Fall in love with sports again as series host John Gonzalez uncovers sports stories you’ve never heard before
WHAT: iHeartRadio and Sports Illustrated Media announce an original podcast series focused on iconic names in the sports industry, “Sports Illustrated Weekly.” Hosted by John Gonzalez, a senior writer for Sports Illustrated and previous podcast host and writer at The Ringer, the weekly series takes sports fanatics through untold moments, iconic interviews and the best stories in sports thus far.
Gonzalez will bring to life the articles in the latest Sports Illustrated issue including stories that take listeners behind the scenes of College Football’s madcap coaching carousel and into the underbelly of the soccer hooligan turned crime kingpin. This new series is everything readers love about the iconic sports magazine, now in podcast form.
In episode one, fans can tune in to hear from some of the biggest names across sports. The episode will kick off with Howard Beck, who chats with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Steve Kerr, and Bob Myers about how the Golden State Warriors are somehow in “win now” and “rebuild” modes at the same time. Then, Tom Brady sits down for a 1-on-1 interview with Jon Wertheim about how he’s changed over 20 seasons, while still playing his best football, and what the future holds. And finally, in a segment titled “Where Were They Then?,” former NFL Offensive Lineman Joe Thomas recalls the first time he was featured in Sports Illustrated.
WHEN: First episode available now with new episodes dropping every Wednesday.
WHERE: “Sports Illustrated Weekly” is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network and is available on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard.
