Great way to stay informed on the sports media!
I have been a fan of Richard Deitsch’s for almost two years now. I often read his SI columns and will continue to now that he’s at The Athletic. Based on his previous show, this new podcast from Richard will be a must listen to stay informed on sports media news and a great place to for interviews with some of the best names in the sports media industry. Richard asks thoughtful and interesting questions of his guests and there’s usually quite a bit of humor in the sports media round table episodes. I’d recommend people subscribe!
Great to see RD’s podcast returning. You’ll be entertained with great guests and fantastic analysis
Glad it's back... but
Richard I'm glad the podcast isn't dead. I usually enjoy it. But please, please, please stop screaming over your guests all the time. Thanks!
