To demonstrate how great Jimmy and this podcast is, he took all the anti-wrestling “it is scripted” feedback and booked a wrestling writer on the show. I hate wrestling but gotta respect the next level, genius move (maybe a slight troll job) on his part. This podcast is always a must listen! Best...Read full review »

Hey Rube! If you want to live the suburban high life without getting eaten alive by mosquitoes there’s a simple solution. Go on Amazon and order three bottles of Off Deep Woods liquid spray in the green plastic bottle (aerosol is a disaster). Spray up and down all four sides of your legs and both...Read full review »

Love this podcast. Enjoyed the segment with Alan Sepinwall, although I’m surprised that The Old Man on F/X HULU didn’t get mentioned. And about The Captain: I’m indifferent and not a Jeter hater or lover. But I found it interesting that his response to Nomar was “that’s what losers say…the best...Read full review »

Love how Jimmy works in both sports media and the overall entertainment world. He and his guests successfully blend the two really well. Keep up the great guests, Jimmy!

I’ve from New Zealand but enjoy the podcast every week. I enjoy the wrestling interviews and I like Jimmy’s chat with Meltzer a couple of weeks ago. As a big Yankee fan, I enjoy Jimmy’s New York slant. Keep up the good work, as a sports journalist in New Zealand, I continue to enjoy the...Read full review »

Congratulations on the milestone and enjoy the show, but … There was nothing to talk about this week? Oh Vin Scully died but let’s talk about the Sopranos actor who died for the second or third straight week. I get get it Vin wasn’t in New York and you don’t want to bump your weekly Sopranos...Read full review »

If you’re into a host interviewing as a true sports journalist then this is the pod for you. Great guests and I learn a ton through relaxed conversation. I’m a football guy and Jimmy makes the non-football months tolerable! Can’t wait for kickoff! Happy 400th and here’s to many more. Kevin...Read full review »

As an avid weekly listener to the show, I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in entertaining banter with sports personalities. Topics include new sports shows, wwe, sports media personalities, and Jimmy’s obsessions with Al Michaels and Chris Russo. Keep up the good work....Read full review »

Love the podcast and the eclectic group of guests. Sal complaining about his family is hilarious. You should have Sal’s wife on to return the favor.
Lee Eskin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/22
Great job once again. Always interesting. On a side note, just spent 3.5 weeks in Greece/Croatia. Saw 1 Royals hat, about 25 Dodgers hats, and well over 2000 Yankees hats. No others. Most were worn by non-Americans. I guess they come to the US on vacation and the hats look good to them. Yankees...Read full review »

Congrats to Jimmy Traina on getting the SI Media Podcast to Episode No. 400. I respect how much passion he’s put into the audio space. This podcast means a lot to him. Now, when you are done listening to an episode and reading this, please head over to the Sports Media Podcast with Richard...Read full review »

On 7/14, Jimmy read a review from Frank from Chicago. I couldn’t write it any better than Frank, so I will just leave it at that! 5 stars
Tapped out fan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/22
I have listened to the show for a long time and always look forward to a new episode . Good guests, great inside information and even humor thrown in. I’m not a prude by any stretch of the imagination, but what’s up the recent increase in bad language. The f-bombs you dropped on the Erin Andrews...Read full review »
Larry in Ohio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/22
Let’s start what’s wrong with the podcast. I’m giving this podcast 5 stars because I’m going to trust that Jimmy will come to his senses cut back on the wrestling talk. Kids, you may want to fast forward this portion of the podcast about 10 seconds, but just like Santa, wrestling isn’t real....Read full review »
Astolli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/22
If you like sports media, pop culture, learning and laughing, you will like this podcast. Jimmy gets relevant guests from the sports media world and sprinkles in sone funny anecdotes, gambling references, Seinfeld, Howard Stern and the list goes on. His random observations and tales are usually...Read full review »
Spider1361 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/22
Love this podcast — hits all the major topics in sports (& when worth it, news) media. My favorite part of sports illustrated from over the years & translates great to the podcast format. As a displaced Long Islander, appreciate the NY spin on some of the discussion also. If I can,...Read full review »
adam pod connoisseur via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/22
Excellent conversations on sports culture/media, and the guests have been 🔥 lately. If you’re interested in this subject, the right people will appear on this show. Like many, I have no interest in wrestling, but that’s almost an inside joke at this point, and clever to have the Sal segment on at...Read full review »
MikefromUVM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/22
I’ve been listening to this podcast since before day one (Richard Deitsch days) and I can personally attest to the progress that Jimmy Traina has made. Jimmy used to be so awkward and he’s gotten so silky and smooth. Guests are timely And relevant. Not to mention I agree with Jimmys politics and...Read full review »
Reprint Autograph Collector via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/22
This podcast is appointment listening for me. The guests are outstanding and I find the world of sports media to be fascinating. This is a 5-star podcast. And, I believe my rating should carry some extra weight, as I am one who finds Jimmy’s politics to be disgusting and cringe-worthy. Despite...Read full review »
fsczjgecbeev via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/22
I just finished listening to the May 5 episode with Katie Nolan. Another excellent episode. Jimmy always entertains, is knowledgeable and keeps it interesting. I have been a listener since he took over for Deitsch. However, I must say that some of the whining should stop. Your take on too many...Read full review »
PhilFromLongIsland via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/22
Good lord man, like just shut up and let the guest talk for more than a few seconds. There’s no need to interrupt to interject a needless detail, every other sentence. The constant herky, jerky natured interviews are unbearable. If you’re going to interrupt at least have something interesting or...Read full review »

Always love listening to Ryan talk Hoops. He is awesome. Fantastic Pod, as always.
David from Eastwood via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/22
This is a great podcast to listen to if you’re a nerd like myself when it comes to sports media. If it is talent leaving networks for another or a new streaming deal, I want all the information I can get on it and Jimmy does a great job with the interviews. When it comes to comedy, do all of us...Read full review »
MairOfPominville via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/22
I had to download ITunes just to leave a review after hearing Jimmy say "The Dinner Party" was his favorite Seinfeld episode.  Five stars for being the only other person I've ever heard say that.  Do you also agree that similar to The Office after Steve Carell leaves, Seinfeld...Read full review »
Eric from Connecticut via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/22
I’ve been listening for a few years now and Jimmy is the angry east coast uncle I never knew I needed. His takes are spot on and I enjoy the guests he brings on. Sal has been a great addition as well.
Djdsquared503 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/22
Jimmy is definitely part on my weekly podcast listening rotation with great takes on sports media and interviews with the various talking heads. For some reason, the 4/29 pod had some technical difficulties and it sounds like Ryen Russillo is interviewing Jimmy on the phone. But even with that,...Read full review »

Call me a homer, because I am, but Jon Miller and Joe Morgan doing the GGW promo would be incredible - “adios parole!” let alone Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow doing it - “wow who would have known that we’d be telling a guy who was successful in the 2000’s to Grab Some Pine Meat.” Also mad dog...Read full review »

Jimmy’s lack of research and inane logic about Calvin Ridley’s suspension is too much. Bye!
joe97404 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/22
Not sure why, but Jimmy manages to get his guests, even ppl like Aikman who through a lifetime as a QB and announcers are well trained in saying nothing when they speak to actually sounds like humans in his interviews & gets actual answers out of them not corporate speak, it’s a real skill...Read full review »

Can’t stand him and will do whatever I need to do to avoid him. He’s the worst.
Lolo13419 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/22
This podcast abjectly disregards the existence and contributions of women in sports and sports media. The show notes of almost every episode could very easily be “man talks to man about men who play/cover sports.” It is as retrograde and narrow-minded a conception of a sports media podcast as it...Read full review »

I hate jimmy’s interview skills and traina thoughts Is a complete waste to time
Willwdj via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/15/22
Jimmy gets great guests and even makes the WWE interesting for this non-wrestling fan. Jimmy has a natural ability to make his interviews interesting and asks the questions on my mind too. Stick around for the end because Traina Thoughts with Sal is worth it. Jimmy and Sal are the two East Coast...Read full review »

Write crappy review but give 5 stars. Mission accomplished. Keep up the crappy work. Sal is a STAR.
j-savvy83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/22
Jimmy has worked on his stammering and butting in. Not sure if this was a conscious move or not, but love it. I didn't know that I cared so much about Sports Media until I stumbled upon this pod a long time ago. Jimmy has gotten better and better each week at interviewing and ALWAYS has great...Read full review »

Great podcast if you are interested in the media side of sports. Love the guests! Got a lot of great info out of Aikman.
Hothgghhvvhjbvbh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/22
I first got introduced to Jimmy when he was a guest on this podcast feed when it was hosted by Richard Dietsch. Honestly, my first impression wasn’t great as he always seemed to have contrarian takes just for the sake of having them and to be a foil in Richard’s side. When Richard left SI and...Read full review »
Guy2318 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/22
Jimmy seems like a very nice person. I just don’t get the focus on the importance of National broadcasters. I have never once heard someone say they watched an event, or not, because of the broadcasters. Never.
Charlie3gc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/22
Always enjoy the podcast. Jimmy does a good job with the interviews and seems to always get great guests. I enjoy the Traina Thoughts segments with Sal, especially the Calvin Ridley discussion and agree 100% with Jimmy. It wasn’t a big deal. Now, if you’ll unblock me on Twitter I promise not to...Read full review »
Bigmike579 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/22
Always great and interesting conversations on this podcast. A little bit of everything from inside baseball of broadcasting to old school talk show bits during traina thoughts.
