Unbelievably, after a four-year run, this is the last-ever incarnation of “The Rich Eisen Podcast.” Frequently, in this business, shows like this don’t end at the host’s request or behest. Usually, shows named after the host come to an abrupt close when the host is shown the door by security while holding office belongings in a cardboard box.

Thankfully, the reason why I’m shuttering this podcast after four wonderful years is because it’s turning into a daily three-hour TV show airing on DirecTV’s Audience Channel No. 239 and streaming live on the latest venture brought to you by NFL Media, the NFL Now app. NFL Now is also the home to the video archive of the show, which will also be available in audio podcast form on Podcast One as well as iTunes and virtually every other place you’ve been able to download this program over its lifespan. Best of all for our listeners, NFL Now is internationally available too.

It’s truly exciting news for your humble host and my podcast compadres Chris Law and Chris Brockman, who are traveling with the show’s move to a bigger and broader platform.

I started this podcast at the outset of the 2010 season because I thought there was a space in which to connect with the NFL Network fan base and have a conversation about the NFL and the entertainment world in one sitting. And I was rewarded with four years of stupendous football chatter involving fascinating figures from the gridiron and guests from across the TV, movie and music spectrum. Best yet, it did in fact get me closer to myriad football fans worldwide. I can not thank you enough for your passionate listenership. Please follow the show with us into the new horizon. We could not have done it without you. Thanks again and, as always, enjoy this listen.

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

Eisen and the gang are joined midway through the podcast by NFL Media draft analysts Daniel Jeremiah and Charles Davis to discuss a variety of draft topics, including: Will Johnny Manziel be under center when the Browns head to Pittsburgh in Week 1? How did Jaguars general manager David Caldwell keep it a secret that Blake Bortles was his guy all along with the third-overall pick?  Michael Sam finally heard his name called with the 249th pick in Round 7, but when the dust settles, does he have the skill set to… Read

With just a little more than a week until the 2014 NFL Draft gets underway at Radio City Music Hall, NFL draft maven Mike Mayock dials in to chat with Rich Eisen about this year’s class.  Why is Teddy Bridgewater slipping out of the first round? Is there a chance Khalil Mack gets selected over Jadeveon Clowney? Is Johnny Manziel the answer for troubled franchises like Jacksonville or Cleveland?  Mayock and Eisen hit on all of it and more.

The show then shifts gears in a major way, welcoming in actor and comedian Bob Saget.  Saget joins the #REP crew in studio to talk about his new book “Dirty Daddy,” and shares stories from his past. Many know Bob Saget from his wholesome role on “Full House,” or as the goofy host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”  And then there is a whole other section of Saget fans who know him from directing films like “Dirty Work,” his hysterical stand-up comedy or his profane appearances in “Entourage” or the documentary “The Aristocrats.” The latter is the Bob Saget that showed up for this edition of podcast, and he couldn’t have been… 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.

Costner also shares some incredible stories along the way from sets of his previous films like “Bull Durham,” “Field of Dreams,” “Dances with Wolves” and more. It’s a fascinating listen with one of Hollywood’s finest actors, and be sure to check out “Draft Day” in theatres this Friday, April 11.
