“The Last Dance,” which takes a look at the 1998 season of the Chicago Bulls, is one of the most watched documentaries from ESPN.

Topics discussed include:

  • The lengthy development of “The Last Dance”
  • What the original air date of the documentary was going to be
  • Jason not expecting the memes that would come out of his documentary
  • Labeling President Barack Obama as a “former Chicago resident”
