Amazing Writers and Content

The Athletic is fantastic for sports writing and being able to read from best writers across the country for one price is worth it, alone. The podcasts are also fantastic. I know they’ll carry that over as they expand to more teams. The only downside is the podcast player, itself. It has quite a few bugs (i.e. when I pause from my headphones or the lock screen, it often starts over upon hitting play). They’re constantly updating the app so I’m sure this will eventually be fixed but it’s an issue right now. Can’t recommend The Athletic, enough, for any sports fan.

Came For Derek Bodner, Stayed For The Greatest Sports Coverage Available

I had originally been a patron of Derek Bodner’s on Patreon and was happy to pay for what I saw as the best Sixers’ coverage available, while supporting Derek directly. Once Derek made the jump to The Athletic, I naturally followed suit. As a subscriber to The Athletic from the beginning, I’m ecstatic to see more and more top-notch journalists added to its roster. This isn’t your typical sports coverage. These writers are the best of the best and go more in-depth, covering things I want to know about and not the same rehashed points over and over. If you are a casual sports fan, and the local paper will suffice, but if you are a fanatic of any sports team, The Athletic is for you.

Latest update

Ruined iPad ‘my feed’ by inserting all the podcasts on the left side. No option to construct a personal view.

Love it!

I’m a sports fanatic. I have a deep obsession with sports. With The Athletic, you get all the best content and articles. You stay plugged in with the latest news, get in-depth analysis of all your favorite athletes and teams, and most importantly you can interact with fans who are just as passionate as you are about sports. And the dialogue is all positive and respectful. It’s like being part of an elite fraternity of sports fans. Worth every penny.

Worth the subscription

For so long I’ve been running into stories that I REALLY wanted to read about—not the more typically shallow news articles—only to see that they were always behind the Athletic paywall. I finally got the subscription and it has been well worth it.

Is an absolute legend. I love all of her articles more than she loves White Claw.

Mostly good, but...

Please allow the users to view stories in chronological order again, the current setup of new, old, new, old etc is not user friendly. Finally, a feature I’d like to see if the ability to create a playlist of multiple podcast shows like you can do in the Apple Podcast app.
