The Jason McIntyre Show: Matthew Berry on Fantasy Football, Life and the Media


Matthew Berry is ESPN’s fantasy sports guru, and he recently wrote a book about the Fantasy Life. It hit the New York Times Bestseller list. Almost as (more?) importantly, Berry appeared on the Howard Stern show recently.

Among the topics we discussed:

* Every aspect of the Stern Show appearance. As a longtime fan of the Stern show, I considered this appearance a bucket list item. He agreed.
* What it’s like telling strangers ‘I write about fantasy sports for a living’
* Berry chronicles where he was 10 years ago – depressed and in LA
* We talked about Fantasy and the rise of it, and how likely it is that Fox Sports 1 would have a Fantasy Football show next year
* We disagree on Arian Foster
