Welcome to the eighth episode of the SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch. In this podcast, which will be published weekly, Deitsch will interview members of the sports media about their work, and interesting people about the sports media.

This week the guest is Tom Verducci, a Sports Illustrated senior writer, MLB analyst for Fox Sports, and studio and game analyst for MLB Network. In the podcast Verducci discusses his preparation for different mediums (broadcast and print), the best questions to ask for interviews, how to get subjects to speak with you, why Jackie Robinson is the player from the past he most wishes he could profile, why he’s not on Twitter, the challenges of covering a member of your family, how growing up the son of a high school football shaped his journalism and more.

Be sure to check back each week in Deitsch's media column for the latest episode. A reminder: you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and click here to view all of SI's podcasts.
