Pick and choose your sports
I'm only interested in Canucks, so jpat and botchford provide a neat look of what it's like behind the scenes to be sports media, as well as extra stories of what's going on with the Canucks. I can't speak for the other episodes on other sports as I don't listen to them.
Love the content. Unlike so many other Canucks podcasts, these guys are intelligent, calm and considered. But on the last pod, the levels were so low, it was impossible to hear in the car even with my system at max. This pod would be 5 stars if only they paid a passing concern to production values.
Break out your white towel
Chapman, Willis & Johnston are the Pettersson, Hovat & Boeser of podcasts. Great insight and inside scoop on the team. Real journalists talking Canucks hockey twice a week. Yes please!
