Brett has created useful content that draws listeners in and keep them jovial. This show is a natural extension of his personality and is must follow for anyone who has a love for the game of hockey.
Breath of fresh air
A welcome counterpart to other great shows like Spittin’ Chiclets and Barstool, etc. not a condemnation or indictment of those other shows because they are great too, but this is a welcome difference and a needed change.
This show is geared toward folks who truly love and appreciate this game, and I think that shines through brilliantly in the host’s questions and style.
As a younger fan of the game, I truly appreciate the ability to hear the untold stories, often from the players themselves.
The host is magnificently skilled at getting folks to open up and share wonderful aspects of hockey history without drowning you in his opinions.
If you are a hockey fan, or even a sports fan, definitely give this show a like and a subscribe.
Great podcast well done great questions and preparation love hearing old school hockey talk
