Sorry to start the week off on a somber note - but I've decided to step away from the podcast for a bit. With my personal life being crazy, it's been tough doing the research and recording new interviews. I still love doing them and will try and release new episodes when I can. Thank you for everything over the past year and a half. This is goodbye....for now....

Excellent podcast about hockey people
It is great to hear specific players talk about specific stories or experiences. Brett does well to get players to discuss the smaller details. This podcast is unique in that it does not focus on the big name stars; often Brett interviews lesser known players. Sometimes he leads the players too much, but he probably does so in order to get the players to open up and also to advance the narrative. All in all, a great podcast and an important addition to the universe of hockey history
Hockey History at its Finest!!
Brett does a great job of getting the story “straight from the horse’s mouth”! Awesome interviews with past NHL players who provide listeners with first-hand insights into the history of the game. If you’re a hockey fan and aren’t subscribed to this podcast already, you are missing out!! Thank you Brett for creating a unique show that keeps us entertained from start to finish - keep up the great work!!
This is truly a great podcast. If you like hockey it provides many angles to stories it tells. Player persprectives on and off the ice, personal and emotional states, and much more. I wouldn't mind episodes on little known great moments in International Hockey History, AHL history, or even stories about the WHA.
