Customer Reviews

Nice podcast

Smartly done. You'll learn about the game. Worth a listen. Look forward to future episodes.

Best basketball pod out there

There are a lot of basketball podcasts out there and many great ones, but this is the best and it's not particularly close. Well-produced and written with genuine insight, Breakaway is not afraid to dive into the weeds and get at the deep tissue of the game. This is much closer to Serial than most interview-focused podcasts and it stands out above the fray. Highly recommended.

One of the best

Stands out from a crowded field of NBA podcasts for its thoughtfulness and high quality production. Same can be said for Mahoney's writing - particularly his series - The Craft. Add to the shortlist of the best content on the NBA available for your ears with The Starters and the Lowe Post.
