We’re Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, Sean "Down Goes Brown" McIndoe of The Athletic and Ryan Lambert of Yahoo Sports and this is a hockey podcast, in the sense that we talk about hockey, both on the ice and about fan culture. That’s the “puck.” This is also a podcast about movies, TV, fast food, life lessons and general idiocy. That’s the “soup.” Unless you ordered the minestrone.

Great hockey podcast - Only downside comes from the Health IQ spots reminding me just how much of an awful, greasy, poor nutrition life I’ve led thus far.
Why is someone always typing? 😖
The hockey talk is really good & entertaining, but I do wish whatever article someone is tapping away during recording could wait until after the pod is recorded, it’s just not great to hear if you suffer from misaphonia!
Very annoying presentation. The guy who promotes The Athletic isn’t bad, but the others are embarrassing. If you’re going to be using bad language throughout, at least be funny. Laughing at your own jokes doesn’t make them funny. The way they bad mouth the players...these are “professional” journalists, I guarantee they wouldn’t say any of these things to players faces. Cringeworthy podcast.
