Kevin, Anthony, and Russ pull back the curtain on how writers and reporters use sourced information. With decades of combined experience on the beat for the Flyers, Sixers, and Union, Kevin and Anthony provide great insight into what makes a good source, how to cultivate relationships, and the push-and-pull of maintaining organizational contacts. The guys also discuss what leads to bad reports and how different news organizations uphold different standards.
