52 weeks a year The Rich Eisen Podcast discusses the ins and outs of the greatest game in the world with some of the biggest names from the gridiron, the silver-screen and beyond. This week the #REP strays a bit from its pigskin coverage to bring a first-hand account of a story that gripped the nation, nay the world last week. Podcast producer Chris Law was aboard US Airways flight 598 last week when man’s (alleged) “best-friend’ caused the aircraft to emergency land mid-flight.  His live-tweeting of the event made international, yes international headlines. So what exactly happened 30,000 feet up? Law recalls the full, unfiltered account of the near thirteen hour flight to both Rich Eisen and Chris Brockman to kick off this week’s show.

Up next, Fox Soccer VP of Programming Jason “The Worm” Wormser returns to the show after a long hiatus. The former NFL Network senior producers discusses with the crew some of the offseason NFL storylines and then previews the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup, which begins next week in Brazil.

A little more than two weeks removed from being selected 32nd overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2014 NFL Draft, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater dials into “The Rich Eisen Podcast.”  The three-year standout Louisville Cardinal talks with Eisen about the draft process, getting acclimated to life as a pro early on, if he expects to be the starter Week 1and more.

Actor and friend of the program Jerry Ferrara then swings by our NFL Media studios to talk about his Giants draft class and a sneaky undrafted free agent signing of the G-Men that he’s pretty stoked about.  Ferrara just wrapped up shooting the highly anticipated “Entourage” movie and the film’s set was no stranger to some big-name NFL players who have cameos in the flick, which hits theatres in the summer of 2015.  Ferrara tells one story of Russell Wilson’s day on set shooting his scene — one that ended with a star of the movie heading to the hospital with a broken leg as a result.  Jerry’s been a busy man of late, training to play Arturo Gatti in an upcoming biopic about the late boxing champion, and he also has “Think Like A Man Too” hitting theatres June 20th. It’s always a fun time when Ferrara stops by, and of course we can’t let him leave without having him weigh in on the Johnny Manziel/Memorial Day Weekend/Las Vegas story — or non-story depending on how you look at it.

The show wraps up with two of the funniest guys in the business, Randy and Jason Sklar of the popular “Sklarbros Country Podcast” join the #REP crew in studio.  “The Sklar Bros: What Are We Talking About?” is a newly released comedy special the duo have on Netflix, and the introduction to the special is hosted by none other than Rich Eisen himself, so be sure to check it out and stream it… Read

Actor Kevin Costner joins Rich Eisen in studio for this week’s edition of The Rich Eisen Podcast.Costner, who has starred in a handful of the greatest sports movies of all-time, is back at tackling the sports genre again in his latest film “Draft Day.” The two-time Academy Award winner traded in his wooden bat and ball cap for a suit and seat in the front office in “Draft Day,” where he plays Sonny Weaver Jr., the fictional general manager of the Cleveland Browns. Shot partially on location at New York’s Radio City Music Hall during the 2013 NFL Draft, the film takes place over a 16-hour period during the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
