It’s time for episode two of Apocalypse Sports Radio, with our special guest Tim Layden. Tim and I talk for an hour exclusively about what it’s like to be from the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. Just kidding! We hit on our shared roots briefly before talking about what it’s like for a writer to work on TV, Tim’s time at Sports Illustrated from the golden age of the mid-90s to the sad ending after the Maven purchase, and there’s a good deal of writing talk—both about the act and the industry. Then we touch briefly on horse racing and the Olympics before we wrap it up with some trivia. Listen here:
Two of Tim’s pieces are referenced, and you can find them here:
