Whether you are commuting to work, getting some stuff done around the house, or just looking to pass the time, a quality sports podcast can be just the trick. Be wary though, as there are now thousands of options to choose from. To help solve this dilemma, here is a list of the 20 best sports podcasts to stream right now.
To plenty of people, this could be a podcast that climbs higher on the list. Just for me personally, I’ve yet to fall in love with the podcast the same way others have.
But the popularity is undeniable. Will Compton and Taylor Lewan have created quite a fun environment together. Like plenty of the other shows on this list, I would encourage you to check out their video format on Youtube to get the full feel.
You can listen to Bussin’ With The Boys, here:
When Draymond Green first said that he would be hosting a podcast, I think there was a collective roll of eyes from NBA fans. At the time, we didn’t realize just how insightful Green can be. Since that announcement, he has flourished behind the mic on his podcast and in front of the camera on NBA on TNT.
You would think with the most popular sport in the world, soccer would have a strong grasp on the podcast game. But I don’t actually find that to be the case. Part of this could be because there are so many different leagues, that the attention is spread more thin. But if I was to look at a single podcast in the sport – I’d suggest taking a listen to ESPN FC’s podcast.
Dan and the boys have become legends in the sports radio game. I mean, they did *it*. They pulled off what every single friend group has dreamed of doing.
Ryan Clark’s work in his post-playing career is oftentimes overlooked, in my opinion. Clark has remained adaptable, coachable, and eager to bring his voice and energy to the best fit that he sees. He’s really a model figure in the sports content world for retired athletes.
If you are a *degenerate* gambler, you will love this show. It is that simple. Nick Kostos is an electric factory. His rants have become legendary (may I point you in the direction of the stoned college student playing Madden).
Jomboy Media’s dominance in the baseball world really should not be downplayed. And the podcast, Talkin’ Baseball, is a very good place to start. This is in any discussion surrounding the best places to consume MLB content.
Once Joe Rogan’s podcast hit another stratosphere of popularity a few years ago, he decided to split up the MMA or combat sports guests into a different section called JRE’s MMA Show. For fans of the fight game, it is the biggest voice to be heard.
There is a common denominator amongst a lot of these podcasts featuring former players… Most of them were not all that well liked during their playing days.
Between Brandon Marshall, Pacman Jones, and Lesean McCoy… this is a wild crew.
This is a good podcast. Which is saying something because, at times, I can find JJ Reddick to be a pinch of a know-it-all. But I can’t even front – he brings it on this podcast. It is full of great stories and incredibly insightful NBA information from the perspective of players.
This podcast has a special feeling about it for one very specific reason.
Now, I may not know a ton about hockey. But damn, these are some funny ass guys.
ESPN nailed it with 30 for 30. It is some of the best sports storytelling I’ve experienced. And their podcast is no different.
Man, I have so much respect for Rich Eisen. He has delivered top-tier sports talk radio for so long, and still keeps his show fresh. I appreciate how his show will veer off of sports for a big guest, but at his core, he is a sports junky.
If you don’t respect this man’s craft – then you don’t get the industry.
I consider Ryen to be the gold standard in sports talk. He’s a little more dialed back compared to a Pardon My Take or Pat McAafee. However, Ryen’s desire to discuss the nitty gritty details of players and games is remarkably enjoyable.
There is no one funnier on this list than Big Cat and PFT. These two are world-class comedians. The kicker is that they are genuine, everyday, over the top, sports fanatics.
He is called The Podfather for a reason. From the beginning of podcasting, there was Bill Simmons. And like many people on this list, not everyone is going to love his show. But to deny what Simmons has done in podcasting would be negligent.
At this point, he is inevitable. Pat is the biggest and best name in the game. There are some obvious reasons as to why like his infectious energy, remarkable storytelling, and his genuine kindness.
