Very intriguing stories

Fantastic production quality. Original sounds and clips from past events, interviews and the story telling - it’s like a movie every time I listen to it. Absolute 5 on 5!

Until they made it political. It’s like the way I miss sportscenter. Come back home bud, please

I really enjoy these podcasts, but it seems like they are an afterthought. Few and far between mean you lose listeners. No consistency to putting them out. I understand the docs are the focus but if you’re going to do something half assed, why bother???

Really enjoyed the first episode of season 8, but wondering why they haven’t released any more episodes

These are meticulously-constructed stories that place sporting events and athletes in the larger context of history. Each of these lovingly-presented stories is a movie begging to be made.

My friends call me the podcast cast king because I listen to so many different podcast all the time. But far and away the 30 For 30 series of podcasts are the best things going. Your superior storytelling,Mixing sports and history, and production, put these podcasts in a class of their own. Thank...Read full review »

This is the most self-absorbed episode of all time. You are aware you have international subscribers? COVID 19 has affected the whole world, not just your little isolated corner. Poor, very poor!!!

How do you tell the story of Rudy Gobert getting covid with zero mention of him mocking covid and touching all the microphones? That was the talk of the day when he got it. Zero mention of it? That can’t be an accident you left that part out. Very weird.
David1083 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/23/20
...but this is one of the best investigative podcasts I’ve come across. The topics they choose consistently surprise me (in the best way) by veering away from the mainstream/overdone sports, and I find myself getting invested in things I’ve never thought or cared much about (poker, gymnastics,...Read full review »

Great series for Bloodlines. Very engaging and very well done.

Music in the background often enhances a podcast, but when you have to strain to hear the talking it isn’t worth the effort.
Booker WEB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/20
Excellent... absolutely excellent... very informative as well as compelling... again excellent

There seems to be a lot more activism rather than journalism in this podcast now. Loosing interest.
JSV211NQ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/20
These podcasts are always well done and interesting only complaint is that the seasons are fairly spaced out
Tikoshak via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/20
I am confused. Started to like podcast but it starts and revolves around santa Anita... but you NEVER discuss track...drugs...compare other tracks and data.... it’s crazy, nothing scientific. Like saying people are obese because they don’t except while omitting eating and nutrition. This...Read full review »

I don’t understand how a production of this quality could have allowed the composer to get paid for such an imbecile, minimalist, pathetic imitation of a score. WAS there a composer? Or did some intern purchase Garage Band for the iPhone and record it that way? Let’s emphasize that the intern was...Read full review »

I’ve enjoyed every episode I’ve listened to. As a Padres fan I particularly enjoyed “Ricky Don’t Quit” and, even though I have zero interest in Yoga I was captivated by the season on Bikram. Please change the theme music. It is a shrill, annoying and ugly attempt at a fanfare. It missed its...Read full review »

Very interesting podcast
Tptptptptptp via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/20
The James Scott segment is a fair tribute to a man of great talent, and a comment in the lost talent that gets locked up. An important documentary on the need for prison reform, and an invitation to society to look at how we fail ourselves in so many ways. End prison for profit now. There...Read full review »

This deep dive into the Karolyis, USA Gymnastics and the numerous gymnasts impacted by the rigorous pathway to Olympic Gold is superb if not heart wrenching to absorb. I only wish this was a video podcast or had been done for TV because there are so many visual moments and gymnastics performances...Read full review »

It has a little bout of language but other than that great podcasts
n5u7ooqw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/20
Left my original review below. Happy to have a docu-style show back! I live documentary-style audio. I don’t like listening to commentary about a TV show. Right now the only reason o don’t unsubscribe is the hope it will go back to the old format. From a strategic standpoint connecting the audio...Read full review »

nashdawg18 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/20
Is the gold for a few worth the price of so many? This is about the culture of valuing only the winners. But the winners won’t say that out loud. Instead, they create myths and propaganda to fuel that rare win and deny the voice and value of so many broken others. I loved this podcasts because it...Read full review »

Highly recommend especially for any sports fan who watches the Olympics or anyone who followed the Larry Nassar sexual abuse case.

So happy to have a real season of 30 for 30 back and not the recaps. This was another in-depth, engrossing, well reported story.
Nerdalert111 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/20
Enjoy the episodes and the mini series that go even deeper are fantastic!
Milner-c via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/20
Painful story, painstakingly told. Well reported, with one exception that jumped out at me: What responsibility does the NBC gymnastics team—the network and the commentators—take for making millions while these girls suffered? Listening to all seven episodes reminded me of the outsized role NBC...Read full review »

30 for 30 nails it with their latest podcast series about the complicated legacy of USA gymnastics, “Heavy Medals.” Listeners will learn about and grapple with what was going on behind the scenes of all the incredible Olympic moments of the last 30 years. Very entertaining and informative!
gus the bus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/20
Story was missing huge parts- Diane Durham, for instance. Bad omission. Also, the public messaging at the end of every single episode was overkill. Big time.
Emojita via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/20
Excellent reporting. The gymnasts past, present, and future deserve all of their truths be told..and the adults who let them down held responsible.
July J. Johnson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/20
Reporting done right and the human emotions conveyed on this podcast is transparent. Heavy Metals podcast made me go through the gamut of emotions. Elation. Sadness. Defeat. Betrayal. The erosion of trust was palpable with each gymnast speaking. Women are the strongest people I know. But it is...Read full review »

Finally back to an awesome podcast. The last series was horrible, deleted most episodes as soon as they appeared.

Finally back to normal formatting with engaging sports stories. Thank you for bringing Jody back!
KimRach via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/20
Clear enough? Screaming, annoying commentary. Jalen Rose is terrible!
RI-LIGHTHOUSE via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/20
The episodes can be hit and miss but when theirs a good episode, it’s unreal! The series on Donald Sterling are hard to beat.
dgmvc via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/11/20
I miss the old format. Five stars for Jody and the compelling stories from last seasons. I can’t give this season more than a two. Four stars now as an optimistic gesture towards future seasons returning to the way it was.
HeLLo...M via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/20
Can’t stand listening to Jalen. Thought I was a fan. Stop yelling in the background and maybe bring a conversation to the table.
Laurenvivi123456 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/20
The quality really doesn’t compare to Jody. Will not be listening to this until that format returns
0for30 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/20
Not a 4+ Star podcast anymore. I just don’t find Jalen & Jacoby as great storytellers or interviewers. After all - 30 for 30 is about telling an amazing story that’s engaging. J & J are more like “sports guys” that are color commentating a 30 for 30 - with their obscure sports knowledge....Read full review »
Miatasm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
Not a fan of Jalen and Jacoby talking about the 30 for 30. I hope they go back to the old format of the documentary style podcast. Not listening until it’s returned to its former podcast style.
PB805 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
The early seasons with Jody Avirgan are absolutely terrific. Really first rate reporting and storytelling, some of them I’ve gone back and listened to a second or even third time. The last couple of series are two guys named Jalen and Jacoby who are frequently quite obnoxious, discussing TV...Read full review »

I am not interested in ESPN talk radio. I loved the audio documentaries of seasons past.

I love when Jody does the 30 for 30, jalen is so annoying and throws in so much noise......pleeeeaaaase no more jalen....I don’t even want to listen
Phil_sal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/20
This show was great during its first six seasons. The Jalen and Jacoby show is worthless and should stand on its own so it doesn’t excite me when there’s a “new episode” on 30 for 30. Please stop diluting the brand with this worthless back and forth banter and get back to investigative and...Read full review »
