Consistency

Kelli and his team at Rush hockey are amazing and have done so much to help promote and support the Girls/Woman’s game of hockey! That said:

For those of us who enjoy your Podcasts, in my opinion you need longer shows for sure. Most of the good hockey podcasts that I listen to on both sides (men/woman) have shows that last at least 50 to 90 minutes. Especially- if your not going to put out Content every week or at least every 2 weeks. We need to continue to provide more Girls only hockey content and Rush is one of those champions that we need to hear more from.
