Talks about the Celtics and the “cwippers” in between boogie nights takes

Mostly fake wokeness and liberal pandering by a middle aged man who has an obsession with pop culture

I’ve been following Bill Simmons consistently since The Grantland days. Although I do miss his writing, sometimes he reads his old blog posts or columns and I get this sense of nostalgia when I am reminded his great ability to play with words. The podcast is outstanding, Bill releases high...Read full review »

Bill is incredibly knowledgeable and insightful. He does a good job of selecting interesting guests and then asks thoughtful questions that elicit great information. The only negative is when he works with Ryen Russillo. Ryen is a windbag who drones on and on and obviously loves the sound of his...Read full review »

I know there have been quarrels with the lack of diversity at the Ringer, but let’s give Bill some credit for the guests he’s had on to educate his audience and give him some time to build a socially conscious company.
Merchwell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/20
Listened to Bill for a long time but I’m no longer listening. BS worked hard for what he created and developed 2 great companies. But he habitually cowered to the woke writers on his staff who preferred to write about SJW politics than sports. He thought if he kept virtue signaling to his...Read full review »

Ryen rusillo is useless. Says nothing while saying thousands of words. Unsubscribed now that he's actively destroying the quality of the ringer podcasts. Also, this is not open mic night.Read full review »

Been a fan since ‘06...you were at the forefront along with a few others of making several NBA franchises truly responsible for their GM’s behavior. I’ll never forget it.
Eee Em Bee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/20
Would be 5 stars if he didn’t inevitably always end up talking about random Pats games from 12 years ago, and Ryan Russillo is on too often and he’s just the dumbest person. So, 3 stars.
Palchez via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/20
Please give this five stars the content he makes is amazing and fun to listen to. Even when bill drops and f bomb in the middle of his podcast it could still give teens a bigger perspective on sports.

Yay
I enjoy most episodes.

Don’t understand what people like about this
Mama31012 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/20
Top to bottom fantastic content. Absolutely love your basketball content, specifically the redraftables. But your current issues and modern culture pods are great too. Thank you podfather!
Jgibs7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/20
Don’t waste your time.
DUKEDOG0636 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/20
F the haters Bill, you aren’t wrong - it’s why you went from being a writer to owning the Ringer. Haters just gotta hate cos it’s on trend. It’s absolute bull what they are trying to pin on you. Says me - a young left wing POC from a working class family
Adschan6 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/30/20
It gets pretty tiring listen to Bill Simmons talk honestly. You can tell he thinks every idea he has is genius and feels like he’s bestowing his God giving gift on us when he’s actually wrong most of the time and his opinions are just those a low key racist Bostonian. This dude definitely has a...Read full review »

Good luck
apple23642346 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/20
Simmons is aintellectual in his approach to basketball. Decent old-school narrative look at basketball but it can’t compare to podcasts like Dunc’d On or Thinking Basketball.
Kvasekbw via Apple Podcasts · Poland · 06/29/20
Unreal content thank you Bill Simmons 🙏🏽
Nurirosen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/20
It’s one thing to offer escapism amidst uncertainties and turbulence. It’s much more insidious to dismiss undeniable truths at times like this. BS and his buddies are tone deaf at best and arrogant and self-congratulatory at worst. Therefore, will unsubscribe.
Bootaelicious123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/20
Another boring voice with unoriginal opinions.

Maybe you need some more open mic nights
phillies_kiiiiiid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/20
I’ve been following Bill since before he started Grantland. I watched him impressively navigate a hyper competitive industry, and build his current empire. I don’t even mind the politics talk lately, because everybody’s always talking about politics (sadly). I don’t think he’s especially...Read full review »
thgddtyvdrfvjjj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/20
Bill’s podcast suffers from his lack of research. His opinions don’t change when faced with new facts or grow with the times. He’s becoming dull and repeating the same narrative in different packages. It was once full of wonderful guests who were incredibly knowledgeable, but now it’s really just...Read full review »

I respect your grace in response to legitimate criticism of your boys’ club hiring practices. I need no more of Joe House or Cousin Sal in my life. For you to own up to related missteps really takes courage. Thank you.

No diversity all white, true shame.
dprender via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/20
I was very tired of hearing your leftwing politics on a sports podcast (yours among many others at the ringer). Now I am glad you are being cancelled by the same people you support.
matrykid24 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/20
I would guess the majority of your listeners are down with you and Russillo. Don’t listen to the loud minority on Twitter.

The New York Times took something you said out of context??
billyAwildMan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/20
When they make this podcast at night, is it then “Open Mic Night”? I’m here all week.
deValkenstein via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/20
It’s not funny, informative, entertaining, or smart but it holds my interest on my commute enough not to allow me the coherence to fixate on my job and accelerate into a telephone pole. (Also, would a young Bill Simmons listen time anything on The Ringer? This crap is all mainstream weak...Read full review »

I am a lifelong Democrat but understand that the left when it goes to extremes in its self-righteosness is as dangerous as when the right goes to extremes with its authoritarian instincts We all have violated "woke" rules and made cringe worthy comments. Anyone who hasn't isn't...Read full review »

Bill is clearly a good guy. The hate is pure jealously, everyone wants to take down the guy on top. Keep trying though, the real ones got you BS
RaceTo69 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/20
Cancel culture and the “woke” viewpoint never is satisfied. Billy you thought you were safe. First you get criticized cus Russillo can’t have his own opinion or point out a single fact because it’s not in lock step with media narrative . Then you have on some more diverse viewpoints and it “not...Read full review »

Russillo is an asymptomatic racist who is clueless beyond belief. He should be embarrassed. Russillo is a fool.
vertital via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/20
Please make it stop. I’m not tuning in for drive time douche bag sports takes.
psullz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/20
Ryen is unlistenable. Get him off this otherwise good pod. I have to skip his parts or stop listening altogether when he’s on. What I like about Bill: -His Celtics homerism doesn’t get in the way of sound opinions about the rest of the league -He loves basketball and has deep historic knowledge...Read full review »

Good job by you.
Maidriss via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
This isn’t up for debate. The man practically pioneered this particular platform and has done more making it the vehicle it is today than anyone else. As someone raised on real talk radio like the now defunct 106.7 WJFK Simmons does it as good if not better than any of them. Every time I come to...Read full review »

always keeps it real from a fans view
DaPoPsPoPaD via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
There are too many other good sports options to stick with the Boston style reality that ignores importance of race In sports coverage. Was a fan but no longer.
AlexTheDukie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
This is what happens when you placate the left.
lovingbbwsisnotacrime via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
What a tool - really reveals who you are - bland beige out of touch trash that enjoys filet mignon well done and probably with ketchup.
Deathofmarat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
Bill don’t listen to these insecure white kids threatening to drop the pod cause you’re calling out America’s racism & racism in sports. You’re doing great & the sports talk is still on point. Sports are a part of life not an escape from it. Wake up & challenge yourself to be apart of...Read full review »

How can you claim it is not open mic night and have someone as untalented elevated as high as he is?
simpsonsreplyguy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/20
This is the greatest Sports pod of all time. Bill and Ryen keep doing your thing. 2 GOATs.
