So interesting and well done

I don’t watch Real Sports but these podcasts episodes are always so interesting. Stories I wouldn’t otherwise know. Perfect length for a nugget of a store.

Amazing alternative

The podcast is just as good as the show and gives the audience a chance to pull back the curtain a bit on the stories. The host is great and the stories are best in the industry. Excited for more episodes to come out.
