As the owner of a fantasy sports startup, I need to stay on top of the games and the industry, but it’s hard to know what’s worth my time with so many sports podcasts out there.
After listening to dozens of shows, I’ve narrowed down the list to the 8 best sports podcasts you need to add to your rotation.
Here’s what I came up with:
Pardon My Take
On “Pardon My Take,” Big Cat & PFT Commenter deliver the loudest and most correct sports takes in the history of the spoken word. Daily topics, guests, and an inability to tell what the hosts might be doing will make this your new favorite sports talk show. This is a podcast that will without a doubt change your life for the better- guaranteed, or your money back. *Pretend a reggaeton air horn is going off right now* PMT.
