Mouthpeace with Michael Bennett & Pele Bennett

Lemonada

Michael Bennett is a unicorn. The NFL defensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys, is both a Super Bowl Champion and self-described feminist. Pele Bennett is no slacker either: she’s a food advocate and a skilled Polynesian dancer. Together, the Bennetts have taken on everything from racial justice work to authoring a children’s book to parenting three daughters. (Did we mention they’re high-school sweethearts?) In Mouthpeace, the Bennetts invite listeners and guests into their professional and private lives to take on topics provocative and personal: from sitting out the national anthem to keeping their sex life fresh. Like Michael and Pele, Mouthpeace manages to be many things at once: hilarious, inquisitive, and unfiltered. NSFW: explicit content. First episode drops January 31, 2020.
