Not what you think.
This podcast isn't just football talk it’s soo much more. The host have great chemistry and are very entertaining. Found this podcast from Rob and Akiva Need A Podcast (a must listen). Try this podcast. I suggest the episode of Keev trying to explain the WWE and Royal Rumble. Good work guys. Keep it up!!!
Would be 5 Stars.....
This is a great podcast, they can make any random subject worth listening to and I would give it 5 stars even though:
- they have huge cultural blindspots especially with anything non-American
- they wouldn’t know a hot take if it smoothed a silk sheet for them
The reason for the 1 star is they need to sort the audio out. Some of the mic issues and pop filter issues are such an easy fix that they need to devote only 1% of their energy to audio quality and then spend the other 99% making their lists and other trivial content such as a bracket of team mascots and which would win an MMA tournament.
If you like Ratings Lists, this is for you!
Akiva and Alexander breakdown anything from the top Cereals to ranking all the Team Nicknames from the major sports leagues. Their ramblings are oddly interesting and great to listen to while stuck in your commute.
Oh, they also talk football (sometimes).
