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. We talked about the book, a bit about his process and some sports media topics. I’ll just tease it this way: anytime I can have a guest on who wrote a book that Lenny Dykstra hated and Ron Darling loved* you should probably listen to the podcast “just because.”

The Quaz: because I’m an idiot, we didn’t even talk about the Quaz but it’s one of my favorite things on the internet.
Two Writers Slinging Yang: Jeff’s podcast! because I’m an idiot I didn’t even know Jeff had a podcast but there’s some upside to being an idiot: many good episodes to binge on!
