We've been producing podcasts at Sports Geek since 2013 as a way to stay connected with people we work with and learn new trends in sports business.

As Sean Callanan, founder of Sports Geek and host of the Sports Geek podcast, has mentioned on the podcast before: “The podcast is for my clients of Sports Geek – past, current & future”.  It has also been a tremendous channel to grow the Sports Geek client roster.

What we didn't see coming was the tremendous support from the sports business industry from around the world.  We've had emails, DMs, tweets come in from listeners from all over who continue to listen and support all Sports Geek content.

Our Patreon campaign gives YOU a chance to support our efforts in producing content for the sports business world through podcasts, guides and email newsletters.
