The Sportswriter's Life is a brand new podcast series from the brand new (or not even new!) sports publishing start-up Magnificent Irrelevance.
This 12-part series, which begins in September 2020, includes interviews with sportswriters from all over the world, including staff writers and regular contributors for the likes of The New York Times, Bleacher Report, The Sunday Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Series Editor of the Best American Sports Writing books, and many more.
The series is for anyone interested in great sportswriting - whether you're already in the business, or you're trying to break into or navigate the sportswriting industry, or you're someone who likes to read great sportswriting and would like to hear a little more from the people who produce it.
Great sportswriting is about so much more than just sports or just writing.
Great sportswriting offers insights into who we are as people, into our motivations and desires and why we do the things we do.
Sport is so often a manifestation of the best parts of life, and everywhere we look there are stories just waiting to be told.
It is the writers who will tell those stories, and this podcast series and the wider Magnificent Irrelevance venture will try to play some small part in keeping that flame burning.
You can follow all the developments as founder Shane Breslin tries to make Magnificent Irrelevance a reality by signing up for weekly pre-launch updates at www.magnificentirrelevance.com.
