Skipping needs to stop

Come on people, keeps skipping. Let’s go. This doesn’t happen in other podcast I listen to. Too many options to stick around and listen to skipping!

Ben and brunt are great

Fantastic show keep up the good work boys

Mr.Hurrell from Neepawa ,

Nowhere near as good as Primetime Sports

Very disappointed to see Richard Deitsch let go but I love listenting to Stephen Brunt. Glad thst Jeff Mr. Blair is gone.He was almost unlistenable!. Ben Ennis has been toned down after the first week. Not a fan; would rather hear Brunt and the guests talk. The guests aren’t quite as good as was on Primetime. And way too much hockey for me. What happened to Bob Ryan? 4 stars only because of Brunt.
