Smart hockey talk

So you two obviously know your stuff. And you show your personalities which is great. But sometimes the talk leads into too much “trash talking”. I feel with your knowledge a little more of a professional or mature way of talking about things you think are wrong would be better listening.

Can’t Say Enough Good About the Podcast

I just wanted to hop on and quickly rate the podcast. I normally listen on Spotify but I couldn’t leave a comment.
This podcast has been such a big part of my life during my university years. I really struggled with my mental health and honestly hearing you two even talk about it has been instrumental in me making the brave step to get help (I have been able to relate to you both sooo much). So thank you a million times over.
I’ve been a listener since the Ian Tulloch days (still love ya Mike) so I’m a die hard Rachel fan lol. I worked for Home Events with my university’s athletics department and LITERALLY prayed that I might get to meet ya at a York U hockey game when you guys were in town (to thank you in person). I wore the OG major league socks and everything lol.
Anyways, thank you both so much for all that this podcast is. I’m so happy that you guys are finally getting the recognition that this podcast has deserved for a while! Cheers
PS- I’m sorry Rachel but CR7 is the GOAT🤣
