Speaker 1 (00:01):
Hi. I'm Davis Miller, host of the new podcast The
Tao of Muhammad Ali. Ali has saved my life time
and time again. I first met Ali almost by chance
on Easter weekend nineteen eighty eight. I knocked on the
door to his RV, which was parked in front of
his mom's house in Louisville, Kentucky. To my great surprise,

(00:25):
he didn't just answer the door, he invited me in.
It was the beginning of a decade long friendship, and
over the years his influence profoundly changed my perspective on family, spirituality,
and on the purpose of life itself. I'll tell you
that story, and we'll hear the stories of other people

(00:48):
touched by the champ will speak to people such as
Reverend Al Sharpton.

Speaker 2 (00:53):
Where As a normal person you three times live, win
champion in the world, you go retire, you live, made
money whoever you want. Where others looked for doing a
commercial on endorsement, he looked for a cause to endorse
that he wasn't going to get anything out.

Speaker 1 (01:09):
We'll speak to heavyweight champion James Buster Douglas and his
trainer and pal John Russell.

Speaker 3 (01:15):
Look what Buster did.

Speaker 2 (01:16):
The Tyson he says, what do you think I would
have done to him?

Speaker 4 (01:19):
He was really happy for James.

Speaker 3 (01:21):
I moved him, you know, my skills and talent just
shocked him, you know, moved him and pressed him. And
I was just a moment that I always remember the
rest of my life.

Speaker 1 (01:32):
Well, even hear from Mohammed's daughter Rashida Aweih.

Speaker 4 (01:36):
Well, my dad was. He was Peter pan like, he
never really grew up. He was very mature when it
came down to social issues. He was very in tune.
He felt a responsibility to be able to share his
connection to millions of people who were in need.

Speaker 1 (01:54):
These stories are full of insight about the most famous
and admired boxer of all time. But you know what
the truth is, Ali was more than a fighter, and
I believe that his life after boxing, his second act,
was even more influential than his first. So yes, you'll
hear about Ali the athlete, but also you'll hear about

(02:16):
Ali the father, the teacher, the humanitarian, and Ali my
mentor and great life transforming friend. In each of these stories,
we share lessons, lessons that have meant a great deal
to me and that I hope will be meaningful to
