About Pardon My Take

When they debuted in March 2016, Dan “Big Cat” Katz and his partner PFT Commenter (a persona originally made for Twitter) couldn’t have predicted their podcast Pardon My Take would shoot to the top of iTunes. An over-the-top answer to ESPN’s debate-style shows First Take and Pardon the Interruption, the satirical podcast averaged more listeners per episode in 2017 than either of those shows averaged in viewership. Their aftershows on the Barstool Sports YouTube often draw 20K+ viewers to watch sports luminaries let loose on the air, like NFL star J.J. Watt, baseball Hall-of-Famer George Brett, and sportscaster Curt Menefee. Big Cat and PFT’s fans often can’t wait for the next hilarious hot take, which is why a combined 460K+ people follow their Twitter and Instagram feeds.
