About this Episode

On Episode 49, Sam and Jack are joined by one of our personal favorite writer's, Seth Wickersham. Seth joins the podcast to talk about his journey from Alaska to the University of Missouri and ESPN, how he got his first "break" and where he took chances when others may not have. Seth goes into detail on various stories he has written, from the feature story written on the late Y.A. Tittle to detailed accounts of what really went behind closed doors for the Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks and New Englad Patriots and even a story about Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones attempting to block NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell from receiving an extension. We ask Seth about his book being released in October 2021 titled "It's Better To Be Feared: The New England Patriot Dynasty" which gives an in-depth look at what it took to create one of the greatest sport dynasties we may ever see. Seth describes how he allows his sources to feel comfortable through a series of networking and understanding what he's looking for and closes the podcast with some valuable advice for any graduating college student.
