SiriusXM announced a new podcast for Adam Schein which will debut on Wednesday, September 4th.  The weekday host on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio will release weekly podcasts throughout the NFL season.

The Adam Schein Podcast will offer football as its theme, featuring unique conversations with celebrities and athletes during each episode.  Considering the NFL as its focal point, the podcast features an unlikely guest for episode 1, as former New York Mets third baseman, David Wright joins Schein to talk football.  

During the conversation, Wright offered parallels to Eli Manning as a former superstar athlete in New York and Andrew Luck, having both dealt with injuries that led to prematurely ending careers.

“For me it was my mind was always telling me, ‘You’ve got it.  You can do it.  You can overcome this.’  And my body was just saying, ‘No, you can’t,’ said Wright, regarding having to retire because of injury.  “And it was kind of an endless cycle of my mind winning over my body until it got to the point when my body just said, ‘Hey, no more.  This is it.’  My body was just telling me that you can’t do this anymore.”

Having played more than a decade in New York, making seven All Star games and helping the Mets to a World Series in 2015, Wright also spoke about Eli Manning’s career with the Giants nearing a close.

“As an outsider you’re like, ‘Man that’s so unfair that he’s getting this criticism.’  But then knowing those fans, like we talked about, their passion they have in New York, that’s what New York is and that’s what has made Eli such a legend.  It’s the same thing that’s built him up sometimes are kind of those same influences that try to chop you down,” Wright said on Schein’s new podcast.

The Adam Schein Podcast is available on SiriusXM on Demand and Pandora. 

Beginning his career as an intern with WFAN in the mid-90s and later working as a part-time host, Schein left the iconic New York sports station for Sirius in 2004, joining the platform even before Howard Stern made the jump to satellite radio.  Schein agreed to a contract extension to remain with SiriusXM earlier this year.

Bomani Jones: I’m Better At Talking About Political, Social Issues Than Most In Sports Media

“I personally am better at talking about those things than most people who work in this industry. Like I feel like I can say that fairly and then it not really be an arrogant thing.”

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James found himself in a few headlines last week when he questioned reporters for not asking him about the recent Washington Post story and photo surrounding Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and ESPN commentator Bomani Jones took the opportunity to discuss the revelation.

Jones was pictured as a 14 year old among a crowd during an early stage of integration of public schools in Arkansas during the civil rights movement.

LeBron pointed out that he would field questions when there’s a controversy surrounding a Black person and spoke about the situation with former Cavaliers teammate Kyrie Irving, but he found it curious that no one had asked his opinion on the Jerry Jones story. LeBron had long considered himself a Cowboys fan, but in recent years he’s stopped supporting the team over Jones’ mandate that Dallas players stand for the National Anthem.

On his ESPN podcast The Right Time, host Bomani Jones talked about LeBron and circled it around to how he and other ESPN personalities caught a ton of flack for speaking about political or societal issues that often don’t fall within the confines of sports.

Jones said that being able to talk about political and societal issues comes easier to him than it does to most members of the sports media.

“I personally am better at talking about those things than most people who work in this industry,” Jones said. “Like I feel like I can say that fairly and then it not really be an arrogant thing.”

Jones said it comes down to the fact that there’s a bias at play. Are people going to take offense to what you’re saying because they disagree, or are they going to like what you’re going to say because they agree?

“They’re reinforcing the fact that you’re reinforcing what it is that you want to hear,” Jones said. “But the truth is that most people are not qualified to talk about these things before the world, because talking about these things before the world is very, very difficult.”

John Jastremski Fires Back After Craig Carton Criticism

“I’m not listening to a crook. So you know what? Go take a f—ing hike. How about that.”

Earlier this week, WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton said John Jastremski — a former WFAN host now hosting a podcast for The Ringer — “shunned” his radio career advice.

During his New York New York podcast Thursday, Jastremski strongly condemned Carton’s remarks.

“I don’t like going here with this stuff, ’cause I know this plays right into what this guy likes to do,” Jastremski said. “This is his M.O. This is what he’s done his entire career. It’s what he’s done for his entire career and he’s had success doing it. He lives for this stuff. But it really set me off. It set me off because I gotta see it on Barrett Sports Media while I’m on vacation. Like I wanna be bothered with this shit, number one. Number two, it’s just tone-deaf, insulting, and flat-out rude every which way.

“Number one: going after people who work at McDonald’s? Who the hell are you to do that? Number two: You’re insulting a multi-billion dollar company where I work. I have a great job, a great platform, a great producer. I have two great jobs, I might add. And you’re insulting both of them. By the way, you’re on that network. Five days a week. And you’re insulting that network. How stupid are you? Taking shots at people of the network you’re on, I’m on. And I could tell you, it pays well. I do ok.

“As for career advice? Guess what? I listen to legends. Bill Simmons, you ever hear of him? Worth a lot more than you. Mike Francesa? My boy Adam Schein? I listen to those guys. I’m not listening to a crook. So you know what? Go take a f—ing hike. How about that.”

Calling Carton a crook harkens back to the WFAN afternoon host’s stint in federal prison for participating in a ponzi scheme that scammed investors out of $5.6 million that he in turn used to pay off gambling debts. Carton was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison before serving just over a year in prison before being released in 2020.
