Smart, Satisfying, and Informative

If you find Bar Stool Sports to be light on the sports and heavy on the stool, check out this thoughtful, rational, and informed Mets podcast from Ted Berg and Tim Britton.

Britton covers the Mets intelligently for The Atlantic. Berg brings the questions to the beat reporter, and tests his opinions against Britton’s knowledge. The result is an entertaining and informative pod that covers ground not trod by the screamers and whiners who populate lots of sports podcasts.

These two intelligent hosts do take diversions, but they’re by and large interesting and enjoyable ones, and the bulk of the program is spent trying to tease out information that doesn’t show up in the daily papers. Well worth a listen.

Good show, bad art

Enjoying the show. Please change the artwork. It’s very hard to read, has poor color contrast, and reminds me of the hideous black jerseys. Thanks!

A standout among all the Mets podcasts

Bringing in Ted to host was a great move- he and Tim pair up perfectly! A must listen for Mets fans.
