Must Listen Sports Podcast

★★★★★ in Apple Podcasts by Willy Carter from Australia on March 26, 2017

This podcast provides great insight into the digital aspect of global sport. The interviews cover a range of topics all relevant to the off-field aspect of sport. Not a week passes without listening to an episode and a must subscribe for anyone working in the business side of sport. Highly recommend if you want to keep your finger on the pulse!!!
