Trending Thoughts is a podcast hosted by 2x Super Bowl Champ Torrey Smith that is designed to entertain, spur debate, and to provide new ideas for our community across a variety of topics including sports, news, politics, parenting, and a lot more. Torrey will bring his unique commentary to each episode as we discuss what’s trending, feature celebrity interviews, and host unique conversations from the casual to the controversial.
After a big week in football, Torrey is joined by Trending Thoughts’ producer, Adam Vazquez, to digest wildcard weekend in the NFL playoffs, the Ravens’ big win, Alabama’s title win, and the Eagles moving on from their only Super Bowl winning coach.
On this week’s episode of Trending Thoughts, Torrey is joined by The Wine MVP, former NFL defensive back Will Blackmon. Their conversation highlighted what it’s like to have to move on from the game and find a new career and passion in your 30s like the way Will has done with wine. He traded in his skills as a safety for the skills of a sommelier and established a monthly wine club. Will and Torrey then focus on what the final week in the NFL season is like from a player’s perspective when there is either everything to gain, or nothing to gain, in light of recent allegations of week 17 tanking.
Torrey is back with a new season of Trending Thoughts and is joined by NFL veteran safety James Ihedigbo to discuss a hot topic in the league, the release of first-round draft pick Dwayne Haskins, the former starting quarterback of the Washington Football Team.
