Like hockey? You'll like it more and know more about it after listening to The Full 60.

Craig does a wonderful job combining his journalist's interveiw with a campfire conversation approach to get some fasinating perspectives and storys from a wide collection of people inside the game. Some the biggest names in the sport reflect on their experiences as well as some perhaps lesser known, but no less interesting names provide insight into otherwise untold but important and interesting aspects, both historic and current, of the great game of hockey. This is one time I wouldn't mind the full 60 minutes stretching into overtime, or dare I say, a shootout.
