It’s OK

But to be honest it feels just as hot-takey as any talk radio, but the hosts veil their opinions with numbers. But I listen because Zach Lowe only makes so many podcasts.

Great but imperfect.

Love the podcast. But sometimes I am pretty confident they don’t actually watch the games they talk about (2018 playoffs). That is a little frustrating. But overall good stuff.

The Lab: Use Stats!

For the love of god, please use more stats in this podcast! I know you guys all look at stats so tell us what they are. When you don’t include them, your opinions seem unfounded. People listen to 538 for data-based analysis, which is tragically not on display in this podcast.
