Each week, Stephen Strom gets to talk to some of sports media’s most notable names on The Sports Talkers Podcast. Strom askes about their individual journeys, lessons learned, and in this week’s edition, what being in the right place at the right time can mean for radio infamy.

Strom welcomes in Jorge Sedano from ESPN to talk about his relationship with Hank Goldberg and another Miami-based story, his infamous interview with Dennis Rodman when Sedano was working mornings at 790 The Ticket in Miami.

Strom brought up the bizarre radio interview from 2010 (you can listen below) in which it sounded like “Dennis was having some fun with another woman during the interview”.

“He was being pleasured by a woman while we are on the air,” interjected Sedano.

What was going on in Sedano’s mind during those seven minutes?

“Well, I just asked him, listen to it. I could hear the woman in the background,” Sedano explained. “He kind of put her on the phone a little bit, but then I heard things that sounded like he was getting pleasured and I just asked him: Dennis, are you getting it on right now? And he was like, ‘Oh yeah, brother.’

Sedano said that in that moment, he had to go with it, but delicately.

“I didn’t know what else to do other than to not say what was actually happening but give people the idea of what was happening and then ask him the questions that need to be asked in that moment.”

But how? How does Dennis Rodman get onto the air while in such a compromising position. According to Sedano, it was Rodman’s idea.

“We get a call, my producer Andy King says to me, ‘Hey, so Dennis Rodman’s agent is on the phone and says Dennis Rodman wants to talk to you… He wants to talk about Lebron”.

Rodman wanted to call-in to talk about LeBron James and the Miami Heat. However, Sedano says that he later learned that the LeBron talk was a back-up plan.

“Apparently they tried to call Howard Stern first,” said Sedano, “but Howard was off that day… Dennis was living in Miami, his agent lived in Miami, the agent I guess listened to me and was like ‘let’s just call Sedano and talk about LeBron’ and that’s how that all transpired.”

You can listen to the rest of Sedano’s discussion on Thursday and all of The Sports Talkers Podcast with Stephen Strom here and anywhere you can download a podcast, including on YouTube on the Barrett Sports Media page.

Joy Taylor Says Aaron Rodgers Is More Likeable After Pardon My Take Appearance

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
