    Interview: Jeff Pearlman on USFL Book, The Athletic, & Donald Trump

    Slackie Brown's Casey Pazzalia chats with New York Times best-selling author Jeff Pearlman about his new book, "Football For A Buck," and a litany of other subjects. Among them, you'll hear the two chop up "Summer Catch", the direction of The Athletic and Sports Illustrated, Donald Trump, dealing with fame and so much more.

    In addition to his USFL venture, Jeff has published books on the 1986 New York Mets, the Mid-90's Dallas Cowboys, the "Showtime" Los Angeles Lakers, and several others.

    Perhaps his biggest claim to fame was as the author of the infamous John Rocker article in Sports Illustrated. He spent nearly a decade at SI, in addition to time at ESPN, Bleacher Report, and The Tennessean.

    Jeff currently writes a weekly column for The Athletic, hosts the "Two Writers Slinging Yang" podcast, and blogs frequently at JeffPearlman.com.
