Eric Burgher joined Medill Sports Podcast host Elan Kane to talk about his unique opportunity to travel to Houston with his classmates to cover all of the events surrounding Super Bowl LI. The trip was part of Medill Explores, a week-long suspension of classes that enables graduate students to travel across the country and around the world to connect with Medill alumni and be exposed to life as a professional journalist.

Burgher talked about how he found the stories he reported on, what it was like being in Houston for the Big Game and what else he’s enjoyed about his Medill experience.
