Great listen for any hockey fan

Emily and Linda know their stuff, and are really starting to find their groove working together on this pod. I always look forward to this pod and I am stoked to have caught this since the beginning, and hope it goes on for years!

Honestly Emily…

Honestly Emily, I’ve enjoyed your work going back to the NFL podcast with Bert Breer and then with the Puck Daddy, but if I’m being honest, to be perfectly honest, honestly, I’m kinda getting tired of listening to you say “honest” on the podcast because frankly it makes me think that you’ve been lying to me the rest of the time 😀.
