Episode 85: Ben Strauss, The Washington Post


Great to finally have Ben on the podcast! Ben has reported extensively about ESPN & politics in the aftermath of Dan Le Batard’s comments. The bulk of the podcast is on those topics but we talked about a few other sports media topics (DAZN’s “ChangeUp”, Sunday Ticket and The Athletic) in the last 1/3rd of the podcast.

Ben’s recent deep dive on ESPN chief Jimmy Pitaro and ESPN’s policy around politics. (htps://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2019/07/26/jimmy-pitaro-espn-president-politics/?utm_term=.41a350bb2e2c )
