All Said and Done

Got onboard the [BRACKET!] train a month or two before they’d posted their final episode. Unfortunately I wasn’t around for the crazy ride that was this show until the very end. I am however endlessly enjoying it from the beginning as this cast of characters gets every single thing wrong in the most charming way possible. Listen to this show.

THIS PODCAST SLAPS HARD!

As an avid podcast listener, I found this podcast about a year ago when browsing iTunes for some more ranking podcasts. I typed in best tv show theme songs and was not disappointed. Yes, these guys go off topic constantly; yes, their tangents can be long, but this is simply part of the Bracket podcast’s charm. This podcast not only gives you the most definitive or humorous answers for what the best blank is, but also trickles in a few of the hosts’ experiences. Cullen has one of the most distinctive voices in podcasting. Congratulations on continuing the podcast for as long as it did. I’m going to miss this podcast when it’s gone... thank you for creating this outstanding and incredibly humorous podcast!

Note if you had watched the “Best Second Place” episode. I am a real person. My name is pronounced Dar-E-us. I am not dairy product. I did edit this review because I did not proof read it before posting. I should seriously get grammarly on my phone. Again, thank you all for the hours of joy you have brought to me and many others. I truly appreciate this podcast for what has to offer: fun, comedy, and little bit of experience. Good luck, to you all on your future endeavours; be it podcasting or in general.

Great Podcast

This is a podcast where a group of friends decide the best of any category.

The Sweet 16 format is unique. And sometimes the topics can be out of left field... Like “Best Paw.”
It can also cover very serious topics such as “Best Sonic the Hedgehog Character.”

Sometimes it can be infuriating when your favorite entry gets knocked out by a joke entry. But you have to trust that Jesse, Cullen, Dan and Persia are experts in their field.
All other opinions are wrong and you have to accept that.

Been a fan for a while and I’m just now getting to writing a review. I definitely recommend you give this podcast listen.
