Shikari and Barry Bonds on Family
Barry Bonds is an American pro baseball player who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants, notably breaking numerous major-league records. In 2004 he became only the third major leaguer to hit more than 700 home runs in his career.
However, one of his greatest highlights is his family, including his daughter Shikari who is learning to navigate life as a hard-working adult after having been given the world as a child. Shikari is learning to make a name for herself now - all on her own.
In this episode, Shikari and Barry Bonds join Hailey and Ronnie Lott to discuss how life changed for Ronnie and Barry after having kids, what it was like for Hailey and Shikari to grow up with successful parents, and what life is like as Hailey and Shikari step into their own.
