The NFL 100 Greatest podcast is a specially-produced 20-episode series counting down the greatest NFL memories in five categories — Plays, Games, Characters, Game Changers and Teams. Produced in conjunction with NFL Films and voiced by longtime NFL broadcaster James Brown, the podcast is an original audio version of the NFL 100 Greatest series airing on NFL Network. The series will feature hundreds of interviews with celebrities and current and former NFL stars.

Two new podcast episodes will debut each Friday night starting on September 13 at 10:00 pm ET and 11:00 pm ET with episodes focused on the Greatest Plays. New episodes will debut at 11:00 pm ET and midnight ET each Friday thereafter. The podcasts will debut on SiriusXM NFL Radio and be available immediately after on SiriusXM On Demand and on Pandora.

“Long before I was involved with the NFL as a broadcaster I was an avid fan of the game, and I’m very proud to celebrate its 100th season by being a part of this series and sharing so many great memories with SiriusXM and Pandora listeners,” said Brown, who has covered the NFL for more than 30 years. “NFL 100 Greatest is a wonderful trip back in time, and NFL fans are going to really enjoy it.”
