Guys =excellent, Shalyn= good, Megan’s = Terrible

The guys podcast I would give 5 stars all day long. The girls podcast could be great (5 stars)but is ( 2 stars) terrible because of Megan. Shalyn is definitely good and just beginning her career in the hockey world. I truly believe if Shalyn drops the dead weight of Megan and gets another talent such as herself the podcast would grow quickly. Shalyn is only going to get better and better! Megan is highly uninformed, annoying, and goes off on long tangent that all start with something similar to this. “idk What I think. I think I think this maybe but also like I don’t really think that so I like don’t know what I think.” which leads to nowhere all the time. Seriously, Megan go to any college and take a speech class if you want to be on a podcast. You are single handily dragging Shalyn down and the reputations of the second city podcast. Shalyn and the guys keep up the great work!! I listen to every podcast, minus when I can’t handle listening to Megan anymore and turn off that episode. Sorry, Shalyn keep up the good work! I believe you will have a long and good career!

Only pod I listen to

Three broooooooos

Reason for this?

I have listened to about a dozen of the episodes.

There are well-meaning, pleasant people involved (and for that, I gave it an extra star). However, this podcast does not offer expert insight into the sport or the team. It is hard to recommend this unless someone is specifically seeking casual fans’ opinions on the team (including cringe-inducing forays into such topics as the physical attractiveness to the female co-hosts of Calvin De Haan).

Other podcasts (like Spittin Chiclets, and to a lesser extent, Live From the Five Hole) also go into cringey and questionable subtopics, but have more inherent hockey IQ to back up the hockey-focused discussions.
