Podcast Provides Fantasy Owners with Data
- Updated: January 19, 2013
The show, which features a rundown of fantasy baseball players, statistics, news, analysis, tips and insight will return to its weekly schedule after having taken a hiatus during the baseball offseason.
With fantasy sports growing in popularity annually, there is an increasing need for more information on the topic, leaders of the podcast note. Fantasy sports accounts for $4 billion in annual economic impact across the sports industry.
The Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast began in January 2012 with Chris McBrien as the host. A permanent co-host was introduced in May with the addition of the “Fantasy Doctor,” an anonymous baseball injury expert.
A partnership with the Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks website was announced in the fall to further increase the scope of the weekly program.
Just recently, a partnership with Fantasy Judgment was announced, which adds a dispute resolution segment to the format.
“It has been a very busy offseason, both in baseball and here at the show,” stated McBrien, founder and co-host of the Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast. “We have established several strategic partnerships within the fantasy community and we are prepared to offer our listeners a quality show each and every week.”
In addition to McBrien and the Fantasy Doctor, the program features a rolling guest format. When the show returns Feb. 4, the first guest will be Eno Sarris, a writer for the Fangraphs website. Subsequent guests for 2013 include members of the fantasy community such as Tim Heaney (USA Today), Mike Gianella (Roto Think Tank) and baseball author Allen Schatz.
“It’s going to be an amazing 2013 season on the show,” stated McBrien. “We are committed to providing our listeners with the very best guests each and every week. We’ve got some big names lined up and we shouldn’t disappoint.”
The podcast will feature positional previews for the first eight shows, then revert to its regular segments for baseball’s regular season schedule.
The podcast is recorded Monday nights and available through channels including iTunes, Podcast Pickle, MirPod and Podcast Alley.
