There have been days in the past month where Keith Law has done more than 20 interviews in one day.
So what’s one more?
Law, the ESPN columnist and author of the outstanding new book “Smart Baseball,” joins Brian to talk about writing and analytics in sports. Keith talks about how he learned to slow down his writing, how writing about analytics doesn’t mean you don’t have passion for your subject material, and how being open-minded can help you ask better questions and write better stories. He also describes how numbers should never drive a story, and he reveals what question interviewers ask him that is a giveaway that they haven’t read his book.
Brian also gets his first-ever board game recommendation.
