In 1990, while covering a story about homelessness for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Ted Jackson encountered a half-naked drug addict sleeping under a bridge.
After snapping a photo, Jackson woke the man. Pointing to the daily newspaper by his feet, the homeless stranger looked the photojournalist in the eye and said, “You ought to do a story about me.” When Ted asked why, he was stunned by the answer.
“Because, I’ve played in three Super Bowls.”
Whoa, what a story.
Today's Academy episode is about mastery of craft and embracing those "moments" in life where we know it's time to create something special. We discuss an incredible career, the creative process, how Ted Jackson came across the story of a lifetime —and so much more. We also discuss friendship, redemption and telling an emotional story unlike any other.
