Best sports digital media podcast ★★★★★

The Sports Geek podcast is an excellent resource for both experienced and rookie digital media specialists who operate within a sporting environment. The weekly podcast is informative, suitably technical and very topical. It uses real world cases to demonstrate the practical application of good and bad digital media execution as well as offering a glimpse at how professional sports stars and franchises I implement strategy.
