Splitting episodes

Jeff is great at what he does, and overall it’s a good show, but I wish I saw the benefit of splitting each hour into a separate episode everyday, it’s not a dealbreaker, just rather annoying.

Him again

Is Jeff Marek on again? Or still. Hard to tell, he’s omnipresent.
Good thing, too. Knows his stuff and always fun. But get ready to google some deep cuts.

Missing something

Jeff Marek is one of the best in the business when it comes to hockey broadcasting. His hockey knowledge is expansive and he’s a great storyteller.

However, there are some format issues I have with the podcast. First and foremost, I can’t understand why they split the podcast into two sections everyday. It’s a minor inconvenience to split the show but a hassle none the less.

It’s a also a little stale having Friedman on the show daily. As an avid listener of the 32 Thoughts podcast having a daily dose of Jeff and Elliott has become tiresome. The info seems redundant.

Overall it’s the best resource for daily NHL coverage so I’ll continue tuning in.
