of it - his love for Max, his grief that he continues to honor, and the healing he’s been through and continues to go through. And really, this conversation was healing for me too.
