PODCAST: Philadelphia Eagles roundtable special: Takes from media & fans alike

Throughout the entire 2017 NFL season, one team has dominated the league all season long, and that is the Philadelphia Eagles.

Being a senior at Bloomsburg University, I’ve clearly noticed that the bulk of the student population proudly calls themselves Eagles fans. Over the past four years, I have spent most of my time associating with Eagles fans. Being a mass comm major, I haveI met people that have gone on to work in Philadelphia Sports media, while others look to break into the industry. Some aren’t even going into sports media, but share the same passion for the Eagles.

Since the Eagles’ 2017 season has been nothing short of incredible, and because so many of my college colleagues follow the Eagles, I thought I could compile several opinions into one podcast. I interviewed seven people that either cover the Eagles, look to cover the Eagles in the future, or follow the team as a fan. Each individual was asked the same questions. The result is a near 50-minute podcast that brings together a handful of thoughts from multiple perspectives.

Interviewees:

  1. Jack Fritz – BU class of 2016 – Producer at 94.1 WIP – Founder of Philly Fan Life
  2. Tim Kelly – Senior at Bloomsburg University – Managing Phillies Editor, Eagles & 76’ers Columnist at Sports Talk Philly 
  3. Matt Loch – Senior at Bloomsburg University – President of BU’s Chapter of NBS AERho
  4. Enrico Connors – Senior at Bloomsburg University studying Business & Marketing 
  5. Jimmie Brown – Senior at Bloomsburg University, on exec-board for BU’s NBS chapter 
  6. Dean Turner – Senior at Bloomsburg University – Sports Editor at BUnow 
  7. Evin Hartsock – Senior at Bloomsburg University – Managing Editor at The Voice
