Sports February 8, 2022

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! For some of you, that may be Christmas, but for football fans, it’s most definitely February. With Super Bowl LVI right around the corner, we here at Podsauce are introducing you to our first-round draft picks for podcasts to listen to this Super Bowl season.

As the Cincinnati Bengals prepare to take on the Los Angeles Rams at their brand new home stadium, which now makes Super Bowl LVI the (record-breaking) second year in a row that the Super Bowl will take place at a team’s home field (last year it was hosted in Tampa Bay), we are preparing our chips, dips, and Super Bowl picks.

Check out these NFL podcasts preparing us for game day. No matter who you’re rooting for (both teams have that good ol’ underdog status as number 4 seeds in their conferences), these podcasts have got you covered.
