Great pod, especially love the balance Russillo brings as the voice of reason on many topics, plus hearing you all laugh together (especially when you can hear nephew Kyle in the background) is infectious!

Bill and Ryan great to listen to while getting the Slop Top
Nickrod1712 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/19
Only giving 4/5 for Ryen. Otherwise 1/5. Bill has lost his fastball- needs to prepare more diligently and quit with all the inside jokes. Pretend like you are just coming up and have to earn your rep

I’m not even a Lakers fan but the negative bias against them is unreal. You’ve spent the entire year talking about how bad the Lakers are which I agree with, but after the AD trade you’re saying they gave up too much. And while the Lakers management has been bad, there’s no talk about how much...Read full review »

Everything outside of the cousin sal pods are littered with Bill’s endless exposition of terrible sports takes.
Drich843 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/19
Cousin Sal är det enda roliga med denna podcast.

Not keeping pace with media landscape, fallen off

Bill has been one of the fathers of sports podcasting and I really like his style. Has good guests, humour and analysis while keeping it fun regardless of whether you agree with his takes. Brings fans 100s of hours of entertainment all for free - thank you from England!

Bill and Ryen is as good as it gets. Love the Joe House episodes too.
AleksKunarac via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/15/19
The standard in sports pods. Simmons makes it seem so easy. And it surely ain’t. And love chemistry with Russillo. Favorite duo (the Cuz close second).

Always loved his writing, wittiness, and sense of humor in all things NBA, NFL, and his burgeoning soccer talk. Pop culture and politics as well. I despise Boston, he certainly isn’t a fan of my teams, but I love his stuff anyways. He’s completely entertaining.
Lapsansky via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
Can I please get an Amen on the Ryen Russillo SUPER DL Phish reference? Sometimes we don’t know greatness until it’s staring us in the face.

All hail the podfather

The Pre-Process 2011-12 76ers lost in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals with a core of Andre Iguodala, Jrue Holliday, Lou Williams, Thaddeus Young and a young Nikola Vucevic. Would they have been better off not blowing it up and letting that team gel for 7 years? It seems crazy...Read full review »

This podcast blows. Why would anybody listen to this garbage?
SI for Kids via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
Listen, this is the podcast of all podcasts. Every episode should be, at minimum, 2 hours. Keep it going, William. We love you.
YoungInstagram via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
Bill is so out of touch with everything that it’s hard to listen too. Rest of the ringer is awesome but bill is completely up his own rear it’s hard to make out what he’s saying. Please don’t ruin the rest of the shows bill

sad
I've been listening to Bill Simmons for years. I love him and the pod. He's entertaining and loves basketball, but the fact that there is zero respect for Toronto really hurts. When other teams have played the Warriors there is equal respect - Bucks, Rockets, even the damn 76ers. But the lack of...Read full review »

I love the podcast, and have been listening for almost two years now. I’ve always just tried to let the blatant laker hate go (also we’ve been so bad the last 5 years that it’s warranted). Recently though, it’s been really bad. And it’s like annoying, tired, forced, and getting old quickly. I...Read full review »

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Ruiz interview! Down to earth, want nothing but the best for him.
Shroyman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
as a kid from australia who didn’t know much about nba, listening to this podcast on the way to school is the best way to start the day. love the russillo pods and with house!
billybranagan via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/10/19
Has provided me many good times and good drives to my girlfriends, home, and to work. Thank you.
cdsuibsuvdu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
I enjoy listening to Bill’s perspective on the NBA and pop culture. I love the chats with House and Russillo...keep it up guys! - Long time listener and diehard Laker fan
Carlos in Seattle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/19
He has become a total talking head whatever sounds popular that's fan boys take. First the Warriors will lose to Houston, then the warriors will win against the raptors, than the series is over after the 4th game. at least HOUSE doesn't pretend to be smart. To bad you can't give negative stars!
mrb55OR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/19
I’m subscribed to about 40 different podcasts and none get me as excited when a new one comes as the BS podcast . Always has great guests and even the recurring regulars like house,cousin sal, Jacko, Dr.Bill, Russillo and co are all great. A must listen if your a sports and pop culture fan.
Hrantik via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/19
Bill and ryen are the best sports duo in a pod form. Also can’t believe all the Joe house hate. When he is on the pod it is comedy.
athom41 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/08/19
Great podcast, great basketball mind and writer! But i still do not understand how he could slot Steve Nash higher than Iverson in his(great) book. For this atrocity I can only give this pod 4*
johnycola69 via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 06/08/19
Love that guy!
Yabboe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/19
Can we a segment for A Year In The Life of Ryen Rusillo? Can Bill just throw out a random year, like 2002, and have Uncle Ryan give a rundown of the highs and lows?
Shooper9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
Meh
Rusillo or whatever his name is makes it unbearable always makes me tune to an alt podcast bill himself is just OKAY typical fanboy
Molly 94836182 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
Simmons is definitely the Pod Father, he is best in the podcast business. I especially appreciate how he makes other guys better. For example Joe House is awesome with Simmons but the Joe House golf and food podcasts are awful. Also Chris Vernon and KOC are great with Simmons but when the get...Read full review »

Salty salty takes. Boston sucks, quit yapping about them. They’re not winning anytime soon.

Best sports/ pop culture podcast out there, Bill is a boss. I can’t thank you enough for all the free entertainment at work!
BearGriff61 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/19
Bill live with it, Boston aint winning an NBA title anytime soon

That’s BS. House is great!

House is the worst. He likes Trump

More House. More JackO. More Sal. No more Rusillo.
JRich731 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/19
It’s simple. Even though I’m not from Boston I’ve been reading and listen to Simmons since he wrote on page 2 for ESPN. I look forward to every episode, and the Ringer Podcast network is great!

Bill is daddy
isthisgayuhhhhh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/19
Joe House has ZERO basketball knowledge. It’s embarrassing and a bit disappointing you think he might. I like you Bill and I like your podcast as long as Joe House is not on it. Please don’t include him in basketball talk.
HouseStinksWithBasketball via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/03/19
No mention at all of plummeting NBA ratings yet wouldn’t stop mentioning headwinds for the NFL a couple years ago. Thankfully he still has Cousin Sal. Lombardi was smart to bail on this NBA-hole.
Mcconn23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/19
I love listening to Bill and Ryan, However.... without Kyle’s “ Unscripted Snickering” it would not be quite so enjoyable. (Keep doing you Kyle)
goboston via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/03/19
Have subscribed to Simmons’s pods for over a decade- and I immediately delete any episode with Joe House. Dude is a total idiot but hey, lots of mouths to feed.
myronws via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/19
Gasses himself up by making guests talk to him about his son.
TheDoctorIsILL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/19
The Mike R podcast is instant classic. Something Mike & Mike would NEVER do. Bill is getting hammered about tough questions within a wild card guest and still steers the ship. I would do anything for 15 beers with the two of them on a Sunday afternoon in Vegas.

Sometimes the pod is mailed in which is okay because of how much content they pump. Every episode won’t be a hit considering the high amount of pods released. Bill has many great guests with good stories from the entertainment and sports place. Now, some of the non-entertainers who are...Read full review »
