The Bigs

A sports podcast from MLB.com
Website: https://www.mlb.com/fans/podcasts

Credits: Xavier Scruggs (Host) (edit)

Welcome to MLB’s first player-to-player podcast! Xavier Scruggs played professional baseball for 12 years, reaching the Majors with the Cardinals and the Marlins. Now he’s taking fans behind the scenes with the biggest stars in the game today. We’re getting deep into the topics you won’t hear about in a postgame press conference, like the times All-Stars and MVPs leveled up into legends, when they doubted themselves and how they spoke out for change. From clubhouse relationships to career turning points, nothing is off the table.

This podcast may use tracking and attribution and dynamic content insertion

Stats: Statistics are produced by Megaphone to help The Bigs to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Megaphone is IAB v2 certified.

Tracking and attribution: Megaphone and Nielsen or their partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - they may spot a device that downloaded an episode of The Bigs later visited the website of an advertiser; or they may track that a device that listened to The Bigs also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Megaphone may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. The Bigs may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

The Bigs is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
