Sideshow Network & Writer, Filmmaker Joshua Neuman Score a Touchdown With Their New Podcast "The Greatest Show on Grass", Exploring the NFL Rams Franchise
Los Angeles, March 15, 2016 (Newswire.com) - As a follow up to their success with the MMA Roasted Podcast and in anticipation of the return of the Rams Football Franchise to Los Angeles, Sideshow Network has launched their latest sports podcast “The Greatest Show on Grass”, hosted by Los Angeles-based writer, filmmaker, and Rams chronicler Joshua Neuman. “The Greatest Show On Grass: Los Angeles Rams Podcast” celebrates the present-day NFL team against the backdrop of its rich and little-known Hollywood past. It’s easy to find coverage of the present-day team’s latest free agent acquisition or the injury status of one of it’s players. How Bob Hope, Robert Kennedy, and Kendrick Lamar fit into the team’s story is a little harder to come by. Guests will run the gamut from players to cheerleaders, comics to critics. This is a sports podcast but also a love letter between Los Angeles and it’s first franchise to win a championship. For fans of the present day team, it is a bridge to the team’s forgotten history—for others, it is a jargon-free and bro free zone to experience a veritable “Rams 101". Long before the St. Louis Rams of 1999-2001 were The Greatest Show on Turf, the Los Angeles Rams were The Greatest Show on Grass.
About The Host: Joshua Neuman’s career has spanned magazines, television, film, and academia. He taught courses in the Philosophy of Religion for five years at New York University before joining the founding editors of the satirical Jewish culture magazine, Heeb. Over the course of eight years as the magazine’s editor, Neuman collaborated with Brett Ratner, Sarah Silverman, Shepard Fairey, Robert Crumb, and Carrie Brownstein. He has appeared on The Travel Channel, BBC Radio, VH1, The Sundance Channel, A & E Biography, Court TV, National Public Radio, and Extra, written jokes for The Friar’s Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino, and is a producer of the forthcoming ESPN Films 30 for 30 about ex-Los Angeles Laker A.C. Green. Neuman has been covering the Rams for the past two years for Los Angeles Magazine.
