“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” – Queen
If you play fantasy sports, then you know who Matthew Berry is. He’s an expert on the subject and helped popularize it from being a backroom secret to a pop culture phenomenon. And if you follow him, then you are probably aware that he has left ESPN.
It’s important to note that this episode was recorded before his ESPN departure and you may hear some references to things that seem out of time or place.
Matthew’s story is inspiring. It’s an incredible story of perseverance and never giving up on your dreams. We talk about what it was like to grow up in football-heaven Texas, his days of being a Hollywood show writer on “Married With Children”, how he became a New York Times best-selling author and yes, all things fantasy sports. Let’s get UpFront with Matthew Berry.
