Episode 26 brings us Matt Miller the lead NFL analyst for Bleacher Report. One of the most well-known but down to earth figures in the business, Miller brings a wealth of valuable information to aspiring writers. Just about every ground gets covered in this episode: from personal life changes altering your career, to rising up through a big company and even how to navigate the social media world. Perhaps most interesting, Miller dives into a behind the scenes look at Bleacher Report as their "cockroach" and the controversial NFL1000 series. Highlights from this episode include: - Miller's background as a player, coach and eventually his move to the scouting portion of the game. - How having a child at 17 changed his life forever and actually was the quiet catalyst for his career. - Moving from the hobby approach at New Era Scouting to catching on with Bleacher Report at the beginning. - What took place at B/R to change the brand of the site and how he stayed on through all the movements. - Miller's tone on social media and why he might not really fit into the person you see on Twitter.
