Today’s guest is Chris Jones, writer for the upcoming Netflix show ‘Away’ and former sports and feature writer at Esquire, Grantland, and ESPN the Magazine, among others. Chris is here to talk about his life in writing, how his love for soccer has grown in the pandemic, his thoughts on his old online skirmishes, and so much more. One of my favorite conversations so far.

We referenced a number of pieces Jones wrote in our conversation, so check out “Away” (the inspiration for the Netflix series), “The Things That Carried Him,” and his profiles of Robert Caro and Penelope Cruz, for starters.
