Jason Whitlock To Host Weekly Fox Sports Radio Podcast

Starting on Wednesday, FoxSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock will host a weekly podcast called Real Talk with Jason Whitlock.

If you’re familiar with Whitlock’s work from The Kansas City Star, then you won’t be surprised to learn that former quarterback Jeff George will be the first guest on the podcast.

Whitlock and George were high school teammates at Warren Central High School in Indianapolis, Ind.

This has the potential to be a weekly train wreck, but in a great way.

Let’s not forget about the last time Whitlock graced the microphone following his departure from The Kansas City Star.

I’ll be listening for sure.

Update: Jason Whitlock tweeted that Jay Mariotti will be his guest on Real Talk and the podcast will be made available at midnight EST.
