KIRO Radio’s Gee Scott has officially launched a podcast!

On episode one of “Leaving a Legacy,” Gee sits down with former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver and current CBS Mornings host Nate Burleson.

“We are living testaments that you can rewrite the narrative, not just your career, but your life,” Burleson said, thinking about how much he’s done in the past decade. “There are so many people who are stuck in a position and they’re like, ‘Is this it? Is this all I’m going to be? Is this who I’m going to be identified as the rest of my life?’ You don’t have to. At the drop of a dime, you can decide.”

Burleson tells stories of interviewing Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, and meeting Al Pacino as examples of a few moments that rocked him a bit. Not to mention his ACL injury, surgery, and a tough realization during his rehab.

Learn how thinking about other passions during his NFL career led him back to the arts, his love for animation, and eventually a show with Nickelodeon. He says it’s time to tap back into the things you left on the shelf during childhood.

“If you love culinary arts, dive into that. If you love music, dive into that. If you love art, dive into that. If you love playing an instrument, dive into that. If you want to get into politics — look at Donté Stallworth, … his story is one of success and praise, a dark moment where he had an incident, and then he bounced back and is one of the most intelligent individuals, especially in the political spectrum, that I know.”

In “Leaving a Legacy,” Gee will take listeners on a journey to discover how some of our most influential public figures want to leave their legacy on this world, and how his own experience can be contributed to the shoulders of giants that came before him.

“My father always talked about legacy, and this podcast connects me to him now that he’s gone,” Gee said. “I’m so excited to learn from these powerful influencers to see what they’re passionate about and what they want their legacy to be. It’s a powerful question, and one that truly puts into perspective our ‘why’ during the short time we’re all here on Earth.”

Other guests on “Leaving a Legacy” include: author, activist, and journalist Amanda Knox; the “King of Twitter” Josiah Johnson; and Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price, who famously decided to pay all his employees a $70,000 minimum salary.

Gee is the co-host of KIRO Radio’s “Gee & Ursula Show,” which can be heard weekdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., or on demand at

“Leaving a Legacy” is available on all podcast platforms, and listeners can also watch each episode on the KIRO Radio YouTube channel. Text LEGACY to 888-973-5476 for more information.
