You can watch him every weekday for an hour on MLB Network, you can hear him daily from 3 – 6pm on his own radio channel, now you can also find Christopher ‘Mad Dog’ Russo in the podcast space.
This week, SiriusXM announced a slate of new original podcasts, and included in the exclusive list was Digging Up The Past with Christopher ‘Mad Dog’ Russo. The new project allows Russo to take a “historical deep-dive into the events that have shaped the sports landscape.” In a timely fashion, episode one features a history of Thanksgiving-day NFL games.
Russo teased the podcast last month on his Mad Dog Unleashed radio show. With football being a staple of the American holiday, his Thanksgiving centric podcast features audio from Bill Belichick, Earl Campbell, Bill Parcells, Gil Brandt and others.
Podcasting is a great space for a sports history buff like the 61-year old Christopher Russo. While his daily radio show encompasses aspects of history, it doesn’t allot for the deep dive he and some of his hardcore sports audience crave.
