We finally complete the NFL Fantasy Stronghold circuit as Marcas Grant joins the podcast for episode 28. It seems that Marcas tried his hand at just about every facet of the industry, from play-by-play commentary to radio analyst, before settling into the gig he has today. As such, he brings a wealth of perspective for anyone with aspirations of getting into the sports media industry. Highlights of this episode include: - Marcas' winding backstory through broadcast media school, to being the voice of a minor league baseball team and finally to landing as an analyst on NFL Fantasy live. - Whether Marcas actively crafts the persona you see today or whether it comes natural. - What dream would TV's Marcas Grant be chasing if the NFL collapsed tomorrow? - Marcas' thoughts on being a black non-athlete analyst in the industry and how race/identity influence our space. - The importance of keeping content accessible to the casual fan as the fantasy industry continue to evolve.
