Episode 67: John Ourand & Richard Deitsch

September 7, 2018

I’d never had Richard & John on together and it was as much fun as I’d hoped it would be! We went deep on the single data point (the overnight rating for Falcons/Eagles) of NFL ratings available when we taped. We also discussed the ratings landscape and how ratings can/should be viewed through the season. We also talked about the rights landscape for the next round of NFL rights and…

Episode 66: Jeff Pearlman, best-selling author

September 4, 2018

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.

Episode 63: Ryan Glasspiegel, The Big Lead

August 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…
