It’s a weird flip of the podcast world this week. Normally, Brian co-hosts The Flip Side, a podcast about sports, media and other stuff with Dr. Galen Clavio. But this week, Galen joins Brian to talk about sports media and writing.
Galen, the director of the National Sports Journalism Center and a professor at Indiana University’s media school, discusses his career path from minor-league hockey play-by-play guy to academia. He talks about how writing helped him in his play-by-play and broadcasting career, and how the job is often about figuring out how words go together.
Galen and Brian also talk about the challenges of teaching sports media in an ever-changing marketplace, and their research and writing processes. Galen talks about why the literature review is so important and why he always does the introduction last. He also remembers what it was like covering Bobby Knight’s firing from Indiana as a member of the student media.
There is also news about The Flip Side. And talk about Vlade Divac’s hypothetical burner Twitter accounts.
