Alex Rodriguez teams up with Barstool Sports for podcast ‘The Corp’


WELCOME BACK. BETWEEN THREE REWARDS, YANKEES AND JENNIFER LOPEZ, ALEX RODRIGUEZ IS NO STRANGER TO ATTENTION. HIS LATEST MOVE IS RAISING EYEBROWS. A PODCAST ABOUT BUSINESS. LIKE MOST NAMES, IT’S A HIT WITH OVER 11 MILLION DOWNLOADS. HE SAT DOWN WITH ME TO TALK ABOUT THE ADVENTURE AND WHY IT’S SO SUCCESSFUL AND WITH IT, HAD ANOTHER BIG LAUNCH THIS UPCOMING TUESDAY.>>WE CAME OUT WITH A NUMBER ONE SHOW. IT WAS PHENOMENAL, SO MUCH FUN. WE HAD INCREDIBLE GUESTS, PEOPLE LIKE KOBE BRYANT AND MARTHA STEWART. I THINK YOU CAN EXPECT A LOT OF WHAT YOU’VE HEARD, PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT A COMMON THEME AND HOW TO COME OUT OF FAILURES. THEY DID NOT WANT TO DEFINE THOSE MISTAKES. THEY CAME BACK AS CHAMPIONS THAT THEY ARE.>>I WAS HONORED THAT. ALEX, YOU ARE WILL LIKE, WHAT ABOUT FAILURES? IT’S AN EMPOWERING PODCAST.>>THEY WERE VERY INVESTED IN PODCAST, YOU THINK THERE’S A CONNECTION BETWEEN A HOST AND LISTENER AND CONVERSATION, IT HAPPENS INTIMATELY IN YOUR EARS. IT’S FREE-FORM, THE DIALOGUE CAN GO ANYWHERE. IT’S REALLY AMAZING, WE WANTED TO MAKE THE STORIES ABOUT FAILURES AND SUCCESS IN YOUR TIME ON THE TRAINING, YOU WANT THAT TO COME TO LIFE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE THINKING ABOUT WHAT’S THEIR CAREER GOING TO BE LIKE, WHAT’S NEXT FOR THEM? WEEK DEBUT AS THE NUMBER ONE PODCAST WHICH IS PRETTY PHENOMENAL FOR A BUSINESS PODCAST FROM A COMPANY LIKE THIS ONE. WE WERE THRILLED TO PARTNER WITH ALEX. WHAT WE REALLY CARE ABOUT THAT IT IS CLEARLY RESONATING WITH PEOPLE AND SHARING IT WITH THEIR FRIENDS AND TAKING AWAY SOMETHING FROM OFF THE CONVERSATIONS.>>IT GIVES YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO BEYOND SPACE BARR. A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR PHENOMENAL TIME ON THE FIELD BUT YOU ARE A REAL ESTATE ELSEWHERE, TELL ME ABOUT WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU RIGHT NOW AND WHERE YOU SEE YOUR CAREER EVOLVING.>>I STARTED MY BUSINESS CAREER OUT OF FEAR. I FELT LIKE THE AVERAGE CAREER WAS A YEAR, I WOULD HAVE FIVE AND A HALF IT WOULD BE MY ANSWER TO NOT GO BANKRUPT. WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITIES WE ARE SEEING IN HEALTH AND WELLNESS AND IT CONTINUES TO BE BUT WHEN I LOOK AT THIS PARTNERSHIP, IT’S SO MUCH FUN BECAUSE THE WORLD IS SHORT FORMAT BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A LOT OF LISTENING TO THEIR STORIES AND WITH THIS FORMAT, IT ALLOWS YOU TO CONNECT TO THE CONSUMER BETTER AND I TO GET INSPIRED AND LEARNED A LOT.>>A LONGER CONVERSATION IS SO MUCH BETTER. OTHER TRAITS YOU PICKED UP FROM SOME OF YOUR INTERVIEWS THAT YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT THAT IS A TREND THAT GOES THROUGH EVERYBODY?>>FOR ME, IT WAS THE THEME OF NEVER GIVING UP. NINE OUT OF TEN YOU WILL BE TOLD NO. IF THEY HIT THREE OUT OF TEN, 30%, 300, YOU’RE A HALL OF FAMER. YOU ARE WHO YOU SURROUND YOURSELF WITH. EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT TEAM, BEING A YANKEE AND FOR THIRD PART, THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX. NOT BEING SO, THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE. YOU ARE A BASEBALL PLAYER AND YOU CAN’T MOVE, THE GREAT ONES SAID WHY NOT?>>THE TENTH LARGEST BRAND, REACHING 65 MILLION VIEWERS AND MAKE THIS YEAR. SPEAKING OF BRANDS, NOW A LOT OF TALK ABOUT QUICKENING UP THE GAME, YOU GOT ROBOTIC UMPIRES, WHAT YOU TAKE OF THESE CHANGES HAPPENING?>>CHANGE IS IMPORTANT. IT WAS THE NUMBER ONE SPORT FOR ABOUT THE ENTIRE PAST CENTURY. NOW YOU HAVE NFL AND NBA TAKING MARKET SHARE. WE STARTED TO DO THIS ALREADY, THINK ABOUT BASEBALL IS AN ENTERTAINING BUSINESS, NOT JUST SPORTS. HOW DO WE CONNECT TO OUR CONSUMERS? HOW DO WE TURN A REALLY LONG GAME AND MAKE IT A POSITIVE, NOT A NEGATIVE? 4:00 P.M. TO 7:00 P.M., I SHOULD BE ABLE TO LOOK AT MY PHONE AND SEE WHAT AARON JUDGE IS DOING AND MIKE TROUT BUT NOW WE ARE NOT DOING THAT. THEY STARTED WITH THAT. ESPN IS FOLLOWING.

  1. Yeah. Thats what we need. More corporations! 'Cause wallstreet has nothing to do with our current mess of a country.

  2. This dude is a cheater he got caught using muscle enhance drugs and said he did that not a legend, BARRY BONDS is a legend he was accused of the same , but they found no evidence he did and he never said he did! A rod was never the best he was just ok!

  3. Why is A-Roid still allowed to make money from his Lifetime of being one of the most egregious cheaters of All Time….Nice choice for his guests…Kobe the Rapist and Martha the Convict…A-Roid runs in classy circles…What doesnt the Sheep understand about this POS …He CHEATED every second of every game he played in…likely started in High School..

  4. the fortune of US has been grown up to 2000 billion dollars last year , twice the size larger and richer than 10 years ago. it is the richest country in the world. where is the fortune? it's not in the poors' pocket but the riches'.'they including Trump have taken away 95% of the fortune.
