Episode 87 of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast features free agent NFL lineman Geoff Schwartz, the co-author of “Eat My Schwartz: Our Story of NFL Football, Food, Family, and Faith,” along with his brother Mitchell, who plays offensive line for the Kansas City Chiefs. In this episode, Schwartz discusses how a pro athlete approaches making the transition to working in the sports media; how big city media is different than smaller city media; the impact of talking about religion and politics on Twitter; why he and his brother decided to write a book; being one of the greatest Jewish offensive lineman ever (yes, it is a small list), navigating being honest with viewers as a former player, and much more. A reminder: You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Google Play and Stitcher.
