Superb

Great interviews with some of the characters from the golden era of British hockey. Brings back a lot of memories. Would love to hear interviews with Rowe, Dumas, Blaisdell in future. Keep up the good work!

Essential podcast for UK hockey fans

Brilliant podcast with a fantastic array of guests from over the years. Takes me back to my younger years as a Steelers season ticket holder who followed the club home and away. Has already had nearly all my favourite players on except my all time favourite - Steve Nemeth, any chance Ken?

Fantastic

Love listening to stories of the players from the 90’s reminds me of my childhood watching the Steelers. Listening to Ken reminds me of him selling me a Stiga Table Hockey that we had painted in Steelers and Panthers colours. Steelers always won! :)
