Customer ReviewsSee All
Love it, listen to it everyday.
I listened to this religiously, I eventually figured out that the show swiftly deteriorates into a yelling match between Stephen and Max with Molly floundering in the background and being disrespected by both of them. It’s total trash which relies on sensationalism and the lowest common denominator in an attempt to stay relevant
Worst quality podcast
Enjoy Stephen A, but the quality of the production of this podcast is horrible. No one checks the podcast after editing it together from the TV show. Nearly every episode either has long periods of skipping conversations or loud reverberations randomly from editing. Also sometimes you'll be left with 10 minutes of silence or replaying the last 10 minutes of conversation again. So poorly edited and produced for an ESPN podcast
