not as good as Puck Soup but still solid

Big Wyshynski fan that was introduced to Emily Caplan through following his work..these two are very informative, super smart, very articulate, but it’s not as interesting as Puck Soup because they tend to agree on almost everything so there’s rarely a spirited/heated discussion on anything. Maybe that’s not the vibe they want but as a podcast I’d probably find that more interesting. Still a top hockey podcast, but Puck Soup remains top gun to this fan.

Informative, entertaining, hockey - what more could you want?

Look forward to this podcast every week - Emily and Greg share the info I want to hear and are fun to listen to at the same time, and the guest interviews share some different insider perspectives.

I do shamefully admit to chanting along to “Phil Kessler loves hot dogs!” every week though. My neighbors must think I’m a little weird by now...
