Michael Spencer is a powerhouse of an agent who represents some of the top athletes in ski and snowboard. I’m talking about Shaun White, Gus Kenworthy, Simon Dumont, Torin Yater-Wallace and more. On the podcast, we talk about deep connections to his athletes, starting brands with them, all things agent and of course, Michael’s backstory. It’s a peek into the life and times of a super-agent.
