    Simmons has to be pissed he lost the Keepin' It 1600 guys. That was his ticket to accessing a much, much larger audience. And he had it right in his hands and it got away.

    I doubt it makes much, but it provides a platform for those who write there. They can go on to the next site that will hire them for 3 years or whatever. It's a living.

    I visit The Ringer very rarely. A snapshot of the site right at this moment shows 6 posts on movies, for example, and "the top 25 NBA players of the first 25ish games."

    I mean, FFS.

    I don't think he had any choice. They made it clear they wanted, while doing the podcast, to work with various organizations to elect Democrats and just the advocacy aspect of it meant both sides didn't want the pod, going forward, to be specifically tied to a journalistic endeavor.

    I had mostly stopped listening to Simmons’ podcasts, except for his guess the lines on Monday’s. I tried to listen to one yesterday about the Steelers disfunction and it was brutal. He is incapable of going more than 3 minutes on any NFL topic without mentioning the Pats.

    I don't think the podcast works at all when Kevin Clark and Kevin O'Connor are on. And he put both of them on the same show. It was a real slog.

    I have about 12 hours of podcast content I digest per day while working my jobs and that was a really, really slow couple of hours.
