Update: I have never turned off a podcast so quickly as when Simmons and Matthew Berry started talking 90210. Loved hearing Bill's Dad's analysis of Game of Thrones, but my god, and let me speak for millennials everywhere, enough with the baseball talk. I listen to every episode and I almost...Read full review »

If you want some good sports content(mostly basketball) every week subscribe to The Cuz Show. I have been listening to them for a while. The podcast is on the rise. Listen now and you can say you were early on the bandwagon!

All hail the Podfather

Have been listening since the beginning and have typically enjoyed it. But this podcast is morphing into a NBA only podcast. Maybe the NBA gets clicks but count me out. Enjoy Russillo, House and Jack-O because at least with Jack-O it's MLB talk.

Matthew Berry getting my lineup ready and he’s the go to source. Really loved the 90210 talk as well, Getting the cast on would be a great podcast. Bill Simmons is my go to podcast for my morning commute. I listen to the ringer family faithfully.

So I don’t watch many sports shows on TV, but I listen to podcasts and watch games. Anyways I have always imagined that Bill was Colin Cowherd, and when I saw Bill on TV recently, I felt so betrayed! Bill is a big step down from Colin in the looks department, but I’ll take Bill when it comes to...Read full review »

I love the wide range of topics covered by Bill and the overall Ringer family. Unbelievable talent. Also, Russillo’s pod needs to be called “And Oh By the Way...”
MyNoNos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/19
Bill has become totally oblivious to everyone’s favorite sport and instead puts out Entertainment Tonight content. Super boring.

Thank you for your Sarah Silverman interview. I hate Boston sports but you are the man in every other way. Thank you!!!
SonnyLL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/19
I’ve never heard a bad podcast any time that Bill and Ryen link up! This tag team is undefeated 👍🏻
Sully12123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/12/19
These 2 hour plus pods are way too long...you could easily make em 2 parts...especially if the second hour is a celebrity type....oh and I agree on the Rubin noise...that one was hideous...but hey...these pods are usually top notch...

Like Bill Simmons pod for sports and entertainment content, but the Sarah Silverman episode was awful. Took her 10 minutes to get into her diatribe about how white men are ruining America. She’s untalented, unfunny, and extremely delusional in her liberal view. I’ll keep listening but that...Read full review »

Like BS best when guessing lines with the Cous, this last Silverman pod was great. Loved the last 5 minutes the most. Bill’s 90’s pothead days are fun to hear about, many coma allusions though, Bill - yet safer not to overglorify thc+cbd, they sell themselves well enough right? Sounds like Migos...Read full review »

I don’t leave reviews often and I love this pod so I’m gonna give it 5 stars (i love it because Simmons thinks of sports and pop culture and frames them in a way no one else can. He also is a great interviewer). But I have to comment and say that Sarah Silverman episode was really rough. I’m 26...Read full review »

Best all around podcast out there. My only question is why hasn’t the top 2 podcasters in the world, Bill Simmons and Joe Rogan, not done one together yet? Both in California, both love comedy and pop culture... give the people what they want!
the DeLeo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/19
Despite being a lifelong Yankees fan I’ve grown up with the BS podcast (and his columns) since 2010. I’ve listened and watched Bill grown from a peer who has a gift for wit and expressing his opinion in a relatable way into a seasoned, experienced interviewer who can gab with the...Read full review »

Bill is only taking to Silverman as a favor to Kimmel. She isn’t funny. She has no talent. She’s a one trick pony who says something outrageous, flashes her cleavage, and then makes a goofy laugh. Her 15 min are long over.
Norse hind via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/19
Took Silverman 8 minutes to “woo is me and the world” because of white men. I gave it a chance but it is the same basic trash you get from his super liberal culture warrior guests. Stick to movies and sports and not bringing in the race and sex baiters like Coates, Dunham and Silverman.
VRM Trey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/19
Huge pass on this episode. Don’t need to hear her complain about everything for an hour
entourage454545 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/19
I will subscribe, but I don’t know what I am going do with these “SVP & Russillo: The Return” t shirts. Thanks, Bill.
McStug via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/19
I enjoy this show on many levels. Bill has an interesting and engaging take on most sports, however I personally find his celebrity interviews often cringe inducing and a bit embarrassing.
petali via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/08/19
Best podcast when Russillo is on
NEM3SIS via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Used to love Russillo and BS but now they just complain about the NBA, it’s a turnoff! I agree with sentiment but how often do you need to talk about it?
jpriehldeal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Ryen Russilo is a nil contributor who merely repackages Bill’s points, only in a voice that is more annoyingly self regarding and bloviating. Please get rid of this guy or give him his own separate podcast to keep him off BS.
jyazer via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/07/19
The only podcast I never miss.
Dmcolley via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/07/19
I am subscribing because ryen russillo signed with the ringer. And because bill simmons is amazing.
brando-petey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Best podcast going. Bill has gotten so great at interviews, the Kara Swisher pod was awesome, made me subscribe to her pod. Just keep doin’ what you do.

I’m writing something here because I can’t submit this with just a subject.
Derrick Zev via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/19
Although I enjoy the information on these podcasts, I have come to realize that Mr. Simmons tends to interrupt his interviewee as they are trying to develop a topic, either to give his own take or history on the issue, or to go off on a tangent, losing any chance to get back onto the original...Read full review »
DoctorDaveC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/19
This was the most interesting non-sports interview you have done. Everyone is interested in tech and Kara Swisher has great insight. More non-sports interviews like this and less entertainment industry people would be appreciated.

I love this podcast. But........ that last one with Michael Ruben was pretty tough to sit through. Prob not gonna buy sports apparel anymore.
iamtheend1988 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/19
Michael Rubin may have been the worst guest on Bill’s historically great pod. An all-timer. Maybe next time he can promote Fanatics a bit more. Ugh.
mikeglat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
Love Simmons. Repeats himself on occasion, but chemistry w/ his regular guests makes the show fantastic. Genuine sportstalk, not hot takes, which I love.
HeelsInDC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
That should be the name for Beto’s travel podcast brought to you by The Ringer
Chase-not the bank via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
It has gotten too preachy and political and Bill is a little too old and conservative these days, way worse when he has Jacko on tho.
Snarky Red Head via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/19
Great Costner interview.
georgebro76 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/19
Anybody who is still really into the Hollywood scene in 2019 is either dishonest or disgusting. Bill is a celebrity with corporate sponsors. Too phony now. I'm out.
GingerBools via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/19
I love you BS, always have and will. But, why bring KOC on to your pod ever? He’s argumentative, defensive and and a know it all. I’m nonplussed that he thinks he knows more than you. Get rid of the clown.
galacticgargoyle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/19
I love your show. I love the interviews. Recent ones that got me hooked was Kevin Bacon and Kevin Costner. So anyone who doesn’t listen now is the time to start. Thanks for the great content!
superBOWLburners via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/19
Great conversation with Kevin Bacon. Way to ask great questions!! You the man!!
breckwebley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/19
Great job BS! Love the podcast and your amazing guests! The Bacon interview was EXCEPTIONAL! Amazing job leading the discussion but not over shadowing it, letting the discourse flow where it may- a skill often over looked by modern interviewers. I miss Any Given Wednesday! My girlfriend used to...Read full review »

Mike@C via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/19
Simmons is by far one of the best at steering the guest down the most fluid path of life & career journey story telling. The Kevin Bacon interview was one of the best interviews I've heard this year on any podcast. Kevin Bacon was a terrific guest. Extremely honest about his career and movie...Read full review »

I could listen to Bill talk about anything and find it entertaining. Such fantastic insight, conspiracy theories and stories that have kept me entertained for hours over the years
jdeacon0478 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/23/19
Love listening to his take on sports even when he’s being a Boston homer. Cousin Sal & Ryen Rusillo are awesome additions and usually must listens. However holding me back from giving 5 stars is the all the entertainment and non sports interviews he does. Normally I start his pods to hear his...Read full review »
