Episode 419 of the "Sports Illustrated Media Podcast" hosted by Jimmy Traina features three segments.
The show begins with a conversation with Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim about long-time colleague, Grant Wahl, who tragically passed away at 49 while covering the World Cup. Wertheim talks about Wahl's love of soccer, his rise at SI and the kind of person Grant was.
Following Wertheim, Greg Olsen from Fox Sports joins the podcast to talk about his first year as the network's lead NFL analyst, what it's like having Tom Brady waiting in the wings to take his job, what he said to Brady when he saw him earlier this season, what he'd like to improve about his broadcasts, his partnership with Kevin Burkhardt and much more.
Following Olsen, Sal Licata from WFAN radio and SNY TV in New York joins Jimmy for their weekly "Traina Thoughts" segment. This week, Jimmy and Sal weigh in a couple of fantastic Bill Belichick stories, Twitter's new checkmark system and the stress of holiday tipping
