It was great to finally chat with Jemele Hill. We talked about SC6 and navigating becoming the poster children for both ESPN being too political and ESPN laying people off.

It was a pleasure to chat with Jeff Pearlman about his upcoming book: Football for a Buck: the crazy rise and crazier demise of the USFL.

Jim and I talked his podcast Origins of a Champion: Nick Saban & Alabama’s Crimson Tide.

8/14/2018

Ryan was back on the podcast to help me shake off the rust. He tried! We mostly chatted about our media habits but we veered into HIGH NOON moving to 4pm; some of the OTT services like ESPN+ & DAZN, Ryan sang the praises of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and I ranted incoherently about why there’s no standard Nielsen measurement across all audio & video on the Internet like...

Was great to catch up with Richard on a variety of sports media related topics and on moving to Canada and joining The Athletic. This was a “Never Can Say Goodbye” podcast where we kept talking (and taping) several times after saying goodbye.
