Ordinary Celebrity: Ryan Metz
It’s been almost a year since my last episode of Ordinary Celebrity! Whew. Been a busy one. But I’m glad to break the silence with this drop.
Ryan Metz is a senior at Virginia Tech. He’s majoring in mechanical engineering, and he’s a pitcher for the Hokies baseball team. Listen in as he shares the insights and challenges he faces as a Christian student-athlete. Ryan also finds time for his own podcast – The Christian Athlete Paradox.
For those of you new to Ordinary Celebrity, here’s a quick glimpse into its focus:
“Celebrity” simply means “someone/something worthy of celebrating.” When I realized that, this podcast was birthed. Whether someone has achieved public celebrity or they are your next-door neighbor, classmate, parent, or co-worker, everyone has something worth celebrating. Everyone has a story. And even the glitziest celebrity is wonderfully ordinary. Their celebrity often obscures more notable beauty about their personhood. And that’s what this podcast is designed to reveal and celebrate!
And as I mention in the first episode, my “celebrity crush” is Tom Cruise. Maybe, just maybe this podcast will get big enough (or “seven degrees of separation” miracle will happen) to allow me to sit down with Tom over a cup of coffee and a microphone.
