Albuquerque Bill ,

Enjoying

You are “must listen pod” for me. Great news and takes👍🏼

itsmeeppp ,

Enjoyable if sometimes irritating

Overall I enjoy this podcast. I especially enjoy when they bring in Kuip or have interviews with players and coaches. I also enjoy the lighthearted banter and it doesn’t bother me when they go off topic. Sometimes Alex comes off as kind of dismissive/full of himself but that’s my only complaint!

duyrendy ,

Keeps me updating. Thanks. :)

First of all, you’re the best. I am a HUGE giants fan. But as you know, before the 2020 season, they basically sucked. So I stopped being involved. But in 2021, I was searching giants on podcasts. And I find this podcast called giants talk. So I listen to one podcast. And I found out that the giants were having a great season and with so much information, I got involved again. Without you guys I wouldn’t know the GIANTS MADE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE! The 107 wins would be all wasted. But cause of y’all, I know. Now I basically listen to it every day. (It’s amazing.) so thank you so much Alex and cole. Keep it up.
