Episode 356 of the "Sports Illustrated Media Podcast" hosted by Jimmy Traina features an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, who is an executive producer on ESPN's latest "30-for-30" documentary, "Once Upon A Time In Queens."
Jimmy's Cousin Sal is also a producer on the doc and joins the podcast to discuss the best nostalgic moments from the doc, why they wanted to tell the story of the 1986 New York Mets and which former players stood out for their performances in the show.
Kimmel also talks about his time on FOX's NFL pregame show, how much Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long hated him and almost getting voted off the "NFL on FOX."
Other topics discussed include why the '80s were the best decade, what Kimmel's mentality is doing a late-night show during the age of streaming, the one guest he'd like to have on his show, his reaction to going viral, which question he hates being asked.
Following Kimmel is the weekly Traina Thoughts segment. This week, Jimmy and Sal Licata from WFAN and SNY read the latest "SI Media Podcast" reviews on Apple, reveal about Week 1 NFL television observations, give credit to Tom Brady for being right about a big issue and talk about the MTV Video Music Awards.
