Better Collective has launched ‘Great Dane Nation’ presented by VegasInsider.com, a podcast series where Morten Andersen interviews legends from the National Football League (NFL) about the most defining moments in the sport’s history.
The latest installment in the growing VegasInsider Podcast Network, fronted by NFL Hall of Famer Andersen, is perfectly timed as this year’s NFL gets underway tomorrow when Houston Texans take on Super Bowl Champions, Kansas City Chiefs.
As well as Andersen talking with NFL legends about these iconic moments, the podcast will also include analysis from VegasInsider.com’s sports betting experts and analysts on NFL matches throughout the season.
The first episode was launched today with first guest Archie Manning, a 13-year NFL veteran and the father of former NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning. It will be followed by a weekly episode throughout the NFL season.
Marc Pedersen, CEO of Better Collective US, said: “I am very pleased to launch this premium podcast series to further strengthen the position of VegasInsider as the go-to platform for sports fans in the US. To be able to attract the attention from the American audience you need to offer unique content and with 25 seasons in the NFL, Morten Andersen has a suitcase full of experiences and stories – also untold ones – which I look very much forward to him unfolding.
“Adding to that, he is an amazing storyteller so I am confident that the listeners of Great Dane Nation can look forward to some highly interesting talks and stories. As a passionate NFL fan myself, I will definitely tune in.”
Andersen was inducted into the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017 following 25 seasons representing teams such as Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. Throughout his career ‘The Great Dane’ participated in seven Pro Bowls before retiring in 2008 as the all-time leader for games played and points scored in NFL history. Two times he has been included in the NFL All-Decade team.
“I look forward to catching up with many of my good friends from The National Football League and retelling some of their great moments in the history of the game,” said Andersen. “This will be a powerful podcast series with lots of legendary athletes who will share their intimate and unique perspective on their iconic journey through one of the most competitive sports in the world.”
