Welcome to the second edition of Jaytalking! This weekly podcast will dive into four sports passions of mine:
– The sports business world
– The growing world of spectator sports travel – giving you tips on following the Packers, Brewers, Bucks, Badgers, Marquette and more
– Sports history – call it #ThrowbackThursday
– Olympic sports – the athletes from Wisconsin and beyond, and what the Games mean to a city, both positive and challenging.
This week's episodes (yes, episodes!):
In our sports business spotlight, Bucks Chief Marketing Officer Dustin Godsey shows us what it takes to run a playoff business operation and how it's very different than the regular season.
In our sports travel segment, longtime WTMJ Brewers voice Jim Powell catches up with us on his journeys, his time as the voice of the Atlanta Braves, his love of Bob Uecker and his travel tips for Brewers fans going to Atlanta.
With the Kentucky Derby nine days away, Throwback Thursday brings WTMJ's Gene Mueller and a fun discussion on the greatest live animal in sports history – from Derby horses to sports mascots.
McFarland's Matt Hamilton (not Middleton, as I incorrectly said on the podcast – tisk, tisk!) already has an Olympic gold medal, but he wants to add a World Cup Grand Final championship to his resume with USA Curling's Team Shuster. He joins Jay from his day job – which isn't curling!
Finally, Jay looks at this weekend's NFL Draft and gives you a guide on how to judge the Packers' crop of draftees – and how NOT to judge them.
