    The Bill Simmons Podcast (and all future endeavours)

    Bill Simmons aka The Sports Guy

    A great US sports personality whose heart lies with the Celtics, Patriots and all things Boston.

    Just wanted a thread to help follow his rise back up the American sports media landscape.

    History: After openly criticising Roger Goodell's handling of the Ray Rice and the Deflate-gate issues, his contract wasn't renewed by ESPN. Disney's loss was HBO's gain. Now Simmons will be producing a regular TV show that will air in the American spring, as well as working heavily in the network's sports documentary department.

    Below is the BS podcast segment where he called Goodall a liar (at 4:30 in), and challenges ESPN for a please explain (7:00 in). This was the podcast that lead to his suspension from ESPN/Grantland airwaves:



    His new podcast is already about 50 episodes old, and can be found here:

    Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/the-bill-simmons-podcast

    It's also available on itunes and YouTube.

    Episode 23 with Michael Rappaprt was amazing. Here are two highlights:

    ('Latvian Gangbanger,' 7 minutes in):



    A conversation about Leo DiCaprio's prowess, leads to an amazing exchange about Burgess Meredith. The whole conversation is amazing:

    This was a well done fan farewell video following Simmons' axing and the shut down of Grantland. There's a stack of inside jokes:

    Love Simmons, him and Bill Burr are the 2 dudes I listen to every week. Malcolm Gladwell was in this week, should be a decent listen.

    I would love Simmons anyway, but that he's a Pats fan makes me enjoy his podcasts so much more.

    His Pats love annoyed me a bit. Actually quite bias when talking about them.

    This.

    Don't even know which commentator Simms is but his hate of Simms' love of the Sheriff is one of my favourite parts.

    I do really miss the Grantland NFL Podcast though. They talked a lot more about football in depth, actually quite enjoyed them talking about a bunch of offensive linesman I'd never heard of for 20 minutes at a time.

    The MMQB Podcast | The MMQB with Peter King

    Robert Mays is with MMQB these days (prob my fav football site) Podcast is pretty decent, lacks the chemistry of Grantland but it's good football discussion.

    Bogut was a great podcast interviewee.

    Had a 'don't-give-a-fuck' level of honesty, that gave you a glimpse into Warriors/NBA behind the scenes stuff, without giving away team secrets.

    Recent podcasts with Michael Rapaport and Chris Sacca have been mint.

    Can't wait to see Any Given Wednesday.

    Pretty much listen to all the podcasts from his network. Love it.

    I have a massive pet hate of people who believe in 'fate' and are superstitious. That's one thing that really pisses me off about him.

    Checking in on this one, still the only podcast I listen to regularly - great for those half hour drives to and from work.

    Great way to keep up to date with all things NBA/NFL, obviously with a Boston-focus.

    Been some great pods over the last 6-12 months, some of my faves:

    Kevin Durrant
    Steve Kerr
    Jimmy Buttler
    Jake Gyllenhaal
    Eric Garcetti (Mayor of LA, pod after LA secured the 2028 Olympics)
    Andy Samberg
    Bryan Cranston
    'Parent Corner' with Cousin Sal has been a highlight of late

    Some of the best things about the Ringer stuff is just the personalities of the guys and the banter between them. I'd say that may turn some people off, but with I'm a big fan.

    I listen to the betting podcast 'Against All Odds' which Cousin Sal runs and that is pretty much 90% banter and random chat and I love it.

    Some of the ones you mention above annoy me a bit because I find Bill sucks up a bit to certain guys.
