Sports Industry veteran Troy Kirby interviews the team behind the teams; those who work in the sports industry but rarely are seen by the media. Examined in this podcast are current and long-standing industry topics such as ticket sales, third party vendors, sports business, revenue, marketing, mentoring interns, facilities, managing employees, as well as how to not only break into sports, but stay in the industry long-term. The often-invisible side of the industry is where the Tao of Sports Podcast attempts to pull back the elusive curtain, providing information both to industry insiders and those who want to work in sports.
