Bob Costas served as a perfect opening act for this week’s guest. Dr. Jeremy Littau.
Jeremy, an associate professor at Lehigh University, joins Brian this week to talk about his experience earlier this year when he legitimately went viral on Twitter. How did it happen, what was it like, and when did Jeremy’s notifications finally become manageable again. That yields into a discussion about public scholarships and why academia, as a whole, does not typically value it.
They also swap stories about life in newsrooms in the early 2000s, and how woefully unprepared newspapers were for the digital age.
But most importantly, they break down the travesty that was the SB Nation Breakfast Cereal Bracket.
