Throughout the ESPN chapter, Jim speaks with personalities, producers, and top executives who played critical roles in ESPN’s unprecedented march through television history. Premiering today, Episode 1: “ESPN & Social Media: A Troubled Marriage,” features dozens of new personal reflections and previously unheard analysis. “ESPN remains one of the most intriguing and important forces in the world of media, and it’s been a blast to dig into these iconic shows, while also examining how the crazy world of social media has affected the network,” says Miller. “Listeners will hear directly from those present at creation, and those now charged with leading ESPN into a suddenly uncertain future. They will also hear stories and insights they haven’t heard before, while at the same time getting a deeper understanding of the people who make ESPN what it is today.” The next four episodes of the chapter are set to roll out in January 2018.
