Tiger/Get up

by jerzyxplorer on
Rating: ★★★★★

Give the producer who came up with the crossover a raise. This is amazing to see the different perspectives and the mutual respect people have fir each other. Molly is great interacting with Jalen on set. Mike Greeny is like a master in an old Kunfu movie at the Shaolin Temple. I love this new delivery system. jerzyxplorer

Best combo with Stephen A and Max

Rating: ★★★★☆

These two bring the best debate, can add a little more combat sports though

Steven A. just lost you a star

by Payton Wallace on
Rating: ★★★★☆

Only giving 4 stars instead of 5 because of Steven A. Smith. He said Dwayne Haskins is more of a runner instead of a passer. Ha! What a joke. He forgot that Spencer Ware and Hunter Henry we’re injured when the chargers and chiefs met up. If I was as unfocused as he has been this year I would be fired. He needs to either focus once again on his job or just go be on soap operas. It’s becoming comical.

Love the show & suggestion

Rating: ★★★★☆

Show is amazing as always, Stephen a always delivers.Suggestion: to add the specific starting time of a certain topic in the details/description of the episode

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I get you get paid for these ads but you're putting ads almost after every segment now. I'm so sick of these ads that I'm literally at work right now writing this review to say you're spamming us with ads. I can't get my information and news from my favorite people on my favorite show within 15 minutes plus STRAIGHT without ads now and it's incredibly annoying. I'm sorry. I came for Stephen A and Max's takes, NOT saving 15% or more on car insurance!

Woke Take

by Levotheconqueror on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Used to be my favorite sports debate show....it’s turned into “woke” take and Molly’s comments about Trump being racist after feeding the Clemson team fast food....the identity politics has reached a new low....I hate Trump, never will vote for the guy but to reach like that is pathetic.

Great Cast, big production/quality/streaming issues

by The Mike-C on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Great show, doesn’t skip as much these days (no pun intended..) BUT.. is often late to be uploaded, sometimes it’s just not uploaded at all. What’s up with that?? Needs more consistency on technical side.

Worst episode ever!!!

by BSGTOS on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

December 31 episode is the worst episode I have ever heard, my respect for those in the GOAT topic is gone. The fact that someone thought that these people were a good choice for that topic shows that ESPN pushes the narrative to make James the Goat, how sad.

Tobacco product advertising!?

by realoregonian on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Why does a sports program advertise for tobacco products? Great podcast content, but always disappointed with the advertising choice they make in regards to tobacco.

Cari Champion is better!!!

by Tis G 10 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I don’t like molly she supposed to be a moderator not a debater! Always jumping in and interrupting Max and Sas and also having slick remarks at the end of every segment.... The show would be better without her

I love First Take

Best podcast out love StephenA,Max is a great debater and the beautiful Molly doesn’t get pain enough to moderate haha ..Keep up the great work !!!👍🏾👍🏾

Love listening, hate when waiting for podcast to post!

Huge fan of First Take, but only this podcast takes forever to post on the app. Must get better at getting this podcast out after this show for some of us who can’t watch at work but can listen.

Love the show .Always gives me a few good laughs every episode. Been listening for like 3 years now and it gets better and better. The cultural topics are hilarious . And jalen rose stays on point with his “inside” information .

Great show

I love the show, there's not many great sports podcasts. Other than MVP News which is also on iTunes, I haven't found many until I found this one

Stick to sports

by ducks wintheday on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I used to like this show, but I can no longer take it anymore. Would be nice if they LEFT politics out of their show. Stick to sports. That’s why FS1 is better.

Could Only Handle Like Five Minutes

by texas_tyrant8 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

The hyped up drama queen and faux outrage act, while great for television, just doesn’t migrate well to the podcast platform where I would think listeners prefer a more moderated and thoughtful discussion with genuine analysis.

Great show

by Paul ruuuu on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Ryan Hollins always manages to ruin a great show. His points are rarely cogent

No sas

by joserenteria30 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Have no idea why Sas was not on here a week ago when they had the show on Espn instead they decided to give other people and try to pass it off as first take I unsubscribed as soon as I noticed

Fix the delay

by Chris95822 on
Rating: ★★★★☆

I really like this podcast but the format does not work well with a delay issues. Maybe because it is live on TV when recorded but it is hard at times to listen because of the delay.

Stephen a Smith

by Aye Yo Foe on
Rating: ★★★★★

Hands down the best sports show in the world. Can we have more special guests please. Hollywood stars that know sports

Pointless narcissistic blather

by Tahoemac61 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Really hoped this would improve once Bayliss departed. Instead they dialed it up louder. Just seems like click-bait, headline seeking trash w/o any real content. Steven A seems relatively intelligible when he wants to be but whether it’s his narcissism or the producer, his delivery & content is more grandiose than informative. The other guy is nearly as absurd as Bayliss.

Fools & Podcast issues

by JustMy23Cents on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

The more I listen to the idiots, the more annoyed I get. These dudes are absolute garbage. Never listening again.&Often times this podcast is uploaded poorly and doesn't work OR its a duplicate show or a completely different show. Poor editing and producing. Who ever takes care of the podcasts for ESPN, needs to be fired.

Tech issues

by Saucy_E on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Love the show itself but the podcast has all sorts of technical issues such as the audio doubling or muting at times making some portion of episodes inaudible. Also the shows work far better if segmented into one show per day rather than hours 1 and 2 as the playback feature plays them in inverse order and I have to constantly open my phone and redo the hassle of picking the specific episode.

Steven A Hater Smith

by TP jr on
Rating: ★★★★☆

Love the show love you guys together Molly, Steven, Max. Great insight but when it comes to LeBron Steven A seems to talk out both sides of his mouth only to kick LeBron every chance he gets and I’m a Lakers fan wow !

The LeBron podcast

by Kent State Flash on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

If you want to hear everything and anything LeBron James then this is the podcast for you. How can they talk about this guy ad nauseam day after day after day. I can’t take it anymore

Same Take

by Esemjay456 on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Max is great! Good insight, smart guy. The show is just entirely too repetitive. Golden State, Lebron, and now the Rockets, I get it. After the NBA playoffs it’ll be the Cowboys, OBJ and Aaron Rodgers for 9 months. They’re too good to repeat themselves EVERYDAY. PS SA is so rude to Molly.

All that is wrong with the world

by Robert Henry Holtz on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Show is horrible, just two idiots yelling at each other. Sheesh.

Biased as always

by gblankley on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

The positives: when it comes to debates on NFL topics and even baseball I think the content is amazing with great points being made about a huge array of topics through out. The Kellerman vs Smith is a very entertaining and logical rivalry.The negatives: absolutely NO MENTION of the NHL ever !! How can one of the major sports have 0 coverage on this show. My biggest pet peeve about first take and ESPN as a whole. Is how much they talk about Lebron. I'm so glad I have the podcast so I can skip the butt kissing that ESPN does on him. He is talked about every day and it's flat out obnoxious. I speak for many people on this.


by TheHerdIsBetter on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Max went from boxing expert to expert in anything political! His addition to this show RUINED THE SHOW! Another reason why ESPN has devolved into liberal trash! They are the new MTV! Once loved but ruined by their own stupidity

Terrible format, terrible content, just terrible

by Harvey Floorbanger on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Worst format possible in entertainment! The only thing FT has going for it is Stephen A Smith & usually a pretty lady moderating ridiculous, over the top, & awful “debates”, which usually devolve into full on yelling matches.

Max has to go.

by Ihop23947 on

Max is unlistenable. Two hours of him is impossible.

I love the pod but the separation of the individual podcast is not my favorite though.

Screaming over each other

by Bigmurrrr17 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

What a joke. If you want to hear 2 uneducated idiots screaming over each other for 45 minutes, give it a listen to. Oh my god give it a break and let each other talk.

Why would u split one show into two Separate pods

by Shockey136 on
Rating: ★★★★★

What was wrong with one Podcast playing the whole show now this stupid play hour one add hour two to the play next it’s minor issue to a great pod but extremely unnecessary

Change ain’t always good

by creolenda9 on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Ever since Skip left, Stephen has grown to be really rude and disrespectful. Always interrupting, screaming at people. For him to refer to his resume in the past, this has nothing to do with your resume or pedigree. This has mutual respect for another human being. Stephen, you need to tone it down.

Go to Fox Stephen A

by Yinzer6687 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Your only one worth hearing, did Max ever cover sports as journalist, or play sports, or ever do a push up in his life?

Great but the bugs....

by Simbalic on
Rating: ★★★★☆

Love that this is a podcast. Even better that once the show is over this podcast is uploaded (usually) right after. I’m not sure if it’s just me but listening sometimes it skips back and forth. Also on commercial breaks the sound will go from both speakers to just the left or the right.
