Insightful and fun

Great coverage of Red Wings play, development and of course it’s down sides . This podcast has opened my eyes to the new players coming into the draft . Great so see a Focus on Will Smith as he clearly has a Bright future !
Living in Scotland means that this podcast is invaluable!

A must of Red wings fans and some golfers

I came across the podcast one night when I could not sleep and have not missed an episode since , it’s an excellent podcast for in touch fans as well as lapsed fans of the team which I was due to being in the uk. This is not an Homer podcast they give honest opinions on the team and hockey in General, listen, sit back and enjoy. Lastly sign up to their Patron it worth the money at any tier

Humour, Insight and All things Wings.

As a U.K. fan of the wings since the early 90s, there is always a feeling of being dislocated from my favourite team. Brad, Ryan and Evan are enthusiastic fans that talk you through every week on how the team played, GM trades and the draft with diplomatic humour and fun. It’s non-pretentious and enjoyable stuff without the need to “dangle shout” through the episode.
If you’re a wings fan, or just want to see an alternative perspective, give these guys a listen.
