Released Thursday, 21st June 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
A rare, wide-ranging conversation with Amy Palcic, the first woman to run an NFL PR department.

Palcic takes the listener inside her job including that monumental night when J.J. Watt decided to start a small fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey. Palcic also offers great insight into the modern pr-media relationship and considers how men and women may cover the sport differently.

Also in this episode, Melissa shares what is most exciting her about the upcoming NFL season (hint: think robust QB rooms). Later we hand name our first TFG Do-Gooder.
