Bleacher report When the top players on the NFL’s most-watched sports broadcast team play each other in a live podcast, it’s a unique experience.
This week on the Bleacherreport podcast, we’ll get a sneak peek at the 2017 season.
We’ll also hear from one of the game’s most prolific producers, Derek Fisher, who has built an impressive reputation as one of football’s best podcast producers.
For the past several years, Fisher has helped create the Bleachers podcast with host Mike Francesa, who’s produced a host of shows including NFL Live, The Ringer NFL Podcast, and BleacherReport.com.
This past season, Fisher co-hosted a special “Mahi Mahi Fish” episode featuring Dolphins defensive tackle Manti Te’o and Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Fisher also contributed an interview to the season premiere of “The MMQB” as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the NFL Players Association’s upcoming “Rethinking Football” conference.
For his part, Fisher shared some insight into the process of creating podcasts for the league.
For one, Fisher said he started with a list of potential topics for his podcast, and then he read through the NFL archives to come up with a narrative.
In Fisher’s opinion, it takes a lot of guts to create a podcast, even when you’ve been doing it for years.
For Fisher, he says, “The biggest thing I learned from working with Mike is you’re not in the business of producing a hit show, you’re in the game of producing compelling content.”
The podcast that Fisher and Francesa started is the first one that has ever featured a full-time producer and hosts.
He said that the “Marias Mahi Mua” episode, which aired last year, has since been downloaded over 3 million times.
Fisher, a New Yorker, is known for his passion for the game and has made many documentaries and other works that have been watched by millions of fans worldwide.
He’s also the co-creator of the NFL Network’s “Madden NFL 25” series, which has been a hit since it premiered in 2014.
The podcast was initially created for Francesa because he wanted to create something that would give fans a deeper insight into sports in a different way.
“He knew I was interested in this business and that I loved the game,” Fisher said.
“It was my way of being able to give a glimpse into the culture of the sport, to give fans that sense of authenticity that I wanted.
And he felt like he had to get in the mix to create this.
I think it’s an incredible way to get a deeper look into the world of football, as opposed to just the fantasy of the league.”
After getting his start as a podcaster, Fisher moved on to the production side of things, which he now co-runs with former NFL player and Bleachers producer Matt Besser.
In addition to the podcast, Bessers also produces the “Ridiculousness” series that he co-created with Fisher and other podcasters.
In that show, Besseler, Fisher, and others look into some of the more ridiculous stories that are out there and share them with fans.
Besser said that his favorite moment from his time with the NFL was working with Fisher on the “SportsCenter” podcast that aired last summer.
“I remember we did the whole sports podcast thing, and we’d get on the phone and say, ‘Hey, we’re doing a sports podcast.
Can we have your podcast on?’
And he said, ‘Sure.’
And we’d start playing.
And then he would get a bunch of people on, and it was hilarious,” Bessser said.
The “Mardi Gras” episode of the podcast has been downloaded more than 30 million times and was one of Fisher’s favorites.
He shared that his friend and fellow podcaster Greg Bedard said the show’s “Rids’ Rodeo” was his favorite.
“We had to have it.
And we had to do it the next day.
And the next.
And next,” Fisher recalled.
“And we had a great time doing it.
It was just a great episode.”
Fisher, whose career has included more than 15 years with the Dallas Cowboys and several other teams, has a long history in the field of sports broadcasting.
He joined NFL Live in 2004 and has appeared on “SportsCenters” and “The MNF” podcasts.
Fisher has also worked for ESPN, ESPN Radio, and NFL Network.
He said that he’s been working with Francesa since his time at ESPN, and that they have a great relationship.
“My relationship with Mike has been really good, and I feel like I’ve had a lot more freedom with Derek than I’ve ever had with Mike,” Fisher told Bleacher.
“Mike is always willing
