We’re Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, Sean "Down Goes Brown" McIndoe of The Athletic and Ryan Lambert of Yahoo Sports and this is a hockey podcast, in the sense that we talk about hockey, both on the ice and about fan culture. That’s the “puck.” This is also a podcast about movies, TV, fast food, life lessons and general idiocy. That’s the “soup.” Unless you ordered the minestrone.
Eichel Fallout + Playoff Preview
The boys discuss Jack Eichel's shocking press conference and his future with the Sabres; the Rangers firing their president, GM and coach; the Coyotes looking for a new coach; a partial playoff preview of the matchups we know about; the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame class; and an overrated/underrated on summer blockbusters! Sponsored by Brooklinen and Mack Weldon.
The boys discuss the Tom Wilson incident and the aftermath, in which two of them yell at each other and one of them approaches it rationally. Plus, the Sabres transcend wins and losses, their underdog goalie, McDavid chases 100 points, the playoff races, a great convo about the top 20 sitcoms of all-time and an overrated/underrated/fav/least fav on non-movie Star Wars things. Sponsored by Raycon
Farewell, NHL on NBC
The boys discuss the NHL joining Turner Sports, the end of NBC's run as a rights-holder and the whole "Charles Barkley of Hockey" thing. Plus, a debate about what the NHL needs to become to attract new fans; Connor McDavid's MVP mastery; the remaining playoff races in the season; "Mortal Kombat" and "Godzilla vs. Kong"; and another few brilliant rounds of "Name Pat Falloon!" Presented by Sunday and Violent Gentlemen!
Mr. Hockey vs. Mr. Softee
The boys cover the Patrick Marleau games record, and discuss his Hall of Fame case, and five other records that could be broken. Plus, the best athletes we saw as prospects, Canucks start rally, Boston and Taylor Hall, playoff bubble teams we want in, NHL drops ball on statement, Super League is dead, whether Gisele bets on Tom Brady and a new game show that tests your knowledge of offensive stars. Sponsored by Brooklinen and Sunday!
Every NHL Trade, Reviewed
The boys welcome the great Rachel Doerrie to the podcast to break down every NHL trade deadline move, including the Taylor Hall and Anthony Mantha deals. Then, it's one of the best overrated/underrated's in Puck Soup history: The McDonald's menu. Sponsored by Manly Bands and Manscaped.
Our Favorite Villains
The boys discuss the NHL playoff races, the Canucks vs. COVID, the trade deadline and where Taylor Hall might end up, the NHL Awards Watch, the top 10 centers in the NHL and then have a spirited overrated/underrated debate about the best wrestling villains as WrestleMania arrives. Sponsored by Raycon.
Freaking great, makes quarantine tolerable
I just discovered this and it’s freaking great. Tons of good hockey talk. Smart but funny, way better than sport talk radio. Way better than a lot of fan pods. And fun pop culture talk too.
This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a podcast review. Love this show and the nuanced intelligent takes the hosts have. It also often makes me laugh out loud and the only podcast I listen to right when it come out. Love this pod and would highly recommend it!
