Best friends from another state

I have loved the Hurricanes since the 2002 cup run. And since I now live in another state for the last decade, these guys are like my best friends who talk about all things hurricanes. I love the interviews and the sound board is funny, but wish it had more drops. Keep up the good work guys.

CanesCast 5 Star! If you ain’t first your last!

Hey mike and mike this is Chris from down at the beach. Just got done listening to episodes 1-131 in succession and it’s official. This is the best podcast I have ever listened to. Keep up the great work. Stay safe, drink storm brew, and GO CANES. 🥅🏒👍🏻

I work for the Canes in operations, and every once in a while I walk by Mike or Michael heading to press conference (or the filming of this podcast). After games, Mike will actually talk to you in the tunnel like he’s known you for life.
Great podcast, even better people.
Five stars.
Best friends❤️
