Hi everybody I’m Brian Clapp Director of Content for and this is the work in sports podcast…

Normally on Mondays and Fridays I answer a fan question, which is great fun for me because I know I am solving a problem for many of you.Your Sports Career Questions Answered

At the same time, there are some great stories going on in our community – people landing jobs, getting internships, going to conferences so here and there on Friday’s I’m going to pull someone from our growing community on the show to discuss something they are doing as part of their effort to launch their sports career that is inspiring, unique, valuable – or just pretty darn cool.

Last week was the Masters, the prototypical sign of spring and the best golf event of the year – even if you aren’t a golf fan, you recognize how cool the Masters is. So when I heard through our private Facebook group that Jake Kernen, one of our dedicated fans and motivated sports career enthusiasts worked the event – I wanted to know more.

Jake and I talked earlier this week while he drove back to Florida State where he is a student, from Augusta National. Pretty cool experience – check it out:

Listen in for the conversation with Brian and Jake!

Here’s the deal --- there are some awesome stories happening out there in our community, and sharing these stories that inspire and teach is the goal of this show – sure we’ll continue with our expert guests and our QA sessions – but here is your call to action – email me at with your stories and experience that you think are worth sharing with the community, we’re all in this together.

Thanks to Jake, have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you on Monday.
