The previous iteration of this podcast with Kap and Gordon was solid. This new version, however, is a challenging listen. For example, nearly every time a rival team has signed a player during this off season, this group spends 45 minutes wondering aloud “why the Cubs didn’t do that deal” for...Read full review »

I hear any cubs talk podcast and this one my favorite so far. Go cubs!

I listen for another opinion on the Cubs. I like it much better when Leila isn’t on. I find her negative, self-deprecating, and with few actual helpful opinions.

Love Leila and her takes!!

Can Peter start a sentence with saying “Yeah I mean…” followed my a barrage of more “I mean”? 35 times on 10-11 cast. Then we have Nate with his constant “honestly” and “obviously”. Why am I still even listening? Painful.

Exceptionally mid takes, seems like they spend more time plugging affiliate shows than actually watching games or analyzing play. Edit: significantly less mid as of late, up to 4 stars

The intro of classic Cubs highlights never fails to give me chills. It’s all downhill from there, however. If Millennials reading advanced statistics and giving hot takes is your thing, then you’ll like this podcast. If you want actual substance from writers and others with insider access to the...Read full review »

The old hosts have a new show! Look up the Rekap! They have better takes and you don’t have to hear the same PointsBets advertisement read every single week.
Pauldabb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/23
Well, this USED to be my favorite Cubs podcast but it is now a NEGLECTED dumpster fire. Today is July 28 and the last release was July 19. We are in the heart of the baseball season approaching the trade deadline and NOTHING!!!! James, Leila and Nate thank you for absolutely abandoning this...Read full review »

Umps are sending a message to Suzuki by calling balls as strikes?!? Baseball has rules and Suzuki has a good eye. Umps do not get to send messages, that’s not part of the game. Worst comment ever.

I have listened to this podcast for many years, really enjoyed Kap and Gordon’s personalities and their views were generally well thought out and relatable to the common fan. Tim was definitely growing into a solid contributor too. Sad NBC decided to cut these guys out. Will follow them through...Read full review »

The only problem I had previously was Gordon - but that was a HUGE problem for me. May start listening again if he’s gone.

Missing Gordon Whittenmeyer. These people spend their days in a studio pontificating their hot takes and uninformed fan opinions. No insight. Not even up to date news. Their show prep is pulling opinions out of their nether regions. Save your time. Too many other worthwhile Cubs podcasts out...Read full review »

I used to look forward to this each week with Kap and Gordon and Tim. Seems boring now and they aren’t as knowledgeable nor do they seem to be die hard cubs or baseball fans. I enjoyed listening to people who have honest opinions and didn’t just tow the company line.

After Kap and crew left I really wanted to give this new team a chance, but after hearing Leila repeatedly suggest having Bellinger “slide over” to CF, I have lost all hope. Belli hasn’t played anywhere but CF. If you can’t even keep our outfielders positions straight, why am I listening?
BillyTheSnacc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/23
This was awesome with Kap and Gordon. Now, not so much. Now we get our Cub takes from a Sox fan 😂😂😂😂
pressbox wag via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/23
Leila is a Sox fan.
west wing rocks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/23
From time to time I would turn the episode off when I got tired of hearing Kap and Gordon screaming at one another or constantly ripping the Ricketts family instead of talking about something else… now I long for those days. I have struggled to listen to the episodes that have come out since the...Read full review »

Who’s That Guy + What’s Her Name + Where Are They From? = bland and boring. Cancel the pod. CHGO is now the king. #GoCubs
Byeeeeeeee for real via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/23
But no thanks. This was great the way it was and I won’t listen anymore unfortunately. Kap, Gordon and Tim were great together. Kap and Gordon had energy. This is just another marquee broadcast.
joko1981 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/23
With the recent changes to the Cast this podcast has lost me. These “Company Men/ Woman” are just boring to listen to. At least Gordon/Kap/Tim spoke their mind and truth and the opinion normally mirrored that of the fans. Listen to the Company PR people spew sunshine and roses is just boring.

Straight out of the “I can say more ridiculous things louder than you can” mold of sports talk.
cubswin326 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/22
If Gordon’s takes don’t chase you away, Kap using the mic from his apple headphones from 2017 will.
chisolming via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/22
Hard to listen to-distorted voice. Otherwise good.
glen46902 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/22
I know sometimes you run your show from Wrigley, but when sound quality is as trash as it was on Sept 9, 2022 and there was really no “content” based reason to be field reporting, just skip it. It is nearly unbearable to listen to.
cubsfan72 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/22
It’s such a shame that this podcast has felt the need to go down the route of men shouting hyperbolic, over exaggerated statements at one another as if it makes for good listening. It doesn’t. Take a leaf from the other NBC Sports podcasts and chill out a bit. Also, less of Kaplan adding...Read full review »

Why does Kap have to shout? We can hear him if he just speaks with his inside voice at a normal volume. Honestly makes it very difficult to listen to this podcast despite the great content.
jmac senior via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/22
When Gordon and Kap argue. Just keep it real, please.
holdenolive via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/22
This podcast needs to get rid of the negativity from self proclaimed Cubs expert Gordon Wittenmyer. I stopped listening in earl May 2022 I’ve had enough No wonder he was let go by the Sun Times after 13 years Time for Comcast to do the same Show him the door
dougiez via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/22
Love listening to all of your takes, however, Gordon, pretty please take off your bracelets or whatever seems to jingle every time you talk. A little distracting. However, super love your passion and straight talk.

Long time fan of Kap from WGN, to NBC, to AM 1000. Thanks for always trying to cover the Cubs from a fans perspective. You’re a true original! Started following Gordon when he popped up on mornings on the Score. Didn’t always agree with his takes, but respected his points. Initially was taken...Read full review »

A man of integrity. Takes no prisoners. Suffers no fools.

People people, it’s obvious why we got this guy, the best team=worst reporter.
ple@$€ r€@d via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/22
Just listened to Jordon Nwugo and Owen Cassie. Interesting in their journey to baseball. I would love an interview from Alfonso Rivas and all of the Cubs prospects. Go Cubs!
Blkbird63 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/22
Less Gordon. I’d like to listen to a podcast where he isn’t trying to start fights and calling Kap a liar all the time
JC Holt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/22/21
It always sounds like someone is playing with poker chips. Can’t you get some professional microphones for these professionals?
S1l5er via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/21
You have a major sponsor, and this issue has been brought up frequently in comments for a year. Get your act together.
Tonbo721 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/21
Would rate this podcast higher if Gordon would learn there’s a reason why he was born with two ears and one mouth. Kaplan and Tim bite their tongue often. Wittenmyer interrupts others too much, is louder than he needs to be and cusses unnecessarily. Enjoy reading his articles much more than...Read full review »

Why does Kaplan always sound like he’s doing this from his car while driving home?
Sir Awesomeness 699 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/21
Gordon Wittenmyer is obnoxious and detracts from this podcast. I’ll resubscribe when the man leaves. Kap is too good for this!
whos cat lover? meh. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/21
**Gordon W. complains about politics/someone’s race <drink> You can count on it as much as Heyward rolling over into a groundout.
20cubs11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/21
One word - Wittenmeyer! He’s the absolute worst. Loud, obnoxious and constantly talks over others. His hate of the ownership comes through in every episode. Kaps the best but I just can’t stomach Gordon any longer.
