Season 2: Episode 8 – Andrew Fillipponi, 93.7 The Fan
This week’s guest is Andrew Fillipponi, sports talk show host in Pittsburgh on 93.7 The Fan and nationally on CBS Sports Radio. For four years in college, we were really good friends. Then, for reasons half-remembered and ultimately ridiculous, we stopped talking. This is the first time we’ve spoken since.

Season 2: Episode 7 – Mike Meltser, SiriusXM/ESPN
This week’s guest is Mike Meltser, famous for being jolly and verbose. Actually, that’s a joke. He’s neither of those things.

Here’s some of what we discussed, this time: … Continue reading Season 2: Episode 7 – Mike Meltser, SiriusXM/ESPN

A great listen
The two episodes I've listened to so far are both entertaining and informative. Really excited to hear more.
How They Made It
I'm enjoying the podcast so far. The host--I think he's a former comedian--keeps the interviews light but asks pointed questions. It's been enlightening to hear about how his guests have succeeded in their respective industries. I could see this being a really instructive listen for anyone interested in learning about/entering the media or entertainment sphere.
This is a great podcast on the world of sports media. Scott has numerous connections in the field from his time at Syracuse, leading to great flowing conversations with those in the profession all over the country. Highly recommend the Danny Perkins episode, learnt a ton about Kansas sports radio. Looking forward to the next few episodes, keep up the great work
