On this week’s episode of the Salt City Hoops Podcast, we interview the Deseret News’ Utah Jazz beat reporter, Jody Genessy, about life as an NBA beat writer. We talk about the long hours and the perks of Marriott status. We also go behind the scenes and find out what it’s like to interview LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and find out who on the Jazz is the best interview. We also talk about our favorite coaches to interview… where do Jason Kidd, Mark Jackson, and Doc Rivers rank? All that, plus the Crazy Trade Idea of the Week, on this mid-August edition of the Salt City Hoops Podcast!

    It’s always a good time when Jody stops by! Thanks for the glimpse into beat-writer life. A little disappointed neither of you asked him about starting his personal blog back up. *sad trombone*

    PS–audio sounded great!

      Thanks, Angie. I can’t believe I’ve denied you a new blog this long. I’ll have to see about rectifying that soon.
