Great!

Easily my favorite sports pod. Despite the Yankees slander, Jonah and Matthew are great.

weirdly good

I thought this would be a podcast that analyzed politics and sports, but it’s more of a podcast about sports that happens to speak to a left audience. And thank god, it’s a lot more enjoyable like that. Matthew and Jonah have great chemistry, and bring on a ranging mix of well-chosen guests. Even the Spartacus outro is growing on me now.
