Better before Beck

Chris crushes the SI boxing and basketball podcasts, he gives the best interviews and runs a great show. Now Beck comes in and waters things down, gets the top shelf interviews and approaches them in a very cutesy shallow manner. I love Beck as a contributor, not a work horse - particularly with interviews. I still give it 4 stars, to not throw shame at a Mannix podcast.
*Check out his boxing pod*

Howard the wet blanket

We really needed an activist pod mid playoffs? I’m all for equality but this one couldn’t have waited until after the finals? Sorry some people would actually like to hear basketball talk during THE PLAYOFFS. Manix was awesome by himself but Howard thinks he’s holier than thou

Why does a convicted sex offender get attention? What about his victims?
