Excellent without being ridiculous
I started taking in Mitch's podcast because I was annoyed at the local sports radio tomfoolery; I needed intelligent and humorous coverage of the Seahawks that wasn't condescending or asinine and Mitch Unfiltered provides that in spades. Mitch and the boys have their moments because it IS a sports show, after all, and you've got to expect some fun stuff, but the coverage is excellent and I never go without the Monday show or the Patreon-level episodes, especially with Danny O'Neil.
Thanks for the great work, Mitch!
Keep doing what you do
Mitch, just wanted to throw some positivity your way - you have been the voice of sports for me since ‘95. With that said - just kidding…I love the show, format and interviews. I am grateful that technology allows me to feel connected to the PNW while living in Florida. Keep it up and know that at least for this guy, I have no complaints! R, Mike F - St. Augustine, FL.
Must listen pod
I've been a subscriber since episode 0 and became a Patron a few months after that. Mitch's calling card used to be sports talk, but now he has shown himself to be an excellently well rounded observer and commentator. Whether it is local Seattle sports or issues of mental health or national issues Mitch Unfiltered is the highlight of my podcast feed multiple times throughout the week. I think he should be a part of your feed too.
