Tom Brady, ESPN, Media, and Barack Obama

600x600bb

Bill Simmons and guest, Chuck Klosterman, cover a ton of ground in the latest Bill Simmons Podcast. Particularly insightful conversation as they discuss how cord cutting affects ESPN’s bottom line, Bills Simmons recent interview of President Obama, and Chuck’s interview with Tom Brady. For example, ESPN loses out on $70/year in revenue for every cable subscriber that cuts the cord (cancels their cable subscription)!? Cord cutting is getting worse (I cut the cord 2 years ago) so I’d imagine they’re losing a ton of money.

As an side, I really just got into The Bill Simmons Podcast….it’s a good one.  Check it out.
