This is a great podcast that combines smaller town views and history with big world thinking from guests you won’t get anywhere else. Also a great podcast for a hockey novice like myself from MN to keep me up on the latest hockey water cooler talk at the office.

Great stories

Growing up in the Northwoods and moving down to Texas. This has been a fantastic flashback to the great times (and even better people) that exist up north. Keep up the great work, looking forward to the future episodes.
