Episode 103 of the Sports Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch features two guests. First up is J.A. Adande, the Director of Sports Journalism and the Medill School at Northwestern University and a longtime ESPN staffer. He is followed by The Athletic NASCAR writer Jeff Gluck.

In this podcast, Adande discusses how he has processed the last two weeks in America; the nexus of sports and social justice and sports and race and why you must cover these issues even knowing that some consumers of your product are not going to be happy if you do; what his students at Northwestern are saying about sports journalism; his optimism for sports journalism given this moment in America; the growing power of college athletes; the discussion among NBA players regarding the league’s return-to-play plan; and much more.

Gluck, who has been traveling on the NASCAR beat since 2007, discusses NASCAR’s decision to prohibit the display of the Confederate flag from all NASCAR events and properties; how he anticipates this will be covered heading forward; the role of the networks that air NASCAR in the decision; whether this will have an impact on viewership or attendance and more.
