Critic Reviews

Score: 4.5

Patrick Carter • Podcast Rex Mar 21, 2024

"The danger of these big, professionally fronted shows is that you risk never hearing anything radical or new, with too much at stake for the well-practised presenters to ever go out on a limb and give anything other than the broadly accepted consensus. To its credit, The Sports Agents hasn’t shied away from that risk, and its hosts have done a decent job of putting personality on display when it counts."

"The Sports Agents is highly enjoyable, though I have a couple of little structural niggles, chiefly that the show preamble is too long and unscripted.

Straight from the off she challenged D’Souza’s woolly statistics, told him “don’t patronise me” when he told her she was old-fashioned, and held him very strongly to account. Ooh, I loved her getting cross. We don’t see this side of Logan on the BBC..."

"...expect it to have the same breeziness but level of insight as its sister podcast The News Agents in a very busy sporting year ahead..."

Hannah Verdier • The Guardian Mar 7, 2024

"As familiar voices in the arena, these two have seen their fair share of Euros, Wimbledons and Olympics so they promise to bring big-name guests and analysis to the packed sporting calendar."
