The Washington Football Talk podcast is anchored by NBC Sports Washington's Washington Football Insider JP Finlay and highlights all members of our coverage team including Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey along with plenty of others. Finlay will also reach out to a host of outside influencers both in the D.C. media and the national landscape. With a strong set of personal relationships built on years covering the team, Finlay brings a fresh and engaging style to interviews with players, coaches and alumni for the podcast.
There's officially a new (temporary) name for the NFL franchise that calls the nation's capital home, and JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to discuss that major, major news. To start, you'll hear those three, plus Brian Mitchell, react to the announcement that, in 2020, the organization will be known as the Washington Football Team (using audio from their weekly Facebook Live show, which you should be tuning in for). In that segment, you'll hear why they're all largely in favor of the choice and how it was rolled out, too. Eventually, you'll then get JP's one-on-one with Terry Bateman, who is the team's new executive vice president and chief marketing officer, where JP asks Terry about how they came to the decision and how they'll handle settling on a new name moving forward. And at the end, JP, Mitch and Pete catch up after what's been a truly hectic stretch. If you like podcasts where you get tons of analysis on this next (and probably short) era and Pete denounces kids, then this is the episode for you.
