About this Episode

On Episode 25, Sam and Jack are joined by ESPN Producer for "Get Up", Paul Hembedikes. We discuss how Hembo finds his statistics and analytics for his graphics and support of on-air personalities, including his trivia battles with professional athletes. We dive into his introduction to ESPN, his start at "Mike&Mike" and how those experiences have impacted his work today. We get Hembo's opinion on the current Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears quarterback situations, how his numbers and statistics are "weapons", and he shares some entertaining 1880's baseball player names that you wouldn't imagine are real.
