One of the best podcasts around.
Now I may be a bit biased as a newer canes fan. But this is one of the better podcasts I’ve listened to! I look forward every week to their episodes release and wish I could listen to them more!
Really entertaining and informative
I’m a biased Canes fan but as one I’m glad we have this to look forward to every week. Michael and Mike ( or is it Mike and Michael?) have great chemistry, a thorough understanding of the sport and the team, and manage to perfectly balance information and humor. It’s the fastest 90 minute podcast out there - if you are a Canes fan. If you are a hockey fan you should check it out.
I love the podcast. I like Mike and Michael. I detest the sound drops.
It would be one thing if they used the drops sparingly, but they use the same ones multiple times throughout the show. And when they find a new drop... oi vey...they wear it out instantly. Other than the sound drops, the show is always a great listen. Always.
