Some of the stories are good, but often I find myself skipping through other segments where the cast has tangentially connected sports to some narrative they want to share. I do like that they generally cover feel-good stories and shy away from spending much time on controversies, which are covered to ad nauseam by other outlets. Worth subscribing to as long as you are okay sorting out the stories you want to really hear.
