THE Seattle NHL podcast
Solid podcast that’s getting better every week. Good coverage of the entire league and of course everything Seattle. Doesn’t try to be anything more than what it is - just some dudes taking hockey.
PS Laine doesn’t get to 65. Injuries.
Thanks guys. Happy to be an early adopter.
An All-Star Podcast
I work in the city and have roughly an hour drive home. My favorite commutes are the ones where John, Andy, and Darren join me for the ride. Their recap of the week’s hockey news is informative, entertaining, and sometimes even educational (which is greatly appreciated by fans like me who still feel they have much to learn about the sport). I love the “Weekly 1-Timers” (whhuupsshhh!), “Goalie Gear Corner”, and especially the “Get Off My Lawn” segments. If you want one of the truly great sports podcasts, look no further than Sound of Hockey!
