Been listening to the pod for a while, especially when driving. His last pod was a reach out that makes this deserving of 5 stars. Keep going old man.

I can’t comment on the Hollywood updates or golf coverage aspects of this show, but the NBA coverage would probably be better if Bill had watched more than like 4 NBA games in the past 3 years. #toomanyscreeners #philaunite

I listen to every one of these podcasts, it’s a great mix of sports and pop culture plus great interviews and loveable returning characters

Been listening for years. Getting better and better.

Russillo has been a great addition. Great chemistry with Bill.

Andrew from Utah: This is personally a sad question to ask — but where should Donovan Mitchell look to after his time in Utah? Where would be the most fun place to see him play?

And I’m not into the NBA at all. However, I’d download and listen to this Sunday night GOT recap a thousand times over.

Greatest Sports Podcast out there

Besides the ocean of saliva accumulating in Bill’s back throat area as the show goes, it’s the best pod on the webs

you absolutely cannot listen to a single word that comes out of his mouth about anything boston or philadelphia related whether good or bad. he is just clueless

Bad
Petulant man child airs noncontroversial opinions to various cronies. I hate listen.
Gfarwell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/19
Have stugotz often and I’ll listen more.

Best guest.

He cannot see beyond his Celtic fandom and have a rational take on the Lakers. It’s just reeks of media trying to use they’re voices to influence players, instead of media speaking to fans about teams.

Please get the Russillo ones out on Tues before my drive to work. The current schedule doesn't work for me. Thanks. Morgan

Thank you Bill for making this work. First comment but have listened for a long time.

Please stop having your kids on your podcast. It’s not “adorable”

Ryan and Bill are arguably the best one two punch in sports radio. Hard hitting topics where nobody holds back, with subtle laugh out loud humour and insight into elite basketball. Highly recommended. Liem Dao from Australia

Skipper interview was phenomenal

Only good part is the weekly NBA pod w Russillo. Mostly cuz it’s the only all NBA pod that Simmons does.
NBAaddict via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/19
I only listen to the Cousin Sal podcasts during the NFL season and even those were hard to get through this year. Everytime i listen to any other episodes i want to rip my ears off within 5 minutes. Things I don’t want to hear: Bill talking to total tools (Russillo, Rapaport, Joe House) who are...Read full review »

Been reading Simmons for years now and his podcast is just as good, particularly during football season with Cousin Sal
RedSoxFan2003 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/19
Clear your throat for Christ’s sake! Have some hot tea on hand. Bill constantly sounds like he’s got globs of phlegm in his throat and just keeps talking no matter how gross it sounds. Disgusting. And more and more, this is just a Celtics homer taking cheap shots at the Lakers and Knicks. Awful...Read full review »

Swear to god BS is obsessed with Bron. Dude reaches for slander for any star except Greek who he oddly compares to prime Shaq. Pod is my guilty pleasure bc his basketball talk can be so cringeworthy and I love saying to myself “what the hell are you talking about.”
keel252 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/19
I think bill at his best with either thoughtful people like Chuck klosterman, Malcolm gladwell, Nathan Hubbard, sports repodders, or his hilarious friends the cuz, jacko, and HOUSE!
Wileyv via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/02/19
Used to always love bill’s pod even though he says dumb things a lot. Recently though he’s become wholly unlikable and smug. There’s no wit to it it’s just become pretentious. Bill’s not smart enough to be that pretentious

This podcast, is not great. Uninformed basketball writer (?) speaks about (mostly Celtics) basketball. Occasional good guest joins the show and gets asked bad questions. But first! Pearls Jams worst song in their catalogue

U guys are great !!! Favorite listen every week. Hope u continue through the summer

Loving the Def Jam pod with Simmons and Russillo!
Gritffreh via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/27/19
Bill Simmons covers sports, pop culture, even some parenting and who knows what else. In his years of experience writing, TV/Radio stuff and generally being a media/sports guy, Simmons absolutely has seen it all and he brings it to the pod with great aplomb! Love the NBA focus and the fair and...Read full review »

Number 1 listen for me each week. This show does a great job of mixing up guests and introducing you to new topics or characters you never knew would care about while at the same time delivering the standard Sports Guy humor and angles you came for to begin with. Great work.
cjcase3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/19
I have listened to Simmons for many years and have always dreaded the Boston talk. It is the second worst part of the pod to you talking to you dad about anything. The last bit that gets old quickly is bringing in random Ringer staffers to give insight and opinions on random subject matters. Not...Read full review »

Long time listener of Bill and enjoy him with Ryan . What I like most about Bill , despite his expanded roles and variety of interests , first and foremost he is a fan! Love the father son relationship he has with his Dad . I can relate as I have two sons and am closer in age to Dr. Bill. The...Read full review »

I went from being a basketball fan to being a basketball fan and a bill simmons ringer fan. Amazing personality and insights , frequent episodes, star studded guest appearances.

Quite good
james-100 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/22/19
These two additions to The Podfather’s cast have made it feel fresh and it’s f’in amazing. Kyle’s laugh seems surgically placed while being incredibly genuine and Russillo finally seems unleashed! Gym stories, Boston accents (more please), and his realistic tales. He is the one guest who will...Read full review »

Bill? Is Zion named after the famed city in the Matrix or After Lauren Hill's song "To Zion"?
HazeyEyez via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/19
I love listening to many of the Ringer family of podcasts but Bill and Ryen Rusillo continually giggling over middle school jokes about which NBA player can have sex with the whole bar and the “groupie game” is beneath this level of company/journalism. If you know better, you should do better to...Read full review »

This podcast is amazing. Bill is spectacular at what he does- asking guests brilliant questions and engaging in real discussions about life and sports. My only knock is that Bill complains too much about player empowerment and modern day athletes. Please stop with the complaining, Bill. You sound...Read full review »

Good afternoon Bill, I love the cast particularly how you structure the conversation overall. It is one of the things I have most admired about you as a listener. However, I don’t always agree with your opinions as is inevitable. I took issue with a couple of your takes from Monday’s cast. I have...Read full review »
davep1119 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/19
No that’s it. Bill is struggling with the gurglies recently and it’s Stugotz-level hard to listen to. Great pod!
Rodneyven via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/19
Tell Bill to clear his throat more often. The flem in the throat is bad.
BS Pod via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/19
We get your point on the whole PE/Zion discussion (where does it end). You’ve made the same argument so many times it’s boring. Other than that, great pods

Bill has fallen off far and fast
