SI Media Podcast: Featuring ESPN commentator Bomani Jones

Friday July 24th, 2015

Welcome to the 12th 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 ESPN commentator Bomani Jones. In the podcast, Jones discusses why he believes 10-1 ET is the best slot in radio, how he prepares for Highly Questionable and his ESPN radio show, how race plays into sports talk, where the line exists on Twitter when debating with colleagues and the public, the impact of his parents (both of whom are college professors and activists in the 1960s), what his ESPN future holds and much more. Deitsch also gives a brief take on this week's Bill Simmons news.

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 you can view all of SI's podcasts here.
