In Episode #11 of Season 1 of the Strive Sports Podcast, Keegan (@KeeganHartman1 via Twitter) sits down with one of the most renowned insiders of spring football, Pro Football Network's James Larsen (@jameslarsenpfn via Twitter) to discuss updates surrounding the USFL-XFL merger talks.

Nearing his fourth year of covering spring league football, coupled with over 650+ articles, and numerous interviews, Larsen sits down with Keegan to discuss what inspired his pursuit for a career in spring league football media.

Likewise, James offers an extensive breakdown of USFL-XFL merger negotiations, and how we've got to where we are as of the first week of December. With a tentative start date of March 30th for the newly named UFL spring league (allegedly), what will the next two months entail for free agents, rookies, and staffing? Not to mention the other logistics such as scheduling, television broadcasts, merchandising, and more! With so much still needing figured out, Larsen provides a little bit of clarity on how the two leagues got to where we currently stand, and where they will go going forward...
