Nate Adams, producer of Road Hard and Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, joins Adam for this episode of Take a Knee. Adam starts the show talking about Nate growing up in Montana and being on the wrestling team. Nate talks about the tragedy of losing two of his brothers at a young age, and how the fallout from those events led him into becoming a troubled youth. Then he gets into his college days, and how afraid people were of him in theater class, which eventually led him to take a more inward look at himself and turn his life around. After that, Nate found out he was much better at writing than he was at acting, which eventually led to his decision to move out to LA to pursue a career in the entertainment business. After explaining some of his initial jobs and projects, Nate gets into what it takes to build a project from scratch. Before they wrap, Nate and Adam talk about their Paul Newman documentary.
