Welcome to episode No. 38 of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch. In this podcast, which is published weekly, Deitsch interviews members of the sports media about their work and interesting people about the sports media. This week's podcast guest is @PFTCommenter, the gritty NFL writer and Chief Political Correspondent for SB Nation. He is also the host of The Steam Room podcast on SiriusXM.

In this episode—where PFT does not break character—PFT talks about how he got his start in the world of hot sports takes, which media outlets he reads daily, his thoughts on concussions in the NFL, how he sees the nexus of sports and politics, whether or not he thinks Peyton Manning used HGH, whether Twitter has become a liberal echo chamber, why Danny Woodhead is underrated, whether Donald Trump will get the GOP nomination, who will win the Super Bowl and much more.
