Mr. Triple Jump ,

5 stars isn’t enough! This needs 6 stars!

I don’t even know where to start when it comes to reviewing this podcast. I’ve been a huge fan of Stephen A ever since i first watched him and Skip on First Take in college back in 2012-2013 i believe. As a graduate of Delaware State University, it was truly a gift to watch another HBCU graduate shake the set and television atmosphere with his takes, energy and extensive use of vocabulary. I use to do this hashtag on Twitter called #FirstTakeVocab where i would post the definition of a new word myself and colleagues would learn just from watching Stephen A’s takes.
Fast forward to 2023 and it’s still my all time favorite TV show to watch when possible. With my current work schedule, i can’t catch First Take live 😢 but I wait patiently for it to come out on Podcast and YouTube so i can always stay updated.

For Stephen A to bless us AGAIN with No Mercy is honestly the best thing ever!! I haven’t missed an episode and it’s the first thing i listen to when i get to work at 5AM. It’s been a treat to take in all of the topics, notes and knowledge that Stephen A has dedicated to giving us along with his special guests. This review does not sum up how thankful and truly grateful I am to have a man like Stephen A to look up to and have as a role model going on 10 years. There’s not a moment in my day where i don’t think about the life lessons Stephen A has given me and use that to make my life and days more achievable.

To that, I say Thank You Stephen A Smith for being who you are and putting us HBCUs on the map. You really are that BAAAAAAAAAAAADDD MAN!!! MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT! 💯 ❤️ ✊🏾
God Bless You!

Respect!

I have much respect for Stephen A. smith. He says what he means and means what he says. He is by far the best debater of all time, hands down, and is work history is phenomenal!

Extra woke

Stephen A. is getting woker and woker in order to live up to his ESPN contract. I miss the original Stephan A. Smith radio show that got uploaded as a podcast. He calls himself an independent, yet every podcast aside from Sean Hannity features a far left pundit and all the other episodes are always about woke stuff.
