Surpassing his achievement of humanizing Lord Deitsch and his patrician manner, Jimmy Traina has gone one better by transforming Sal Licata from SNY screecher to a thoughtful engaging affable chap.

Jimmy is a great host who can make any conversation interesting. Elite lineup of guests, electric content, one of the best in the game

Jimmy will never watch Saving Private Ryan, Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, The Deer Hunter, Born on the Fourth of July, Hurt Locker, Thank You For Your Service, Glory, and Casualties of War. In all seriousness, it’s a fantastic pod.

Jimmy, can you please tell us what happened to Richard Deitsch at the Fan 590/Sportsnet? They fired several people there last week but no “official” word on Richard but apparently he is off the air. The Sal Licata session is fantastic! Keep up the great work!

. When are you getting Follow the Money hosts on from VSIN. Stephen A. Interview was excellent Maybe you would like Saving Ryan’s Privates. Porn version. Luis Mt Pleasant, Iowa.

Loved the Stephen A interview, new side of him talking about taking accountability and what’s on him. Would have loved to hear you push him a bit harder on some of his ‘untouchable’ comments. Keep up the great work!

A weekly must listen. Recent guests have highlighted Jimmy’s interviewing skills! Love the current events with Sal. One simple request : put time stamps on different segments so I can skip ahead to Traina Thoughts
Schlakeandbake via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/21
A great listen that I look forward to weekly! Big fan of Andrew Marchand and as a big Joe Buck fan, love listening to him. Looking forward to listening to Stephen A Smith on my commute today. Weekly thoughts with Sal has been a great addition too. I’m a big pardon my take fan and my favorite...Read full review »
BlakeKoepka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/21
I really do enjoy pretty much everything about this podcast: the guests, the content, the banter, etc. However, Jimmy seems to embrace every opportunity possible to remind people what he thinks of every political/social issue, which is a huge turnoff. I don’t listen to a sports media podcast to...Read full review »
Brett Nehls via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/21
Really love the pod, especially the inside sports media stuff with guys like Marchand. Don’t love the wrestling stuff, but that’s the beauty of fast forward. Have become a big fan of both of you and Sal through the Traina Thoughts segment. And although the segment is like two friends hanging...Read full review »

Jimmy brings on a wide variety of guests around the world of sports media and has real conversations which are always entertaining. The more you listen the more you are drawn to Jimmy’s idiosyncrasies which would have him fit in nicely in the Seinfeld and Larry David universe. A nice companion to...Read full review »

Jimmy you have great podcast

How do you make a tissue dance? Put a little boogie in it
Jim Eimer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/24/21
I am so happy that I found this podcast. As a sports journalism student in college, I love learning from the wide variety of guest Jimmy has, from writers, radio people, TV broadcasters, so no much more. I’ve learned more by listening to this podcast that I have in some of my journalism classes....Read full review »
Alex A. Wright via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/24/21
Every episode of this show is fantastic and I love the guests! Being in the sports media business, I always love hearing from those who have made it to the top, especially the play-by-play broadcasters like Ian Eagle and Joe Buck! I also like the Traina thoughts segment but I had never heard of...Read full review »
ConnorNewc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/23/21
Sal has been a great addition. Always enjoy Ourand, James Andrew Miller and Marchand. Would love to see John Jastremski from The Ringer as a guest. And I’m not even from New York.
bbr319 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/22/21
Do you love the minutiae and shenanigans of the world of sports? Do you also hate idiots like Stephen A giving fake takes? Have I got the podcast for you. If you’re a dude born in 80s who likes sports, this pod is literally a quality hour to bro out. With a focus on NY sports and Seinfeld...Read full review »

Jimmy gets the best guests and has the best interviews. Whoever tells you to drop the wrestling guests should he arrested!
Joeybagofdonuts412 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/20/21
I love sensitive Jew side of Traina and the Thoughts segment. Can we please get Licata’s Kellerman impersonation on the next show? Keep up the great interviews and analysis 🙏.
Crf76 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/21
Best podcast moment of 2021 - when you told Deitsch on his podcast that he was taking WAY too long in asking a question. It was so true. Great mix of guests. Not a fan of WWE but that’s what the fast forward button is for. Thx
DP23345 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/21
Jimmy Trainer does a nice job with all the scheduling scenarios, you can hear great guests like Joe Buck and Tony Romo. I'm not a wresting guy, but if you are a wrestling guy lots of wresting.. I don't know the names but all the big stars. The addition or Sal Lacoter has been a...Read full review »
StvePoly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/21
Lest anybody think Jimmy is some farcical no name host, as the founder of SI’s Hot Clicks he has been a sports and pop culture maven for years (not counting when he disappeared for a while circa 2014-2015). He does an amazing interview, in that he does not overly fawn over his big name guests and...Read full review »
B.Ring23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/21
This is a pod to look forward to each week. Read Jimmy’s thought in SI to appreciate his insights. The pod contains interviews with some who wrote interesting books, and some who are fascinating personalities. Jimmy’s style is both professional and conversational. Even when he has sports...Read full review »

Jimmy! Its Tommy T from Twitter! As someone who is trying to break into the industry, I love this podcast for your insights and stories. You always have great guests that follow with spectacular conversations. One thing I really enjoy is the Traina thoughts segment with you and Sal. I know you...Read full review »
wondurland via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/21
I am writing this review solely for purposes of imploring Jimmy to keep up the string of great WWE and AEW guests on the pod. His interview of John Cena two years ago, where Jimmy was motivated to “never give up” pursuing a Rock interview, was one of the more inspiring things I’ve even heard, to...Read full review »
KennyH in Florida via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/14/21
There is no better sports media podcast out there. The guest list is incredible from Joe Buck to Roman reigns to Andrew Miller and Bill Carter, there’s always some thing for someone. And I know because my podcast, Here’s The Pitch... with Brad, is not as good, but we are getting there! I am...Read full review »
STWEEKLY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/21
Great podcast. The segment with Sal has been a good addition. But as a guy who covers sports media, you should know nobody cares about your picks but you.
cfelter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/21
Great podcast listen every week. Love the interviews and Traina thoughts. See if you can get Mike Francesa on - that would be interesting. Also, I am driving Jimmy's '89 white LeBaron convertible. And I'm never going to the mall again with Sal. We couldn't find his blue Honda in...Read full review »
MNRestrainedJubilation via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/21
I enjoy the podcast and it’s been pleasantly surprising to see the types of guests that Jimmy has on his show since I’ve been listening since Off the Board (his old podcast), where most guests were people I had never heard of. Would love to see some more hockey content though.
Trey Stofield via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/21
Love the pod, especially Jim Miller, @Sal_licata, and ESPN dysfunction talk. More Mad Dog. Less WWE nonsense. More movie talk. Less Yankees. Go Mets. Keep it up.
Larry Pig via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/09/21
Daniel in Geelong, Australia. Love the show, great interviews (could listen to Mad Dog everyday, hopefully Francesa soon). Jimmy and Sal are funny and intelligent. Question, Jimmy and Sal what are your three favourite restaurants in NY?
EliMaschio via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/09/21
Jimmy has a great sense of what everyday fans like me are thinking. And unlike many other podcast hosts, he never forgets that sports is supposed to be a) fun and b) a diversion. His best episodes are with regulars like Marchand, Ourland, Miller and even Deitsch (when Deitsch allows him to...Read full review »
Valentinearthur via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/21
I have listened to Podcast off and on for years depending on guests, but I do like the addition of Sal. Still can’t believe that Sal has never seen Pulp Fiction or the fact that Jimmy watched it but didn’t watch Reservoir Dogs. Keep up the pop culture as well as the sports. LGM
Te fe clea mineminea via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/21
I really enjoy the show as a sports media nerd myself. Don't always listen to the interview if I'm not interested in the guest but I never miss the Trainer Thoughts segment with Sal Licater. I'm still holding out hope that we can get a spot with Sour Shoes. It would be epic. Keep up...Read full review »

A. More Sopranos talk B. More anti Trump comments C. What’s up Marchand
JRich731 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/21
I’m a new subscriber and have enjoyed the episodes I’ve listened to so far-good guests and conversations. Hearing that you’ve managed to piss off Trump supporters makes it more likely I’ll keep listening, not less.
Car_One via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/21
Huge fan of Jimmy from Saskatchewan, Canada! One of my go to pods every week. Would love you to get Canadian icon Jay Onrait on the pod
goldenboy112 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/05/21
Jimmy is funny, gets great guests, and doesn’t take himself too seriously. Excellent listen. Q for Jimmy and Sal: was the Kane guy this week (9/4/21) the worst guest picker ever on Gameday? Saying he had no energy would be too kind. Great to have football and fans back though. I’ll hang up and...Read full review »
Macka3527 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/21
Yes, it’s true. I learned this the hard way when I was around 11…it’s fake! No disrespect to Roman Reigns, but I’d rather listen to ads for Roman. Huge fan of appearances by Andrew Marchand, John Ourand and Jim Miller…and of course, the new Traina Thoughts segment with Sal. more of that…Schrager,...Read full review »
Astolli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/03/21
Jimmy does some great interviews but really they are conversations. Anytime Mad Dog is on it’s a must listen. The new Traina Thoughts segment is a hit. Jimmy is New York. He sounds like a New Yorker, is in your face like a New Yorker and wears it on his sleeve like a New Yorker. Some of his...Read full review »
Steve from Buffalo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/21
Jimmy really said he won’t watch Saving Private Ryan or Jaws because they aren’t relatable, after talking about how excited he was to watch a 6’9” former NBA player have a 48-hour party in Las Vegas with Carmen Electra movie. Remarkable levels of irony here. (Been a regular listener for a couple...Read full review »
Chad W 1998 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/21
Enjoy tawdry gossip about ESPN corporate politics and NBA ratings, but think too highly of yourself to read semi-tabloid sports websites? Then this pod is for you! And I say that as a compliment. Great pod. Love Sal and Jimmy.

Love all the guests. Hate Trump and MMA. (don't like wrestling but it’s your show).Read full review »
Deep ETX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/21
Hi Jimmy, Podcast is on fire - just like your Yankees. Great guests - was awesome to have burleson on. Also Miller was great and ordered his books on snl and ESPN. Hopefully chuck is listening and will hear him in the future.
sxhxmx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/21
You’ve been on a roll with good guests and I think the new Nate Burleson episode was one of your best. More like these and less Andrew Marchand! :)
MPell13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/27/21
Jimmy T is the man. Long Island accent and attitude works very well. Good guests, good conversation, and a behind the curtain look at the media world. Could do with the WWE stuff but it’s okay, even for someone who has very little interest in that stuff. At least it’s not MMA. Anyway, great...Read full review »
