The Sports Geek Podcast is a wonderful listen for those who work in sports or are interested in the behind-the-scenes of how a sporting business operates. With a focus on digital and fan engagement, Sean's guests each bring insight into strategies applied at their club, agency or league. I feel every episode has at least one solid takeaway and often career tips are provided for those who are looking to break into the industry. Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
