“I’m confident in myself. My career is going well. I have a voice, a platform, and I’ve grown enough of a thick skin that I don’t care what you say to me. But had I been in this environment when I was first starting out, and getting the type of hate that exists on these social media platforms, it would’ve been really hard for me to deal with.” – Sarah Spain

*NOTE: This is Part 2 of our interview with Sarah Spain.  If you haven’t yet, go back and listen to Episode 071.

Sarah Spain has done it all… and not just in the sports media world.

The once-aspiring comedian has also dabbled in being a restaurant server, a ring girl at a boxing match where no one spoke English, a character in a Chinese video game and more.

Spain knew where she was most comfortable and authentic in the working world, and that was sports.

And then she jumped onto eBay, and everything changed (you’ll just have to listen).

As with most guests on the podcast, her road to success in sports radio, TV and writing is a very original one, but this one is easily one of the most fascinating.

And in the end, her endless talent shone through. Her comedic style, intelligence and humility are on display in many places, including here on this edition of The PASR.

INSIDE THIS EPISODE

  • When she felt like she was being hired based on her talents not her looks
  • How she’d describe her weekly show “The Trifecta” on ESPN Radio
  • The moment in her career when she realized she was on the right track
  • The pros and cons of being interactive on social media
  • What she learned from doing the PSA mean-tweets style video
  • Not gaining traction in music/comedy but learning about her strengths in the process
  • The various things that took place at her wedding and what she loved most about it
  • Her bad jobs early on while pursuing a career in the entertainment industry
