GUEST:  Zeke Mitchell

Amazon has premiered an original new docuseries The Ride, exclusively on Prime Video, which goes behind the scenes of one of the world’s fastest growing (and most dangerous) sports, professional bull riding. PBR – which has an even higher risk of catastrophic injuries than the NFL – has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching over half a billion households in 50 nations and territories. The Ride follows the daily lives of top bull-riders and coaches throughout the PBR Team, including one of the sports fastest-rising stars, Ezekiel (Zeke) Mitchell.  As one of the top-ranked bull-riders in the world, Zeke captured nationwide media attention as one of the only Black bull-riders in the top tier of this sport. (There’s been just one Black champion in the history of pro bull-riding who was crowned over 40 years ago). Zeke, who spent his childhood near Houston, loved watching PBR on TV from an early age. Today, Zeke is following his dream of becoming a bull-riding champion, avoiding the dangers of the sport (his close friend Mason Lowe died at a PBR event in 2019 after a bull stomped on him), and pursuing superstardom in a sport not known for its diversity.
