Inside the Box is back with an all-new limited episode season! We kick things off in conversation with sports media scholar, Dr. Travis Vogan to discuss his book Keepers of the Flame: NFL Films and the Rise of Sports Media. In fitting with this season’s focus on history and collective memory that often goes beyond the television screen (or “box”), Travis and Jonathan discuss NFL Films’s role in crafting how we think about the league, in what ways that has changed with the newer emphasis on the NFL Network, and the role databases and metadata has played in helping to structure this mindset.
