The episode with Jason Kirk is fantastic, perhaps the only thing that could have been better would be to add more sandwich talk.

Sometimes almost too much sports talk.

I could have gone without the Covid discussion at the beginning of this most recent episode. We need to move on with our lives:

Would give this pod 10 stars. So fun, entertaining, and knowledgeable. Drew and Roth’s chemistry is off the charts. Only to be ruined by Producer Guy’s constant interrupting. Thank god for the skip button. So, only 5 stars. Added bonus, there’s sandwich talk!

Love the show. Please don’t let your producer talk. Breaks the mood!

A funny, absurdist take on sports, sandwiches, and other nonsense. Well worth the limited mental space it occupies. The less Producer Eric I hear the better.

Keep up the great work Drew and Roth! I swear I’ll pay for a Defector subscription one day!

we’re all waiting with bated breath for the next installment of Let’s Remember Some Sandwiches with Roth

They should call it “wearamaskcast.” Virtue signal cast

The podcast is great. I’ll change this to 5 stars if drew stops screaming WERE BACK WERE BACK at the start.

A fun podcast. Just guys being dudes.
Andrex0r via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/23
Yay
I always enjoy when Lauren T is on the pod 👍🏻
NESwain via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/23
Love these guys, and honestly love most of the guests they have on too.
The Real Chris B via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/23
The only thing the pod needs is more Roth impressions of anyone and everyone.
Podtrick69420 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/23
Roth and Drew consistently hit the sweet spot of hilarious/grumpy/insightful. The only podcast I listen to every episode without being several weeks behind.
seamus howls via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/23
Lots of fun
jarrodsawers via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/03/23
Look if Roth doesn’t have this outlet though which he can Remember Some Mets he’s just gonna accost random strangers in the street about Timo Perez. That’s not what you want.
Fake Mark via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/23
One of the few podcasts I listen to religiously
Rox_Shox via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/23
Must listen
Olaf Jorgenson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/23
Have loved listening to Drew and Roth for years now - highly recommend it! Needs more sandwich talk though please
Distraction Fan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/28/23
After placing bets on Bareback Sports Book as advertised on the podcast, I became a degenrate sports gambling winner. I was finally able to win my wife back after I showed up to her boyfriend's house on a snow machine wearing the pelt of a grizzly bear and with a full tub of Drew's Chili...Read full review »

Can’t get enough.
Eghufffghj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/23
These guys still think being loud and obnoxious is enough to be entertaining. Same as in their Deadspin days.
Casnh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/23
Sandwich talk? Trenchant Funbag insight? The occasional Roth DelCo and/or Macho Man accent? The Original Guy Remembering? It’s all gold, baby. If your chud brain is so poisoned by ‘stool miasma that you go out of your way to dislike this, you have my pity.
Mighty_Thor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/23
Always a great listen for when I’m driving or just need some light-hearted fare
maczhier via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/23
I have made a dozen, if not dozens, of dollars betting w bareback sports
schmoolevin19 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/23
Was great when it was the Deadcast & remains so as the Distraction. A huge thumbs up from me.
AitchyS via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/25/23
Because I was instructed to do so last episode!
JNRCX37 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/23
If you don’t like something, just don’t listen to it. You don’t need to be a jerk about it. For me, The Distraction gets five stars. I enjoy it. That said, get some cheap headsets to send to your guests so they don’t sound like they’re in the bottom of a well!
NC_N8 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/23
A shaggy, hangout kinda show about sports and other bulls***.
TheLegendOfBagO'Donuts via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/23
My favorite podcast about Maine, sandwiches, and sports!
Brusdar Graterol via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/23
I have no idea why but it’s the perfect thing to listen to while I walk the dogs. My dogs and I would be in better shape if they did more episodes.
HippRebel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/23
Each week’s episode of the Distraction is a highlight of my week. I appreciate the mix of sports and non-sports chat, and honestly that’s kind of the appeal here. Pure sports talk is boring and it should always be considered in the context of what else is going on. More importantly, I PERSONALLY...Read full review »

The show is a three, pleasantly banal. Writer owned media is thebomb.com though. Please don’t stick to sports
ns alex via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/22/23
The best part is the sandwiches.
Almendelsohn via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/22/23
This is my most important source of news for sandwiches and a critical font of Maine-related information. Sometimes they work in a little sports talk, too. But seriously, these wonderful oaves have been making my life better for the better part of a decade. They make me miss my neurotic East...Read full review »

Loved this show from way back at the other site even. Puh-leeeze stick to whatever this is, sports and not sports. Worth a listen, not like anything else.
Ben Wahhh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/23
Screw that one 4 star review. Great podcast, love sandwich talk
jumbo jimbo 112 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/23
Love the show. Bring back the mashup!
G lockwoo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/23
defector forever
Grungeinator via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/23
I don’t watch sports but this is one of the few podcasts I listen to every week on the day it comes out. Been with it ever since the Deadcast days, glad it survived the jump to Defector. Also happy they’ve done away with most the bits (sorry Drew).
mowat42 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/23
Drew and Roth bring you high level sports conversations and interesting guests
