Audibles Podcast: Bachelorette, Game of Thrones creep into sports coverage

Wednesday June 8th, 2016

On this week’s episode of the Audibles Podcast, host Andrew Perloff and producer Mitch Goldich are joined by NFL editor Melissa Jacobs. They discuss how and why The Bachelorette and Game of Thrones seem to have crept into mainstream sports media coverage. Ravens running back Justin Forsett, whose cousin is a contestant on this season of The Bachelorette, calls in as a guest. He shares how well he thinks Joe Flacco would do on a season of The Bachelor and then the group discusses which NFL players would make the best and worst bachelors.
