He’s honest

Dakich is well known here in Indy, and I’ve never been overly inclined to listen to him, but I listened to the Painter interview and really enjoyed it. Dakich deserves props for saying what he thinks, especially when it’s the unpopular view (I.e. players are babied nowadays). Also, whoever monitors this podcast might want to look into the 10 or so 1 Star reviews that all happened on July 25th last year.

Delusional wannabe Skip Bayless

Has hot takes that don’t make sense and can’t be backed up. Better spend your time on a multitude of podcasts that don’t have this guy spouting nonsense.

One of best shows in the country. Neither left or right. Dakich show only one I’ve ever listened too has dialogue with each caller. Every other talk show will allow caller express their opinion. Host will hang up. Give their opinion. Dakich allows caller respond to his comments. Guests on his show amazing. You don’t see espn, fox have coaches open up like they do on Dakich show. Wish Austin sports talk were 1% of the Dakich show.
