In the next part of our ongoing “Getting to know the writers” series, I sit down with James Rael to discuss a wide range of topics. Some of what we discussed includes:

  • What made him a Falcons fan and what kind of connection he has to Atlanta sports
  • Some of his earliest memories of the team
  • His decade-plus time in writing about the team and what got him started
  • Why Matt Ryan is hands down his favorite player and Deion Sanders and Tony Gonzalez aren’t far behind
  • That time he made Takkarist McKinley so mad that he blocked most of the Falcoholic writing staff on twitter (myself included)
  • So much more.

As always, you can find the podcast wherever fine podcasts are available or you can listen below:
